Day 150 – Serravalle

We spent a second day exploring the mountain top citadel in slightly warmer temperatures, but with a bitter wind blowing. The mountain top has a ridge perhaps half a mile long with three towers linked by a precipitous walkway with bridges spanning vast chasms below. It was easy to understand how, with such fortification, San Marino has stood as an independent country for over 1,700 years.

late November is clearly a good time to visit. There are no crowds, and quite clearly the city is quite used to handling large numbers of rich tourists.
