Nice short walk from Guaita Tower, included in the day pass and includes an interesting museum of weapons. At the top of the tower you can get the best view of San Marino City and the Guaita Tower.

Great from outside for pics. But the museum inside is well worth the visit with the combined ticket.

I like the walk going towards the Cesta Tower. For those who are in wheelchairs, I think it would be difficult and even those who brought their trolley for their toddlers.The path has a magnificent view towards the tower from Guaita tower. The tower houses many old weapons dating back to middle ages. It is great that they have taken... More

Yes, it's a long walk up to the two towers, but it's a lovely bit of exercise and yes, you have to see both--you can skip the state museum and the church/museum (not sure about the palace--it was closed both days I was there, so I never saw inside). The second tower (Cesta) has a very interesting set of exhibits... More

We had plenty of time in San Marino so opted for the 7 euro ticket that gets entrance to all the public museums and castles towers, which is well worth it. Two towers are easily accessible from the very top city gate (car parks 6 or 7 are closest) involving a steady climb of about 200m up a cobbled path.... More

Definitely worth the visit. You can see the Guaita tower from here, and the view is comparable to Guaita. It's not very far from Guaita. The Cesta tower also has the weapons and armory museum which was interesting to see.

This castle is probably the best single thing to see in San Marino. Fantastic view out over the valley, all the way to the Adriatic, and on a clear day maybe even beyond that. Symbolic of San Marino. The collection of medieval weapons is excellent, from armor, pikes, and halberds to swords and early guns. It is well-labelled and organized.... More

First and second towers are must see attractions in San Marino (3rd can only be ween from outside). This is the second tower. It has a very interesting museum with very fascinating weapons. The details and ornaments on the old muskets/rifles are stunning. We did not really know what to expect of San Marino - but it blew us away... More
