Today is to be the first of four days in a row, when we stay inside the fortress walls of an old city. This comes with a small challenge, because these sorts of cities have very narrow "roads" which are more like pathways and are unsuitable for traffic. So, today we park outside sity wall of San Marino and walk in 200-300 yards to our hotel.
Just as we arrived, these local drummers escorted us to our hotel. How nice.
Once checked in, it was time for some lunch in their terrace dining room overlooking to the western border of their contry and beyond into Italy. The border of San Marino is just the next ridgeline.
There are a series of three tower compounds along the top of the ridgeline, previously used for defensive purposes, as well as solitude for religious purposes. So, a bit of a climb for the view.
