San Marino

SUMMARY

I loved the tiny country of San Marino! The views from the old town over Italy and the Adriatic see are breathtaking. You can definitely spend at least a full day exploring the city.

The official currency is the Euro, but I had no problem paying by credit card as well.

Local TRANSPORTATION

There is not really any local transportation for tourists. The country is so small I was able to walk anywhere easily. My hotel also provided a few car trips into the city for me.
