The bus left for Assisi, but they were going to make a stop at San Marino for lunch. San Marino, like Vatican city, is a separate country within Italy.
I love the views Marina captured!
San Marino has a beautiful view of the Apennine mountain range. This range is nicknamed the backbone of Italy because it runs down the center of the country.
San Marino was founded by a hermit named Marino. The hermit cured the husband of a very rich woman. The couple was so grateful that they gave the hermit Mount Titano. He was later sainted, so the mountain became San Marino. Today, San Marino has expanded from its original mountain.
While they were here, Marina bought batteries and they continued on their way to Assisi.
