San Marino Travel Information


San Marino Flag The Most Serene Republic of San Marino (Italian: Serenissima Repubblica di San Marino) is a small landlocked country situated in an enclave completely surrounded by Italy. The country is just over 24 square miles (61 km2) in area.

San Marino traces its roots back to September 3rd 301 when a stonecutter, Marinus of Rab (Saint Marinus), reputedly founded the city. It also has the oldest Consitution (dating to 1600) still in effect of any state. The reason that San Marino remains independent from Italy relates to the struggle for Italian unification during the 19th century: San Marino served as a refuge for many people who were persecuted for promoting Italian unifiction, and in return, Giuseppe Garibaldi respected the wishes of San Marino not to incorporated into the new Italian state.

As of the 2009, the population of San Marino was estimated to be 30,167. The capital of the state is the City of San Marino, which has a population of about 4,500. However, the largest settlement in the Republic is Dogana, which has a population of about 7,000.

Product Description:
Bradt’s new Emilia-Romagna is the most thorough and in-depth guide available to this entire north Italian region (not just Bologna and the main cities) with a strong focus on history, background information, art and culture, as well as extensive detail on the Apennines along the Tuscan border, where you can escape the flatlands of the Po and go trekking, cycling and skiing. Here are some of region’s prettiest villages, including Vignola, famous for cherries and lovely medieval Castell’Arquato and Brisighella. To the east, the Romagna part of the region boasts long sandy Adriatic beaches, wildlife-filled lagoons around the Po Delta, and the world’s smallest republic, San Marino.

Written by expert authors Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls, possibly the world’s most experienced travel writers on Italy, Bradt’s Emilia-Romagna is the definitive guide to this diverse and authentic area. Bologna, the regional capital, is covered in detail, from accommodation and restaurants to galleries, museums, shopping and the new Fico Eataly food theme park.

Emilia-Romagna combines the rich farmlands of the Po plain with dazzling cities strung like pearls along the straight-as-a-die Via Emilia. The capital Bologna, home to the world’s oldest university, and the smaller cities of Parma, Modena, Ferrara, Piacenza, Ravenna and Rimini are year-round destinations, each strikingly different, each filled with art and architectural masterpieces and fascinating museums housing everything from Etruscan vases to still life by Giorgio Morandi. Ravenna glitters with Byzantine mosaics; Parma, the town of Correggio, is mad about opera; Modena, with its stupendous medieval cathedral, is the hometown of Pavarotti and Ferrari; Ferrara has delightful early Renaissance frescoes; Rimini was immortalized by Fellini in Amarcord. With Bradt’s Emilia-Romagna you can discover all of this and more.

With 28 town and area maps, plus language, art and architecture glossaries, full practical information and all the background context you could need, Bradt’s Emilia-Romagna is the perfect companion for art lovers, food lovers, families taking a beach holiday and city break enthusiasts of all ages.

Product Description:
This unique book examines the history, culture, and inner workings of the seven smallest independent countries in Europe. These are among the oldest states on the continent and, despite their diversity, they have much in common. Most have relatively high per capita incomes and life expectancies, and relatively low unemployment. This narrative presents the unique issues that confront small countries, including maintaining their independence, economic viability, preserving their native languages, and sustaining their governments. The second part of the book describes each microstate in turn, showing how each one has met these challenges and adapted over time. These concise and engaging chapters contain cultural information on subjects including the arts, gastronomy, and popular tourist sites.
