When going to another country, we automatically look for a plane ticket, but there are countries that cannot be reached by air.
For example, the Vatican is a state with an area of only 0.44 hectares located in the center of Rome, and it does not have its own airport – but it is easy to get there from the Italian capital.
The same applies to San Marino – the country has a little more than 33 thousand inhabitants, is completely surrounded by the territory of Italy and is only 15 km from the international airport “Rimini named after Federico Fellini”.
To visit Monaco, the second smallest country on the list, right after the Vatican (population 38.5 thousand), you will have to fly to the international airport “Nice Côte d’Azur”, and from there it is only 25 minutes away by car.
Interestingly, the third and fourth countries on this list, Nauru and Tuvalu, have their own airports, while the fifth and sixth do not.
We have already mentioned San Marino, and to get to Liechtenstein, you will have to fly to the airport “Altenrhein St. Gallen”, located 38 km from the capital.
The same goes for Andorra, a country only 40 km long – you can’t fly here. In the valley of the Pyrenees, between the mountain ranges, it would be difficult to find a place for a runway, so you have to travel through Spain or France – if you need to get to the capital of Andorra, it is most convenient to fly to the Spanish airport “Girona – Costa Brava”.
There are no airports in the Palestinian territories, but Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport is only 42 km from Bethlehem.
