Welcome to San Marino

San Marino is the third smallest country in Europe, and claims to be the world’s oldest republic. Marino is surrounded by Italy. It is situated in the Apennines, a little inland from the Adriatic Sea near Rimini.

The country is in part of the Apennine mountain range so there is little flat ground to be found.

Most cultural attractions are in the capital city, which is also named San Marino. At the top of a mountain, the City of San Marino is full of, fortress towers, old buildings, restaurants, and medieval markets, as well as several small museums, and has beautiful views of the nearby towns and forested countryside.
