The Area
San Marino Cup

San Marino is the oldest republic in the world:  A state of only 60 square km, a destination rich in history and tradition with its palaces, museums and castles whose medieval atmosphere attracts tourists.

Only 20 km away is the Adriatic city of Riccione, which is known all over the world for its tourism, hotel hospitality, shows and cultural events.

Its beach with a very fine sand and with the sunshine from daybreak to sunset is certainly one of the most important attractions that the city offers.

For those looking for alternatives to sunbathing, relaxing at the many bars and restaurants on the beach is a great choice not to be missed.

If you arrange an excursion that is not included in your itinerary and which involves parking and city entry fees, these fees need to be paid by your group.

Your 2nd Option is to use the tournament shuttle bus. You’ll be able to reach the soccer fields and the event venues (opening ceremony, tournament disco and prize giving ceremony) at a very special price!

The shuttle bus system only works as a transfer for the matches and tournament events, not for leisure or excursions.
