Trip Report San Marino - The world's smallest country

Jump to last reply

We drove from Urbino along winding, climbing narrow roads for about an hour trying not to get lost. In the distance we could see what resembled the "Prudential Rock" - this was San Marino. We finally arrived - Bienvenuto!!

The car then climbed and climbed some more until we reached the top - or so we thought. A busy place with tourists and a policeman in a bright yellow shprt holding up traffic so the pedestrians could cross the road and enter the gate. We parked and joined the crowd.

The narrow streets were lined with expensive shops and little restaurants. We walked up the alleyways, always climbing until we reached the top - and the view - oh the view! I now know the feeling when one scales Mt Everest and looks out from the top of the world!

Although we did not look at mountain tops - the vista was equally as impressive. Miles and miles of green valleys, hills, villages - all the way to the Adriatic Sea. They say on a clear day one can see Croatia - I'm not sure about that, but it is possible if you dream a bit.

I stood there, unable to take my eyes off the magnificent view!! We then walked up to the basilica and the 1st of the 3 castles. Time restrictions prevented us from walking to the others, but we didn't feel as if we missed anything.

On the way down we passed a shop where I bought a pocketbook - maybe overpriced, but a memento of San Marino - the country on a cliff.

Spending an hour or 2 there was surely worth the drive.
The road back to Rimini was direct and quick. An awesome stop at San Marino!!
