We made a detour to San Marino while driving up to Bologna from Abruzzo. It was a gray November day, and we realized views wouldn't be great, but as we drove up into San Marino it got foggier and foggier, and once there, we were completely enshrouded in fog, and we had no views of the surrounding areas whatsoever.

To get to the top of the tower you go up a ladder and then a few metal 'rungs' and it is a bit of a squeeze (and I am relatively slim). But the views are worth it.

Only two of the three fortresses/towers at the peak of San Marino City are accessible. It is a steep climb to both but well worth the effort. The views across the state, to Rimini and the Adriatic, are just amazing There is a decent amount of historical information available within the fortresses and the cost of entry is very reasonable....

For a fan of medieval times, it was a must for me to visit the tower. You can walk along the wall inside the Guaita yard and enjoy a beautiful view over Adria (weather permitting) and Cesta.

This peak houses the first tower and is well worth a short visit. You can get a discounted pass to see five sights and museums in the city, making them all affordable. The tower is most interesting and you can get a great view over the surrounding area to the east, the city to the west and the second tower... More

A real challenge should you attempt to climb to the top of the tower. Stairs, ramps and more stairs, and then a metal rung ladder disappearing into a narrow slot and darkness above. Only for the "strong will" visitors and or the younger ones. Otherwise a very pleasant adventure to see the history of the occupants of the tower. English... More

The sight definitely worth the visit. Stunning views are opened for visitors from the top of the mountain. No need in special tracking stuff. Everything is easily accessible and it's a nice and pleasant walk you can't miss.

We visited San Marino whilst staying in the area. The ticket to climb both towers and see the museums is €10.50 with €1.50 returned if you give them the access card back at the end. Worth the money to climb the two towers and the museums offer a wide range of weapons and armour. Consider how they built these constructions... More

Let's face it, it's gorgeous, but the old city of San Marinois a bit like Disneyland, except with shops full of counterfeit products and weapons. The old castle is however the crowning glory of the place. The first tower is the closest to the city and the easiest to access (although I'm sure that the ladder leading to the top... More
