San Marino holiday rentals – stay in a country surrounded by Italian charm
San Marino is a little gem. This micro-state is bordered by Italy on all sides, and is in close proximity to the Emilia-Romana region, and is also bordered by Le Marche. The official language is Italian. Similar to the Marche, the landscape here is exceptionally beautiful, composed mostly of rolling hils and colourful scenery, with green fields and corn fields characterising the countryside. A holiday letting in San Marino gives visitors the chance to take in this gorgeous setting. Like other micro-states such as Andorra or Monaco, this beautiful tourist destination is known for being a tax haven and is one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
Recommended things to see when staying in a San Marino holiday home
The extraordinary national beauty can be appreciated throughout the state, but the city of San Marino offers the main tourist attractions. Wherever your San Marino holiday letting is, the capital will be within easy reach. The state has a long and intriguing history, which is manifested above all in the ancient architecture and ruins dotted around. Highlights include the Fortress of Guaita. From the top of this tower, built in the 11th century, visitory can enjoy some spectacular views over the city. There are scores of other stunning ancient edifices throughout San Marino.
Museums, churches and relaxation
Il mondo di Leonardo is an absolute must. This museum gives tourists an insight into one of the greatest minds in human history, Leonardo da Vinci. For more information about San Marino and its history, the State Museum can also be found in the capital. Another interesting and completely different museum is the Museo della Tortura - the museum of torture.
People staying in a holiday rental in San Marino will have the advantage of being surrounded by marvellous buildings.

One of the nicest things to do in the capital city is to simply walk around and take in the sights. With impressive architecture, as well as shops and cafes, it's worth just taking a stroll around the city or a cafe in Piazza della Liberta. A holiday in this unique country promises to be a memorable and inspirational experience.
