San Marino may be one of the world’s smallest countries, but it has lots to offer as a great holiday destination. Founded in the 4th century, the landlocked country surrounded by Italy is home to an array of attractions and historical sites to explore – and is widely thought to be the world’s oldest surviving republic.
To help you make the most of your holiday here, we’re sharing our top tips for a brilliant break in San Marino…
Explore an epic mountain
Mount Titano (Mount Titan) is a mountain of the Apennines and the highest peak in San Marino, standing at an impressive 739 metres above sea level. The mountain, joined with the San Marino Historic Centre, is a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site and must-visit on your holiday to this beautiful country. On the ridge of the mountain is the historic city of San Marino of the Republic of San Marino, a pretty city dating back to the 4th century. With the fortifications and towers on its upper levels, Mount Titan is a brilliant place to visit.
A fantastic amusement park
The San Marino Adventures Amusement Park is the largest on the Adriatic Coast and a hugely popular attraction for families in particular. The park offers a handful of fun trails up to 18 metres high for a fun, adrenalin-filled day, located five minutes away from the old town centre of San Marino.
Adventure from Italy
While San Marino isn’t technically Italy, it’s surrounded by Italy’s Emilia-Romagna and Le Marche regions near the Adriatic Sea, meaning you can easily day a day trip here from cities like Florence, Rimini or Bologna.
San Marino offers duty-free shopping from its plethora of great outlet malls, souvenir shops and quirky, independent stores.
An array of museums
San Marino offers an array of fantastic museums to explore. Its Museo di Stato, which dates back to the 19th century, boasts an extensive collection of historical and artistic items coming from San Marino, from the Neolithic to Early Middle Ages as well as paintings from the 17th century.
The Museum of Curiosities is a fun and quirky attraction, home to a collection of odd objects, peculiar inventions and their stories from an 18th century mouse-trap to a display about the world’s tallest man. From a museum devoted to vintage cars to another dedicated to agricultural culture and traditions – there’s a museum for everyone!
The impressive Basilica di San Marino
A visit to the Basilica di San Marino is essential on your holiday here. The Catholic church, located in the Republic of San Marino, is often referred to as the main church of the city, dating back to the early 19th century. Offering beautiful paintings inside and impressive architecture, the church is a great place for a relaxing time on your San Marino getaway.
