Flights to San Marino

image of San MarinoOfficially named the Most Serene Republic of San Marino this tiny country is completely surrounded by Italy, and it’s the third smallest nation in Europe. San Marino is the oldest recorded republic and sovereign state in the world and has a thriving tourism sector despite its small size.

Because of its small size there are no international flights to San Marino directly as the country actually has no airports. There are several options for getting a flight to San Marino’s neighbouring country, Italy, though. The closest airport is Frederico Fellini International Airport (airport code: RMI) in Rimini, and from there you can take a bus or drive into San Marino. From South Africa, flights would involve one or two connections: South African Airways offers a flight from Johannesburg via Munich to Rimini, or take a two stop flight with airlines including TAP Air Portugal via Lisbon and Munich, Virgin Atlantic via London and Munich, or British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France, or Ethiopian Airlines.

The Tourist Attractions of San Marino:

Despite its small size San Marino is a beautiful country with some great attractions. It’s only 24 square miles in area, so larger than only the Vatican and Monaco, but it has lovely scenery and an attractive capital.

City of San Marino
The capital of the country is also named San Marino, but often called the City of San Marino to avoid confusion with the rest of the country. It’s situated roughly centrally within San Marino and is the most popular attraction. It’s located on the slopes of Monte Titano so makes use of its hilly position with historic fortresses commanding fantastic views.

The historic centre is actually on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list for its cultural importance. The main sights include the Three Towers of San Marino that are set on the three peaks of Monte Titano. These are not only great to look at from afar but interesting attractions with great views over the city of San Marino and surrounding countryside. The First Tower, called Guaita, is the oldest and most famous and was constructed in the 11th century. This was followed by Cesta in the 13th century, and Montale in the 14th century, however the third is not open to the public.

You can take an aerial tramway from the city up to Monte Titano, giving you excellent views as you climb.

When not visiting the towers many of the 3 million visitors who come to San Marino every year simply enjoy strolling around the old city streets. These narrow, cobbled streets are winding and beg for exploration, often revealing lovely features and many shops, caf├ęs and restaurants.

Look out for the town hall, named Palazzo Pubblico as this striking building is a top landmark in San Marino. It was built in the late 1800’s and was extensively restored in recent years.

When Should You Visit?:

San Marino has a generally Mediterranean climate though winters can be cooler than some other countries with a Mediterranean climate. Summers are the most popular time to visit when temperatures are warm and there is little rainfall.
