San Marino – Of the world’s 196 independent countries, San Marino is the fifth smallest and – arguably – the most curious. How it exists at all is something of an enigma. A sole survivor of Italy’s once powerful city-state network, this landlocked micro-nation clung on long after the more powerful kingdoms of Genoa and Venice folded. And still it clings, secure in its status as the world’s oldest surviving sovereign state.
Florence – Return time and again and you still won’t see it all. Stand on a bridge over the Arno river several times in a day and the light, mood and view changes every time. Surprisingly small as it is, this riverside city looms large on the world’s ‘must-sees’ list. Cradle of the Renaissance and of tourist masses that flock here to feast on world-class art, Florence (Firenze) is magnetic, romantic and busy.
