      San Marino Details

      San Marino is a tiny (6 square kilometers) independent republic near the Italian city of Rimini. It has a population of about 23,000. San Marino has been independent of the Italian government for centuries. Napoleon once called it a perfect republic. It now depends almost wholly on the tourist industry for income. Though it is very small, San Marino is a great place to spend a vacation or just a weekend. This is an excellent base from which to tour northern Italy. San Marino has three medieval citadels: Montale, Rocca and Cesta, all connected by a walkway. This walkway offers excellent views of the Adriatic coast. In the Church of San Francesco, guests of San Marino hotels can see a painting of St. Francis by Guernico. There is also a Madonna and Child that is attributed to Raphael. Hotels in San Marino and surrounding Italian communities cater to every travel budget, from the very expensive to the practical.
