    Tax free shopping

    San Marino has loads of shops as they are tax free. So you can stock up on perfumes, cigarettes, alcohol, jewellery etc - even knives! There is no border control into Italy so I suppose you can take back as much as you like.

    Old town: More stores for handbag

    by shavy Written Nov 15, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    How more we wander around how more shops we saw. And I notice almost in every corner in every streets in the city are full with handbag stores unbelievable! I have done some research before taking this trip. San Marino is depending on the tourism, which they receive plenty of visitors every year, that's why all the shops

    The easiest thing of the shops here, they put some sample in the window. That way no need to go inside, first look through the window if you like something from the display. If you can't find, go to next door. Handbag stores is next to each other. Is amazing city I've ever seen.

    Most of the shops give a discount, and many of the leathers are on sale. Tax free shopping is all what we need. But the problem is, we also need to buy extra suitcase. This what they say, shop till you drop.

    For people doesn't know yet, if coming to San Marino be sure to have a bigger suitcase. Outside town there is a big factory outlet store where you can purchase much more of the Italian brands in less priced. But we didn't make it there, we run out of time

    What to buy: Leather handbags, belt, wallet

    Pleasures of life

    by vysnaite Written Sep 28, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you might already know San Marino is a separate republic, even if it's in a heart of Italy. They have lower taxes than Italy on most popular things that make life more pleasurable, so the shops you'd care to visit and spend less are: tobacco/sigarettes, alcol, perfumes.

    What to buy: Cheaper cost on:
    Perfumes, sigarettes, tobacco, alcohol and other pleasurable legal "drugs" ;-) (as for real drugs, don't ask, I don't use them and they are illegal there too =))

    A Practical Souvenir

    by von.otter Written Mar 31, 2011

    “The Republic of San Marino comprises an area of seventeen square miles, which is wholly inclosed within the kingdom of Italy, and contains eight thousand inhabitants. It is irregularly shaped, the greatest length from north to south being seven miles; the greatest width being five miles.”
    — from “The Republic of San Marino” 1880 by Carlo Bruc, duca di Busignano

    Many of the shops lining the stone-paved streets of San Marino sell the most common of goods. They are cheap looking, undoubtedly made in China, and look as if they could be bought anywhere else in the world.

    We opted to buy a practical souvenir to remind us of this mountaintop republic, jackets bearing the San Marino coat-of-arms.

    The stall where we found these stylish numbers was located outside the frenzied main shopping area of the historic center; it was closer to the third tower, high on the mountain. It was run by two women, so enthusiastic to make a sale they lowered the price by 25%! That helped cover the exchange rate difference.

    Many of the shops: Local stuff

    by shavy Written Nov 15, 2014

    The Old Town is a spectacular play of colors and lights and in every street, neighborhood or square are little shops offering all kinds of goods.

    The more traditional souvenirs to the most sophisticated jewelry. Typically, the production of ceramic objects and decorations which events in the history of San Marino are shown.

    While wandering around I was amazed all the shops in the city. Each of them is very colorful. I always has to remember that the city is tax free and shopping here is less expensive than in Italy.

    As I looking around for local souvenirs, no idea which one to choose. They have so many local stuff, and finally we decide to buy the smallest they have, as we have small luggage

    What to pay: Stated from 5 euro and up

    Handbag shopping

    by shavy Updated Nov 15, 2014

    I have found the shop of handbag outside the old town. When we walk down we pass to this shop. As I look to the window they have nice display. I went inside and I thought I was in the wrong shop. Is one store with two door, you can walk from one shop to the other without going outside

    There were two middle aged women, and they really are good with English, I thought I'm gonna speak Italian again, but they speak English as well. Inside they have plenty of stock, in one side of the store all stock were on sales but I didn't find what I'm looking for.

    The sales lady said, we have more stock and new collection next door. So, I've take a look to the new collection and here I've found the handbag I was really looking for. They have plenty of stock and color in available. I bought two different style.

    In this store you will find different brands of handbags. If the color you like didn't stands in the shop you may always ask if they have another color in stock. They have every style and they only shows one color, but if you like in another color, like me, I like the black one , she went go after it

    The two women were very friendly and helpful. I can't decide which color I have to take so, I ask their opinion about it and they give me a good advice which color fits for me. I got 10% discount from the original price, I was very glad.

    What to buy: Leathers, scarf, gloves

    What to pay: from 109 euro and up

    People of San Marino are proud of their old weapons collection. No wonder that replicas of those weapons are being sold all around San Marino as souvenirs. They come in all shapes and sizes.
