San Marino

San Marino is a tiny landlocked republic totally surrounded by the Italian countryside. It lies centered on Monte Titano just a short 22 kilometers (15 miles) southwest of Rimini on the Adriatic coast. At just over 62 square kilometers (23 square miles), San Marino is the third smallest independent state in Europe. Only the Vatican and Monaco are smaller.

San Marino is also one of the oldest states in Europe, founded in 301 A. D. by a Christian stonemason named Marinus.
