The city of San Marino is quite tight, but the country has some countryside. Not as much as Andorra, but still some farms and open land.

You have a point there.

On the other hand, San Marino seems to be friendlier to non-EU Schengen visa holders (i.e. no confusion between single-entry or multiple-entry types).

I'd still love to visit Andorra someday but I would have to first check with our local Spanish and/or French embassies regarding that.

Dunno if much has changed.

But there was one pic of the Agip/Eni petrol/fuel station near the border.

Seems unchanged

There are no border checks at the border between Italy and San Marino. So although you exit/enter Schengen area, nobody checks this so I guess it's ok.

Let's have some recent pics of Sammarinese roads.
Taken by me in September 2014. Unfortunately, part of it in rain ...

Roads are in general of significantly better quality than in Italy. Obviously, you don't have a noteworthy transit traffic with loads of trucks ...

Part 1: From Borgo Maggiore to Faetano

1. Italian cities figure on almost every directional sign in San Marino


2.



3.



4.



5. There are some straight stretches!



6.



7.



8. Downtown Faetano



9. Heading toward town's end. Thereafter, you can exit to Italy, or head for Chiesanuova.

Part 7: From Borgo Maggiore to San Marino - the tourist destination of the country

1. Entering Borgo Maggiore castello, we will be just driving through it




2.




3. One of the many roundabouts intersecting the dual carriageway. The dual carriageway does not have any special status (like motor traffic way, expressway), and it has a speed limit of 50 km/h.




4.




5. Dual carriageway ends after this roundabout




6.




7.




8. ... and here we are!




9.




10.




11. Finally, a ZTL ahead, no entry by vehicle. There are sufficient parking lots in proximity (majority is tolled).

Some roads in San Marino City

1. Driving past the Italian Embassy (there are 3 embassies in San Marino: of Italy, the Holy See and SMOM).




2.




3.




4. Parking lots on the right could be used with a parking disc (1h free). This is about as close as one can get by car to the historic town center (centro storico), unless holding a special entry/parking permit.




5.

Some pics of the narrow, winding and very scenic road in the country's interior, leading from San Marino city westward toward Strada del Lavoro.

Photos still from Sep. 2014, I have not moved to San Marino!

1.



2.



3.



4. Now getting really rural ...



5.



6.



7.



8. T intersection with Strada del Lavoro ahead, IIRC. Strada de Lavoro is a "major" road running along the Western edge of the country.



9. On Strada del Lavoro - in the immediate proximity, you can leave for Italy, crossing the Torrente di San Marino.
