    walking in the city

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many smal lanes. And many tourists. They walk and make shoping in many of little shops with souvenirs, juwelery, alcohol... The prices are really profitable.
    And there are of cours many nice restaurants and cafes.
    I like very much the little gardens on the roofs.

    Palazzo Pubblico

    by vysnaite Written Sep 28, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    constructed between 1380 and 1392 and has been rebuilt on various occasions. The stones that were used for it had been extracted from the Titano caves. Here you can see standing guards and on the left quite a nice panoramic view. The name of the square is - the square of freedo (piazza della liberta).Under the square used to be antique system of cisterns connected together for the collection of rain water, once used as a water reserve for the citizens.

    Government building

    by Ranieri Updated Jun 29, 2003

    Since San Marino is a republic, a must see is the government building.

    The photo shows me with the parliament in the background. There are guards patrolling the government but since there hasn't been a war for centuries, they haven't been called into action much!

    Look out for the crazy man controlling traffic at the gate at the bottom of the hill - he takes his job very seriously !!

    Just leaning !

    This is again in the city center.. Tipical from Italian architecture, with an obelick in the middle fed with shops and cafes around... The difference is you are 600 meters high from sea level and have a breathtaking view in front of you..

    Ok this is another building from the place.. But you'll ask, why this is under "must see activity"? Should I see it? And I give the answer: Where we are talking about is so small you can't miss it.. So everything here is a must seen activity... 8))
    By the way, I really like this style.. ;)) Neo Classic should be..

    I don't have an idea about this building.. What it is being used for.. But it's a good example of tipical architecture of San Marino... Also what I really liked here was the buildings on the hills, their balconies are looking to the view and the ppl who live there should feel like on an airplane everyday!!! The ones who has aerofobia should avoid these apartments.. ;))

    As you walk up the narrow pathway towards the top of the mountain, you'll end up here. I don't really know what this building is, most probably some kind of government office. But, if you are interested, you can find out more from THE UFFICIO DI STATO PER IL TURISMO (Tel: 882998) in the Palazzo del Turismo, Contrada Omagnano 20.

    Scenery and history combine to make this a great place if you're looking to escape the beach-routine of Rimini . . .
