The first of the Three Towers, Guaita simply cannot be missed! I paid for the San Marino Pass which was one price for many different sites in the city, which saved so much time. The views from magnificent old fortress cannot be beat! It is cool to walk around the old castle, through the grounds, the old church, and even... More

This is a really cool excursion, and the good thing is you can get a pass that allows you access to all towers and museums. The tower is really steep to climb, but the views of the valley once outside are amazing, it feels like a scene of Game of Thrones (dragons missing unfortunately) you can take some excellent panoramic...

This is the first tower of the three towers San Marino has and which is the main attraction of the city. For us it was the last, cause we went uphill. The first tower is very empty. Not much on display here. But the views are magnificent. The second tower, Cesta Castle (also called Fratta), same views, but from a... More

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. Even... More

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
