We took the shuttle bus up to the castle, as I walk with a stick and even though the walking at the top of the castle is quite steep it was worth it. The audio guide was so informative that it made the the visit...More

Just excellent, lovely quite central square with a few bars, lovely & peaceful, in September anyway. You park well outside the town & can get an arranged shuttle bus into the square, then walk up to the castle. The walk up is fine. Great views...More

If you like castles and history with a breathaking view then this is the place to go. Entrance comes at a small fee and you have to walk a bit to get up there. Not to miss!

Perhaps because of the fascination with San Marino as the world's oldest republic, this little clifftop village seems overlooked in comparison but it's definitely a don't miss. You can drive right to the very top (dodging the endless cyclists as you go) and park up...More

This is a beautiful mountain village, with ancient churches, and a stunning monastery on a cliff-top. Unfortunately one would need to be very fit in order to access the monastery, but the village itself is well worth a visit
