We entered a new country today!! The Republic of San Marino!! It's the third smallest country in the World; next to the Vatican and Monaco. It is a mountainous micro-state surrounded by north-central Italy. Its capital, also named San Marino, is a medieval walled town with narrow cobblestone streets. Its Three Towers, castle-like citadels dating to the 11th century, sit atop the mountain peak.
As I think I have mentioned, we are travelling with a company called Grand Circle Cruise Line: the leader in enriching cultural experiences since 1958. They tell us to embrace the unexpected. Well, they have certainly given us experiences we didn't expect!!
We got to experience a major flood in Venice!
We got a day of sunshine in Ravenna!
Today, we got heavy rain in San Marino!
Tomorrow, we can expect thunder storms in Urbino!
We're with a great group of people; 22 in our group and 20 in the other group. We've all had a great time. We haven't heard any complaints.
We are called travelers, not tourists!!
