San Marino's economy is based almost entirely on tourism. And in order to attract tourists, the country offers duty-free shopping. An unfortunate result is that the country seems to be overrun with day trippers on a mad shopping spree. There are countless souvenir shops selling liqueurs, Moscato wines, leather goods, tacky glassware, cheap jewelry, replicas of medieval swords, and other assorted junk. The hoards of shoppers and souvenir shops spoil the asthetics of the country, in my opinion.
