So I'm off... leaving the overdeveloped coastland behind, and into the hill country where I soon spot a hilltop castle... then another... Yep. Don't look at the road or the power lines and you might be able to convince yourself that this is 1413 rather ...

I’m not sure what you’d call the style-- It’s like polka meets flamenco meets heavy metal… ...
... tiny country of San Marino. At a mere 62 square kilometers, the hike is going to have to spill into Italy to reach the 100 kilometer minimum... which won't be a problem. Rimini is a cool city too and I'm glad to include it in my Superhike. Today I only have a few hours left of daylight, so there's not point in heading up to San Marino today. Instead I'm going to hop on a train up the coast and wander through a couple of beach towns. Beach towns on ...
