This was so worth it. We learnt so much from Sarah in just 90 minutes. She was knowledgable, funny, kind, and was able to answer all of our questions. Highly recommend this tour, especially if you don’t have much time in San Marino City

Sara found the perfect balance between past and present during the tour. No matter what was asked - she knew the answer.

This was a great guided tour and in 1.5 hours, I learned a lot about San Marino from my guide, Melissa

Excellent guided tour conducted by Sara through the center of San Marino

A visit beyond expectations. A fascinating place, out of the ordinary.
