San Marino is a must-see shopping destination, and there are all kinds of stores for all “shopping addicts.” Shopping malls and outlets can be found mostly along the highway from Rimini to San Marino City, and markets and beautiful shops of typical products can be found in the historic center and in the 9 municipalities.
Shopping in San Marino can also be cheaper than in Italy thanks to a lighter tax lever with lower taxes on goods and services.
What to buy in San Marino
Among the most sought-after products are: clothing, footwear, perfumes and cosmetics, electronics, and musical instruments. In outlets it is often possible to find branded clothing and shoes at discounted prices, samples of new collections and sales earlier than in Italy.
In the historic center of San Marino there are numerous stores and workshops with local and traditional San Marino products. Hand-painted ceramics, art objects worked in iron, wood and precious materials, lace, embroidery and canvas prints, coins and stamps. But also gastronomy, including tasty confectionery productions such as the “Tre Monti”, the typical San Marino dessert.
Since 1995, the Republic of San Marino has established the Marchio di Origine e Tipicità (Mark of Origin and Typicality) to protect, enhance and promote artistic and traditional production; the mark is a guarantee for those who buy that the product has been handcrafted in the Republic of San Marino.
