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. 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.

By other means
There is a 1.5 km cable railway connecting the city of San Marino to Borgo Maggior.
Once you're inside the walled city, it's small enough to simply walk around. There are only a few streets on which cars are able to drive (and only if they are small cars).
The people in San Marino are very friendly. They speak a very clear Italian.
You can see two of the three towers (as seen on the flag of San Marino) by purchasing the "Red Card" for ?4.50. The "yellow card" (?3) only allows you to see one of the towers. You cannot enter the third tower (since there does not seem to be an entrance!)
Simply walk around the city. The narrow streets are full of surprises. The walkways wind up and down the hillside in an interesting way, inviting exploration.
The local beer is very tasty. Spirits are also very commonly found, especially a lemon liquor.
Although San Marino has a few hotels, the seaside resort of Rimini has a lot more and is probably a cheaper option.
San marino is a safe country. no real threat from terrorists or war.
