  • Surely the Guaita or the first tower is the most characteristic and beautiful monument of San Marino, with its grandeur overlooks the entire city and the landscape below, reaching down to the sea, and for this both from its top (accessible via an initial and subsequent large impractical and easy scale) that by the same Fort walls you can make amazing shots and admire beautiful landscapes as well as have a particular view on the second tower (Cesta) and on the same San Marino. Accessible with a note of only 4.50 € or with the much cheaper San Marino card that only 10.50 includes admission to 2 towers (the third closed because closed because unsafe) Palazzo Pubblico and pinacoteca del museo di San Francesco. Highly recommended attraction and suitable for everyone, truly magical catapult with its magical atmosphere back in time. Gorgeous.

  • The Guaita is one of the three towers of San Marino. The structure itself is breathtaking, the views from all corners are spectacular. Ticket to visit him in August one given the medieval days

  • One of the three towers built on Mount Titano, with a privileged view of San Marino and surroundings. The price is affordable

  • 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.
