5. San Marino, San Marino (749? m, it seems courts are not on Monte Titano :))

you're absolutely right :D

for those who have never gone to San Marino, it's like a ridiculously-little piece of hills and mountains with four or five extremely minuscule villages. but if you enter S.Marino (it takes two minutes to go from one side to the opposite one, you enter in Romagna and go out in Marche regions) you can see hundreds of fat guys driving back and forth with Ferraris, Porsche, BMWs and so on.

This only to explain how San Marino is not a state but has Montecarlo-like privileges:lol:; by the way, the San Marino Challenger takes place in the Murata village (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murata_(San_Marino)), 500 metres above sea level (the center is called "centro tennis Cassa di Risparmio")

Thanks for info, friend :) So, I will corect numbers for San Marino.
I must say all numers were taken from Wikipedia and, of course, sometimes it's difficult to understand what they mean, the highest/average/the lowest altitude in the venue. In case of San Marino it was clear that the official San Marino elevation and the Monte Titano altitude are the same :)

P.S.: I remember I've already answer you but my reply disapeared :( Or am I a little crasy? :)

The courts altitude in Romanian Brasov give rise to similar question: what is the real altitude of courts ?

I visited to this picturesque town a couple times and remember the high hill/mountain near the downtown:

(the picture was made from the hill top)

So, are the official 600 meters for this hill or for the downtown? I hope probably Romanian fans will help us to answer
