  • Location of the first tower or Sherman. Dates back to the early 15th century, protected by a drawbridge which one can glimpse the scroll channels. A well maintained and cared for even in flower beds. Interesting the internal path that allows you to go up to the top and from which it sweeps, weather permitting, on the plain of Ravenna. Path for everyone. Particular attention to climb through a ladder inside. Recent challenging steps, not to do solo.

  • The is tower one in San Marino, get a tourist card that allows you to visit five sites for €10 rather than €4 each. Great value. This tower can be climbed all the way to the very top. On a clear day, ...  more »

  • 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.
