Most wouldn’t know that there is wee republic – completely independent -buried in the Italian hills.
I decided to spend a few delightful nights in San Marino. I didn’t really know what to expect, aside from a lofty drive to the top of the mountain.
What I found, I liked.
A tonne of tourists, which made for exceptional people watching. I am fascinated by tour groups.
The best bit is that they are only there during the day, on bus trips. So, once 4 pm rolls around, the city gets very quiet, which is a perfect time for those of us who remain to poke around this gorgeous place. Delightfully lit streets and alley ways. Comfortable bars and really lovely restaurants.
And the views … of the Adriatic and of the surrounding Italian countryside. I’ll let you go see those for yourself.
