"Little but Worth Seeing" San Marino by maxovna

<b>We visited San Marino on the way from <font color=teal>Rimini Airport</font> to <font color=teal>Lido di Esolo</font> (a little resort town near <font color=teal>Venice</font>). It is an independent state though they use Italian currency and speak Italian. They have their own laws - rather strict I should say: it is impossible to get citizenship of San Marino even by marriage. Now the population of San Marino is about 23 000 people.
This diminutive state is situated on a high hill - we rode along the serpentine. The view from the summit is great - the Adriatic Sea looks so beautiful, roofs are tiled, the fields and meadows are bright green!
We had very little time , and it was already getting dark, but we still had a walk to the fortress and the castle. The wind whistled in our ears. Then we returned downtown -he streets are narrow, everything is "combed" and toy-looking. There are plenty of nice and cosy-looking shops, cafes and restaurants. Unfortunately, the basilica was already closed.
Yor are welcome to my travelogue where I briefly wrote about the history of this city-state!</b>
