Included in the package is a day trip to the serene Republic of San Marino, a must-see destination for lovers of history—and for those who enjoy picturesque panoramas. One of the world’s smallest and oldest republics, San Marino technically isn't Italy, but it is surrounded by Italy’s Emilia-Romagna and Le Marche regions near the Adriatic Sea. This unique destination also offers great shopping opportunities.
