San Marino Borgo Maggiore Chiesa Di Sant Antimo
Italy

The Republic of San Marino was founded in 301 A.D. and is the most ancient European Republic. An enclave situated in central Italy, 15 km from the Romagna Riviera, the Republic sits at 700 meters above sea level on Mount Titano, a prominence which gives the first hint of the presence of the Central Apennine Mountains. Each year the Republic of San Marino is visited by millions of tourists from Italy and from all over the world. Most visitors stay in hotels on the nearby Riviera: Rimini, Riccione, Cattolica, Milano Marittima and Cesenatico.

San Marino is an extraordinary example of independence and intense international activity. Recognized by all the principal world organizations, the Republic of San Marino can boast an undisputed preeminence on themes regarding peace, freedom and the universal rights of man. Its legal and administrative systems form the basis of the most wide-spread form of government worldwide; namely, a democracy.

San Marino is well worth the visit! There are many attractions once you cross the border! Shopping, scenery, gastronomy, philately numismatics, celebrations, events, monuments, museums, works of art and typical tourist spots. Entering into the Country is simple since, for tourism purposes, no passports are required.

More About Italy

The name "Italy" is shrouded in mystery; some etymologists trace it to a Greek word meaning "the land of young cattle."Italy was fond of Jupiter and Mars from the very start, Jupiter for fatherly good luck and Mars for war!But it all began with Rome. Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus who were sons of Rhea and Mars.The twins were abandoned at birth out of a fear that they would grow up and later overthrow Amelius, usurper of their grandfather's rightful throne.Wrongful mis-doings most foul! Treachery and sabotage!! HOW would these two blessed infants make their way in such a world?As it turns out, the twins didn't have to make their way very far, because one of them killed the other one and then they weren't twins anymore. But that happens later.First they got rescued by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk and raised them as her own until they were discovered by the shepherd Faustulus.Faustulus fed them meat and bread and also raised them as his own until they were old enough to return to Amelius and hack him up as planned. They reinstated the grandfather Numitor to his rightful throne and went off to celebrate by starting a town of their own.They chose a hilly area where the mama wolf had saved them from certain death in the barren wilderness and began scouting locations.Romulus liked one hill. Remus liked another. The circle of crows like Romulus' hill, so Romulus killed Remus and named the town after himself. Thus Rome was born and Italy with it.Text by Steve Smith.
