As we would find on this trip many of the cities are built on a hill tops, most were walled cities, built to defend its residents. Once we left Italy and navigated into San Marino we began to climb, and went as far as we could drive toward the top of town, to the motels parking area.

View from the Hotel

This is where the van delivering the luggage to your room is nice, as we had a 1/3 mile uphill hike from the bike to our hotel, but out suitcase was waiting for us in the room. A quick shower and a couple of beers before dinner, than a fine five course dinner with some great wine, and again finished off with either Grappa or Limoncello. Then off for a good night sleep on a full stomach.

Next morning walked to the top and had to envy the view these workman had while doing their job.
