Continent San Marino


Why Travel San Marino?


San Marino is a mountainous microstate surrounded by Italy. Among the world’s oldest republics, it retains much of its historic architecture. On the slopes of Monte Titano sits the capital, also called San Marino, known for its medieval walled old town and narrow cobblestone streets. The Three Towers, castle-like citadels dating to the 11th century, sit atop 3 of Titano’s neighboring peaks.


The country might be small, but it is jam-packed with amazing attractions and activities. From several townships, fascinating sightseeing and shopping to many wonderful places to explore, there is enough one can do in San Marino.


When here, do admire the beauty of Basilica di San Marino—a church that holds relics of Saint Marino himself, who is credited with founding the Republic of San Marino in the 4th century. You could also delve into the past at the Museum of Emigration, enjoy art old and new at St Francis' Museum or simply enjoy the great outdoors where you could visit the scented pine forests, fields and waterways of the territory – perfect for riding, fishing and walking. For more adrenaline-fuelled fun, the precipitous slopes surrounding the capital offer testing mountain bike trails.


Another worth exploring place is the National Museum that features archaeological finds from the Neolithic Age, artefacts from the Etruscans, Romans and Byzantines, as well as Renaissance paintings and relics of San Marino's own unique coinage. Next on your list should be the medieval center, watching the changing of the guard at Palazzo Pubblico and sailing regatta.


For those who aren’t a history beef, shopping comes for rescue. Collectibles like ceramic plates, golden coins, and stamps are available, not to mention a range of world-renowned fashion brands. These are located in the shopping centers around San Marino. Markets are also found in the republic’s largest town, Borgo Maggiore.
