San Marino

As one of the world’s smallest countries it is easy to treat San Marino as just another check mark on your list – but not so fast. It might be a quick visit but make sure to give it a chance as it has great views and a history of its own to be discovered.

Covid Updates

Since you cannot arrive without entering Italy first, you’ll need to know the entry requirements there. To get to San Marino they say that proof of vaccination is required. On the day I went (Sept 2021), I wasn’t asked to present anything. See below for Italy page. 

**Make sure to triple check entry requirements well before departure as protocols are constantly changing**

When to go

From April – early June and September – October you will enjoy warm weather and fewer crowds than the height of summer. Mid June – August the temps, crowds and prices are at their peak. Rimini will be packed in August as Italians get time off and head to the beach so if you’re using that as a base make sure to book well in advance.
