Flights from San Marino
The micro-nation of San Marino, or the Most Serene Republic of San Marino (Serenissima Repubblica di San Marino) arguably poses as one of the most beautiful and successful countries in the world. The 61-square kilometre region enjoys a high Human Development Index, with a per capita income of US $44,208 (nominal GDP), and the claim to being the lone surviving city-state in the Italian network, even if the more powerful kingdoms of Genoa and Venice has fallen. Aside from its economic stability, it also houses one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and is home to many natural and historical venues.
The state is described as 'medieval', since its architecture and ways are typical of the period. Lines of honour guards can be seen rounding the cobbled pathways, with narrow streets adorned by homes to the locals, and domes and pillars inspired by the Roman tradition, particularly of Venice and Milan. The country is also home to various natural wonders and fortresses overlooking any threats to its inhabitants. Considered an offering to the heavens, the city's patron is Saint Marinus, the founder of a chapel and monastery in the country where he grew up in.
Museo di Stato – The Museo di Stato is the keeper of San Marino's rich and colourful history. The museum is filled with exhibits pertaining to the earliest listed information on the country, and of course, a look at the culture of the people and their leaders. It is San Marino's biggest museum, located at the heart of the capital.
Three Towers of San Marino – This group of towers are San Marino's crowning jewels located in the three peaks of its Monte Titano (Titan Mountain). The first tower, Guiata, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the most famous of the three, briefly serving as a prison and built in the 11th century. The second tower, Cesta, is located on the peak of Monte Titano, where a museum in honour of Saint Marinus is housed. It was constructed in the 13th century as a fortress overlooking the city, while the museum was created in 1956. The third tower is named as Montale, and is the smallest in the group. Though not open to the public, it can be viewed via the vista provided by the first and the second towers.
Festivals in San Marino – If visiting in the month of October, especially in the late weeks, you may chance upon a few festivals to pump up your sightseeing. The Chocotitano Festival is a two-day feast dedicated to chocolates. Activities such as tastings, workshops, and others may be enjoyed during these days. Aside from this, the San Marino International Film Festival launch also lands on the same days, and tourists may enjoy the Italian made films along with other international film participants. Lastly, the RallyLegend is held between the months of September and December, so if you're up for some adrenaline pumping action, then watch as the best pilots battle it out in a rally.
While in San Marino, travellers may also experience a one of a kind cable car ride between the Historical Center and the Borgo Maggiore, with a 200km view of the Adriatic coast.
If going out of San Marino on a short-haul trip, it is best to enjoy the countries in the European region, starting with Italy. See the cities like Milan, Rome, Florence, and Venice, and check out on the rich culture and tradition along with the great pizzas and pastas found in the hole-in-the-wall eateries. Also catch some great finds on leather goods. After Italy, jump in to Germany and experience a historical trip in the city of Berlin, and drink and dance the night away in the city of Munich. Lastly, cap off your trip and experience the clear blue waters of Santorini in Greece.
If opting out of San Marino, Italy, and of Europe per se, it is best to visit the mysterious Asian countries found in West and Central Asia. A marketplace of varying cultures and traditions, countries in the said regions are definitely worth the visit. Check out the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and go for a romantic Arabian night in the middle of the desert, buy some exotic spices, and enjoy the culture of the Arabians. Just be careful when travelling on today's danger zones like the Gaza strip, Egypt, and others, and make sure that you are updated on the latest news concerning these countries.
