San Marino is the third smallest state in Europe (after the Holy See and Monaco) also claims to be the world's oldest republic. According to tradition, it was founded by a Christian stonemason named Marinus in 301 A.D. San Marino's foreign policy is aligned with that of Italy, which surrounds it. Social and political trends in the republic also track closely with those of its larger neighbor.
San Marino is made up of a few towns dotted around the mountain sides. The capital of San Marino is itself called 'San Marino' and is situated high up on a mountain top. The capital is surrounded by a wall and three distinct towers overlook the rest of the country.
The towns surrounding the capital are more industrial and generally not as attractive as the main city.
Things to see include two of the three towers (as seen on the flag of San Marino) by purchasing a "Red Card" for €4.50. A "yellow card" (€3) only allows you to see one of the towers, and the thrird you cannot enter because there does not seem to be an entrance!
Simply walking around the city, one will find surprises hidden away in the narrow streets. The walkways wind up and down the hillside in an interesting way, inviting exploration.
