Tourism in San Marino contributes approximately 2.2% of San Marino's GDP, with approximately 2 million tourists visiting in 2009.
Most tourists who visit San Marino are Italian, usually consisting of people who come to spend holidays in the Romagna riviera and decide to spend a half-day or at most a night in the country. Even though there are only a small number of non-Italian foreigners who visit the country, they still are vital to the Sammarinese economy.
The City of San Marino itself contains most attractions. The City is perched on a hill with regular parking areas for cars and buses. The City historic center itself is only a pedestrian zone that has mostly gift shops and food venues on both sides.
