According to the town’s tourist brochure (reproducing a quotation from Umberto Eco), this is the most beautiful city of the entire Italy! Who could resist the temptation of visiting this highly recommended place? It is located in a distance of 100 km from Rimini and although Eco’s praise is a bit overstated, San Leo once known as Montefeltro deserves at least a half-day visit. Besides it has in the past also been capital of Italy!
As we had little time at our disposal before leaving Italy, we decided to spend it in the best possible way. The sights around Rimini Fiera (where the convention we had attended took place) were plentiful but the choice wasn’t that hard. We headed to San Marino hoping to discover something different and it was indeed unique although not for the obvious reasons!
City of a hundred towers, the capital of the kingdom of Italy, home to one of the oldest Italian universities to which are related prestigious names such as Alessandro Volta, Carlo Rubbia, Ugo Foscolo, Carlo Goldoni. For centuries the center of historical events, Pavia is now a relatively quiet, young and little visited city, despite being located only 30 kilometers from Milan.
