After enjoying the gorgeous countryside of Le Marche, we did a short day trip in San Marino which is actually it’s own country surrounded by Italy.
This small independent country is known for its medieval historic town and cobblestone streets where the city sits on top of Mount Titano. The historic city center is pretty small but beautifully maintained and the views at the top were superb.
We even saw a Shiba Inu which made our day.
There are three towers all within the town (Guaita, Cesta, and Montale). Pictured below is the second tower, Cesta.
While our excursion here was short, I’m glad we got to visit a new destination where you feel like you’ve been transported back in time!
