  • San Marino is really nice, with the kids being a bit uncomfortable due to the climbs but feasible. Even with bad weather you can visit.

  • With only €7 you get a multi ticket which also gives access to this first tower, and I must say that it is worth many more. The place is really well maintained, there are many signs with historical information. I recommend the climb on the tower to those who do not suffer from vertigo, otherwise it is already a problem facing the stairway to the ascent. In the path leading from the first to the second tower there are many places where you can eat in tranquility.

  • It is possible to have an incredible view of the surroundings in this tower, which has easier access in relation to the other two. It's pretty expensive in the driveway. There are several souvenir shops nearby. (in April 2018)

  • It’s an amazing stop to check out. The history is super cool to learn about and the set up will make you get your steps in. Bring walking shoes. I would say it isn’t really wheelchair accessible as it’s kept in its original building.
  • This gets five stars for the panoramic views alone! It's one hell of a fortress for sure with a deep history.
  • Torre Guaita gives you a wonderful view on San Marino down to the beaches of Rimini. Unfortunately, during the summer months it is a very crowded place and the numerous merchants trying to sell knick-knacks are ruining the atmosphere a bit. All-in-all it is a wonderful sight to visit but try to avoid the crowds.
  • I found this very cute salon at the last minute. The girls were professional, efficient, kind and the products used were name brand. I would definitely return.
  • The Republica of San Marino is guarded by three towers, Guaita is the main. You can visit them for a tax of 6.5 EUR. The placement, the way they put the stones on the rock is impresionant. The surrounding view is magnificent you can see all that moves in the field. It's better to go in spring when the crowds are away. Enjoy!
