San Marino Travel Guide

San Marino is the fifth smallest country of the world and the cutest country I have been to. You don’t need any passport or visa to enter the country.

This country is located at 650 m above the sea level with some awe inspiring view of the coast and countryside.

It has its owns stamps, military and even a football team. It’s quite an interesting country and hence, we definitely recommend you to make a day trip when you are visiting Italy.

 Here is San Marino travel guide 


How to get there?

Nearest airport and a train station near San Marino is in Rimini.

You will find a tourist information center right outside the train station.

Just across the street you will find a bus stop to take a bus to San Marino. It takes around 45 minutes.


Where to stay?

There isn’t much to do in San Marino and it wouldn’t take more than a day. So we wouldn’t recommend you to stay there as accommodation is quite expensive due to limited availability.

It is recommended to stay in Rimini where you will find cheap accommodation with lots of options.

However, if you still want to spend some time, you can check out some options on or Airbnb websites.

  1. Greetings! I’ve been following your site for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Humble Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the excellent job!

  2. Wow! Some of the views here are breathtaking. Definitely looks like it’s worth a visit. I went to another European micro state, Liechtenstein, and enjoyed my experience there. Think I would enjoy this place even more – Guaita is love at first sight!

  3. I love your pictures, it seems like San Marino is a really charming little country and I love the architecture! Especially of Guaita, it’s like from a storybook!

  4. Hello,
    I did not know that San Marino is a country. The place is so picturesque! Just amazed by all the scenic views!
    I will surely visit it when I am in Italy 🙂

  5. I have to admit I didn’t know to much about San marino except for that they have pretty much the worst football team in the world haha! However this is a great little insight, that castle on-top of the hill looks immense – was it difficult to get up there?

    1. no it wasnt difficult at all..u walk a bit then u see something, u walk then u not that tough

  6. Wow, those views really are spectacular! Especially the one to Guaita! I’ve never been to San Marina, so hope I can make it there soon! And since it doesn’t take much time (just a day!), I think I might be able to squeeze it in on my next Europe trip! Thanks for the tips!

  7. That shot of Guaita is insanely beautiful! And wait you don’t even need a passport to enter the country!??!?!?!! Such a cute fairytale-like city. I’m definitely adding this to my bucket list!
