4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
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. Use our City of San Marino itinerary planner to add Guaita and other attractions to your City of San Marino vacation plans.

  • A symbol of San Marino. Well preserved, does not demonstrate the Millennial age. A beautiful defensive fortress, visitable (surcharge). Very charming the climb to the Tower: cramped and awkward ladders that lead to the top where you can admire a magnificent panorama

  • La rocca Guaita is the most exciting among the architectures of San Marino for its size and its location that seems almost a challenge to nature wild and almost not buildable. But San Marino seems all a challenge.

  • 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.
  • Superb ! Beautiful ! You can take a pretty photo anywhere along the trails between the castles . Nice !
  • Beautiful view, and history of the place is truly remarkable, feels like you've travelled through time
  • It is really nice a beautiful
