Via Salita alla Rocca 7, San Marino, 47890, San Ma
the best location for sightseeing or for romantic
Located in the heart of the medieval city, it is the best place for sightseeing you can imagine. It is no more than 10 minutes on foot to reach towers Guaita and Chesta ( www.museidistato.sm ), though all the time climbing the mountain:) There are lots of all kind the restaurants and shops around. Very close to the cable car station (http://www.aass.sm/default.asp?id=1006), with the stunning views of the surrounding area. From this station it is easy to descend into the Borgo Maggiore to walk there and then by the same way to return back to San Marino. The only negative - if you with your luggage climb up from the bus stop will be difficult. However you can order a taxi, we did that on the way back. It cost 12 Euros from the hotel to the station from which buses depart to Rimini (http://www.bus.it/benedettini/autolinee.htm or http://www.bonellibus.it/portale/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=79&Itemid=55).
Located in a historic building, many rooms offer a spectacular view from a window. From my room I could admire the Chesta tower and medieval walls. Rooms are perfectly clean and comfortable, with hardwood floors, nice furniture and quality shower. The room also had an electronic safe, lacking only, perhaps, tea accessories, but it is hardly can found in Italy, in 9 hotels I visited in this country, I met only once a teapot . So I will not dwell on this particular attention, especially as a breakfast in the hotel is above all praise, perhaps, best of all those 9 Italian hotels :) And a great coffee, which will be cooked for you.
The hotel staffs are extremely polite and attentive; I want to mention their goodwill and willingness to help.
Rooms have a free Wi-Fi, just ask for a password on reception.

If u have a 90 day visa waiver for the schengen area... and u go to San Marino and u live in San Marino for the next 90 days.... does this satisfy the 90 day out requirement..
and if so... then how does one prove within ones passport that one has been out of the schengen area for the 90 days..
Does the schengen agreement reguire an exit stamp?
Will a souvineer tourist stamp in the passport satisfy authoritys.. (2 stamps... one stamp on each end of the 90 day period.
Re: Can somebody clear this up>>>>>> (meeting schengen requirenments ).....................
Usually nobody will see your passport, you won't get any stamp on it and nobody will stop and ask you anything.
That's does not mean they don't work, they are always present and if they decide to stop people to see their documents, they will.
In case the customs will ask to stop your car, you'd better do it, it happened they fired sometime..
A TOTAL AMOUNT of 90 days are for all schengen area, not for each COuntry :-)
Travel Tips for San Marino
Since San Marino is part of the Euro Currency Zone it also mints own coins. The San Marino coins in particulary are very seldom to be found and most of the times they have to be purchased in souvenir shops. If you are a coin collector make sure you negotiate the price - since on my visit the price varied quiet a bit!!
The Medieval Festival.
Check out the dates for the Medieval festival. You'll forget the present for a weekend and travel back 700 years in time. There will be costume parades, archery competitions, public banquets, dancing, sword fighting, horses, drums. If it's Medieval, it will be there. Everyone dresses up for the occasion, even the chambermaids at the hotel !!
What to do ...
I think it wasn't the most important for me to visit the museums and sights in San Marino.
The shopping wasn't the important too ... of course I bought for myself the leather-belt (cost 5 EUR) and almond-liqueur Amaretto (cost only 2,40 EUR) and the music CD (cost 5 EUR).
For my soul was more important the walk by streets, where I've enjoying the scenic views, what there was ...
If you haven't the wish to walk by anabatic streets, then you can just sit in the street-cafe and enjoy the views and streetlife right at the cafe-table.
I'm sure, when you visiting the San Marino, you like this city ...
There are also plenty of churches worth seeing in San Marino, including the "Basilica del Santo", containing the remains and artefacts of the patron saint of the republic. The bell tower dates back to the 7th century, while the main building was constructed in the 19th century. The quaint churches of Chiesa di San Francesco and San Pietro are also nearby.
Basilica of the Saint
The Basilica del Santo was planned in a neoclassical style by the architect Antonio Serra; it rises were once the ancient parish church was which was demolished later on to allow its building. The Basilica is a very important church for the Repubblic of San Marino and it is situated in the centre of San Marino.
The Third Tower was probably built as a look-out tower to protect the left side of the Cesta against sudden attacks coming from the near Malatesta castle of Fiorentino.
Nobody can say for sure when this tower on the edge of the cliff was built.
Access is restricted to the outside of the fortress.
