Geography, Weather, & Wildlife of San Marino
San Marino from above
San Marino is one of the world's smallest countries
and is entirely surrounded by Italy. It is located about half
way between Rome and Venice, Italy, near (but not on) the Adriatic Sea coast.
Geographically, San Marino is a mountain top in
Italy (Mt. Titano). The entire country is highly elevated and a number of
small rivers begin in these mountains.
San Marino has seasonal variations, but no true meteorological
variations within the country itself due to its small size (unless you climb to
the top of Mt. Titano). Winters tend to hover just above freezing (32° F (0° C)),
but can fall to as low as 20° F (-7° C) at night and receive snow. Summers tend
to get daily highs of about 80° F (27° C) with nights dipping down to about 65°
F (19° C).
