Info on San Marino

Jump to last reply

Don't go if you have a choice!!! We made a special
daytrip from the Chianti hills by car last October 8
to see the annual Ferrari races (there is a Ferrari
museum there) and it was a TOTAL waste of time. The
entire city/country is one huge tourist trap, dirty
too. Too bad because it is positioned in beautiful
surroundings and the history of it is interesting.Or
rent a car for the day and drive around the coutyside.
We came accross a small town truffle festival on our
way there.

    I don't know about San Marino, but I can certainly recommend the town of Urbino which is located
    in the Le Marche district of Italy, not too far away. One guide book states:
    "If you only visit one town in Italy, make it Urbino. A perfectly harmonious ensemble, under
    the aegis of philosopherwarrior Federico da Montefeltro (1444-1482) the city exemplified
    the finest in Renaissance style and tradition. It is no wonder that Castiglione described Federico
    as the "light of Italy" and set the elegant dialogues of his book _The Courtier_ in Urbino's
    Palazzo Ducale. Urbino's fairytale skyline has changed little in the last 500 years."
    Although you may have to spend some effort to get there (Get to the coastal town of Pesaro, then take
    the bus to Urbino) it is well worth the effort. It is a small town that can be seen in one energetic
    day. The ducal palace is now an excellent museum and the town is very beautiful. I read
    _The Courtier_ in university and I always wanted to see it. I went there in 1993 and I was not
    disappointed.
    I urge you to investigate the viability of getting to Urbino.
