This tiny landlocked republic has no apparent borders to separate it from its powerful neighbour, yet it is fiercely independent -- it prints its own stamps, mints its own euros, and stamps passports on presentation (and payment) at the tourist office. It also boasts an imposing and extravagant town hall (Palazzo Publico), whose marvellously costumed republican "army"'s sole purpose appears to be the changing of the guard.

It's not a tourist destination. Many don't even know it exists. But San Marino, the world's oldest republic, is worth a visit if you are in the area.
