Destination Information for San Marino
Only 61 square kilometres in size, San Marino is a microstate surrounded by north-central Italy. The Apennine Mountains run through this Republic, and the capital– the City of San Marino– is found on the ascent of the area’s highest point, Mount Titano. The city is built entirely of stone and there is just a single street leading up to Piazza della Libertà, where multiple cafes, restaurants and duty-free shops can be found.
Three fortresses are also situated atop the ridge of Mount Titano, the oldest of these being Rocca Guaita, which was originally built in the 11th Century. The arduous climb to reach this landmark will reward visitors with impressive views of the surrounding countryside. And at the very summit of the mountain, three towers provide more scenic views, along with a museum exhibiting thousands of ancient weapons.
Additional Health Risks Information for San Marino
Although the microstate of San Marino is surrounded entirely by Italy, it’s important to bear in mind that the European Health Insurance Card, or EHIC, is not valid here. Make sure you have adequate travel insurance that includes medical care and repatriation for your entire trip. There is no British Embassy in San Marino, so if you need help the closest is in Rome.
Crime in San Marino is extremely rare, although as with anywhere you should be aware of your personal safety and security at all times.
The emergency number in San Marino depends on the service you require. For an ambulance or medical services dial 118. 112/113 is for other emergency services, while 115 is the fire department and local police.
