One of the smallest nations in the world meets some of the world’s most spectacular views
Ciao! Italian speaking San Marino is the fifth-smallest fully recognised country on the planet. And somehow, it’s been around, as tiny as it is, since AD 301. Its capital is Unesco listed Citta di San Marino. Highlights include, a neo-gothic public palace, a national museum featuring a trove of jewels from the 6th Century, and Torre Cesta castle. This final attraction is particularly notable for its views over the country, and Italy beyond. In fact, the breathtaking clifftop views are something that has been drawing visitors to San Marino for as long as it has been around. So, a while… If you want to explore a city on foot, and take a funicular to some of the best views in Europe, then VISIT SAN MARINO!
