I was 'apprehensive' after reading previous reviews about the safety of the towers. Pure nonsense! I climbed Cesta tower and it was perfectly safe. I also entered the first tower and walked to the third one, however Cesta was my favorite. The views are just amazing and it is possible to see the other towers from here. I recommend to... More

We stayed in San Marino for one night. Wish we had stayed longer. This is a beautiful city on top of a mountain which is separate from Italy. The walk from the towers are breathtaking and they have benches along the way to stop and take in the views. The towers are very well preserved. Highly recommend stopping here and... More

The second of the three towers located on top of the hill, it is very easy to get there and just follow the indications that lead to Cesta Tower. Walking down "passo delle streghe", means the path of witches, you are faced with this truly striking architectural spectacle, this tower inside contains a small museum of medieval weapons, perfectly original...

Two castles with towers to explore with wonderful views. Terrific for kids and teenagers may like medieval weapons. In one part of town adults were having a shooting contest with real, very powerful cross bows - their accuracy at 100 m was within 1 cm. Also good, 15-20 walk in the nature park by Tower 3.

The Towers are the best part of San Marino. Filled with medieval charm they offer spectacular views of the whole country, and they have neat exhibits to boot A reasonable admission (4 euros) gets you into both towers: well worth it

The Cesta tower, to me, has better views than the First Tower of the other Towers as well of the surrounding landscape. The Cesta tower and its walkways and underpasses is actually more of a maze than First Tower, which makes it more fun to visit! However, what the Second Tower lacks is any museum or historical context as to... More

If you go to San Marino without climbing to the top of the towers, you definitely missed the best part of San Marino. Three hundred and sixty degrees of unbelievable views!

san marino is the third smallest country in the world and driving there is a very beautiful scenic ride. take the train to rimini, italy where you can board a bus to san marino. the last stop is atop the mountain (very high hill) where the three towers are. you can trek to all three towers within 90 minutes or...

San Marino has two towers that can be visited together under one pass or as individuals (the third tower is closed to the public). Cesta is the second of the three towers in the city and is situated at the highest point in San Marino. When visiting, one can climb to the top of the tower for views over the... More
