Trip Report Don't Overlook San Marino - Trip Report

Jump to last reply

In all the talk of Italy on Fodor's i rarely see anything on San Marino and rarely see anyone planning to go there or asking about it.

Too bad IMO as San Marino is not a mesmerizingly gorgeous place - really being the quintessenial Italian hill town in many way - but is also a novelty and one of Europe's most overrun tourist meccas - mainly for Italians and the multi-national brigade of folks staying on nearby Adriatic beaches around nearly Rimini.

Offhand you would think that if this is one of the most tourist dominated places around that it could not be gorgeous - but that indeed is the case as you can easily get around the mobs of tourist that stick to the souvenir-shop dominated city central if you climb up to the crag-top fortresses that once guarded the Principality

and the tourists don't ruin the sweeping views over the bucolic hills that surround the town on all sides.

Anyway this starts my Trip Report (pronounced "Trip Repoor") to San Marino - and i'd love to hear the experiences of others in the Principality of San Marino.
