The vision of Guaita sitting high above the surrounding city represents one of the most recognizable images the country. Its tower, built in the 11th century and previously used as a prison, is one of three that can be seen on the national flag and the nation's coat of arms. Climb to the top for panoramic views of the region. The surrounding area is quite developed, offering restaurants and shops. With our custom trip planner, City of San Marino attractions like Guaita can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Very funny that there is such a old Republic is located in Italy. Beautiful old town, 3 beautiful towers and shops (leather, alcohol, guns, general tourist knick-knacks). It is cheaper than in Italy, you can fine parking (among other things in a parking garage. With the is you stand so in the old town). From the old centre you have a beautiful view to all sides. You can see the sea at Rimini.

  • The climb to the fortress and the view make this truly unique city, also the walk leads out from the bustle of shops that make trivial the tour in the historic center

  • We had to visit this tower as the children were a little tired. But while it's beautiful: total disorientation and everything is beautiful. Can be mounted at the top of the tower for the more adventurous and especially for people who do not suffer from Vertigo! Really to visit

  • One of the two towers that you can visit (there is a third too further south) and worth entering. It is quite large and you can walk along the battlements as well as entering the tower itself and climbing up the steep wooden stairs - there is also a section of three iron rungs in the wall to climb up to the middle level and this is the hardest part of the stairs (see photo). Great views from the top as far as the sea.
  • Very amazing place, entering costs for 1 tower approximately 5€, but near the tower from the left side ,there is space place to see the city from the top
  • Pretty fun to walk around and see the views. Worth the day trip to explore a few hours.
  • Very beautiful place. The architecture it's amazing and the views just stunning.
  • This castle is, needless to say, a must visit of San Marino. Picturesque, scenic views of the Apennines and an unbelievably clear panorama of the coastal plains that stretches all the way to the Adriatic Sea. On a clear day, you can easily see the churches of Rimini from atop the hill using the telescope. It's quite amazing to think how the earliest inhabitants decided to settle here and constructed such mesmerizing structures that stood for over 700 years.
