Nice place to visit

The tower(s) in San Marino are certainly nice place to visit. Tower is a good place to take pictures of a view and all the towers are a main place to go visiting San Marino.

We didn't expect wonder here, but the tower is really nice. In contrary to the Guaita tower the Cesta tower has a weapons museum inside. The weapons go from swords to guns and everything in between. The view on the very top is also simply amazing. NOT for people who are scared of heights! Visited in late April. It was... More

In my opinion it is this tower where you have the best view and could take the best photos. Inside there is an exposition of historic weapons. Definitely worth visiting.

Not as exciting as the first tower, unless you are into medieval weapons. An impressive collection even for those not too interested. Worth climbing up just for the views. Get the ticket giving access to the 5 places of interest.

This is the second of the castles that can be accessed by the public and another tower to climb. But again it is worth the effort for the views.

Such an amazing view all around! The well preserved architecture and the sheer grandeur of concept of building this castle at this lofty mountain top....very picturesque.

This 2nd tower castle with bell was built at the end of the 11th C. and is situated at the highest peak of Mount Titano at 756 m above sea level. The Fratta as it's also called used to be a garrison for the Fortification Guards Division and had some prison cells as well. It was restored in 1930 to... More

We visited the tower during a foggy, misty day, which really added to the ambiance of the place. We took our time and looked around. One thing I didn't realize was that, after buying the card to get into the tower area, one can return the cards to get 1 Euro back from each card. Wish we would have done... More

I read the reviews on the attractions of San Marino before my visit to Italy and found this small but interesting country. Thanks to reviewers who recommended Cesta Tower here. The view from the top of the Tower was stunning - took many beautiful photos there with Guaita as the focus.

Similar in context to the Guaita but on a smaller scale. The added attraction here is a stunning little collection of historic armaments; pikes, bows, swords, muskets, pistols etc. It's a fascinating little collection with almost every variation on a theme you can think of. Outside you get the usual great views that you have everywhere in San Marino. Worth... More
