San Marino 8. San Marino’s only youth hotel

This is the youth hostel I stayed in San Marino. Its the one in the country, which is why its known as just Hostel San Marino. It also only had two other people staying there, as we are just after a first worldwide lockdown. The front is a restaurant which was not running. This is a pretty good place, clean and had a good kitchen you can use.

Strangely, there was a circus tent with some faint music playing. No signs or anything to show what it was used for.

This is about half way up Mount Titano, with you needing to go quite a bit further to get to the old city.

Going down the road a bit, looking to the right I can see the hostel, and ahead is back down the hill to Italy, a bit Catholic Cathedral, and the old city and castle looming in the distance.
