  • The towers of Mount Titano are all full of charm but the Guaita is undoubtedly the one that brings you back in time. Worth visiting.

  • visiting San marino stumbled in Guaite, ancient fortresses of Defense ... the Council visit, the price is low and on a sunny day you can spend a few hours and maybe learn something about the social life of ancient San marino.

  • After a short walk will get you to this magnificent Tower. The atmosphere is very nice and great to take pictures both with the Tower in the background with the view of the surrounding Valley.

  • San Marino , one of the oldest Republic nations and 5th smallest country in the world is a nice place for a weekend getaway. A train journey to Rimini from Ancona followed by a short bus journey to this hilly country takes 3 hours. The historical monuments are picturesque including the heritage sites. A good place to spend 1-2 days.
  • Beautiful views to sunset and San Marino city, great atmosphere, good shopping. Reaching the castle itself could be problematic with private car: sometimes police blocks roads for non-residents. Highly recommended leave car on parking and use cable-railway. Alternatively you can walk up, there are public lifts along the way. But it is rather challenging.
  • Beautiful view, and history of the place is truly remarkable, feels like you've travelled through time
  • Buy a ticket for both towers get a discount, 227 steps approx each tower
  • This is a very nice historical place with a stunning view.
