History[edit]

Until 1996, San Marino was part of the Italian telephone numbering plan, using the Italian area code 0549.[5] However, in that year, it adopted its own country code +378, although dialing arrangements between San Marino and Italy continued as before.[6] In 1998, as Italy switched to a closed dialing plan, San Marino incorporated the 0549 area code into its subscribers' numbers.[7]

The following numbers are equivalent:

  • "0549 xxx xxx": from Italy
  • "+378 xxx xxx": from rest of the world
  • "+39 0549 xxx xxx": from rest of the world, using the Italian country code
  • "+378 0549 xxx xxx": from rest of the world, using the San Marino country code and the Italian area code

Previously, the country code +295 had been allocated to San Marino by the International Telecommunication Union in the late 1980s.[8]
