Welcome to the Land of Liberty: San Marino, the world's smallest, oldest republic. It is also the third smallest state in Europe after the Vatican and Monaco located by the Adriatic sea and surrounded by the panoramic landscape of the mountains and flatlands. So what is so special about this tiny land?
San Marino is a tiny landlocked republic whose independence has faced many near misses in history. Being totally surrounded by Italian territory, this mini-state does not lack uniqueness, although it is hard to find in its capital city. The non-tourist area is where you can rub elbows with the natives and taste local meals for reasonable prices.
