    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you like to stay ouf of the crowd or have a rest, there is a nice small garden near the Cava dei Balestrieri. It is on the way to Palazzo Pubblico.

    Inside this garden there are some benches and four beautiful statues.

    Passport stamp

    by Willettsworld Updated Aug 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you take your passport with you when you visit, you can get it stamped in the Official Information office. Just pop in, present your passport and € 2,50 and ask for a tourist stamp. The lady will then place 2 San Marino postage stamps neatly on a page and then stamp them. These are the neatest visa stamps I have in my passport!

    Address: Contrada del Collegio. Open: 10am - 5pm.

    Pick up an information booklet

    Favorite thing: If you travel up to San Marino via the cable car then pick up an information booklet at the station. The booklet tells you all you need to know about San Marino along with a map so you can plan your journey.

    Assisi

    by GUYON Updated Aug 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Goto Assisi and visit the Basilica San Francesco.
    We visited it one month before the earthquake which had damaged the church and the fresco. On this famous painting, San francesco receives the Christ marks.

    {see more on my travelogue}

    Fondest memory: In an underground crypt, there is the Santa Clara's relic kept by the religious order she created. A nun receives the demands of prayer and the entiere mumyfied body of the saint is behind her in a reliquary.

    San Marinos Coat-of-arms

    by Enzyme_X Written Aug 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The official coat-of-arms of the Republic San Marino is made of a crown (the symbolf of sovereignity) with a pearl and a cross on the top. On a blue background of the coat-of-arms are three green hills and on top of them three silver towers. From each one an ostrich feather sticks out. Left and right from are two branches. On the left is laurelbranch, on the right oakbranch. The two branches are bound together with a strip on which stands a word ''liberty''.

    San Marino's Flag

    by Enzyme_X Written Jul 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: San Marinos flag is made of two ribbons. The upper one is white as the symbol of peace, the lower one is azure as the symbol of freedom. In the middle is the republics coat-of-arms.

    Nobody knows when was this flag used for the first time. It's asumed it was introduced at the end of 18th century.

    Coins with a history...

    by sourbugger Updated Jan 30, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: San Marino is not one of the member nations of the European Union, but it uses the Euro as it's legal tender.

    It actually has it's own coins (but not notes) with various historical buildings on them. As it can only issue coins in relation to the population of the country, it follows that San Marino coins are compartively rare.

    A full set of them makes quite a nice souvenir, but as far as I can work out only those above 20 cents in value are actually in circulation. The smaller value ones just appear in 'collectors sets'.

    Fondest memory: The One Euro coin inparticular features the coat of arms of the country.

    Welcome To The Ancient Land Of Freedom!

    by aliante1981 Written Jan 4, 2004

    Favorite thing: Just the title I used for my San Marino page:)) Why?? Well, I did not invent this slogan myself. In fact, it greets the numerous visitors the tiny state surrounded by Italy get each year.

    The sense and importance of the slogan can be estimated from the following fact. San Marino was, in fact, the first state on Earth to adopt the republic as its form of government ý a form now used by the overwhelming majority of all the countries.

    The lesson to learn from a visit to San Marino: never judge the achievements of a country (& of anything/anybody else for that matter) by its sizeý

    Giardino dei Liburni.

    by Maurizioago Written Sep 26, 2010

    Favorite thing: This is another place to rest after a long hike in San Marino. There are several stone benches, a large fountain built in the 60's ( you don't see it here; sorry.) and a cafe nearby.
