One of the smallest countries in the world

A country within Italy, full of culture and a neat castle to see. If in the area I recommend going and seeing it.

My husband and I debated whether or not to pay the entrance fee for this attraction. It was worth it. We were in San Marino on a rainy day and while inside the tower you're protected from the rain, you'll be outside walking around the building so be prepared. The views were unbelievably spectacular. While I'm not a fan of... More

We walked around and about the tower. Great views of the city below and the surrounding mountainside. Sometimes the clouds surrounded us. There were lots of shops on the way to the tower but not much to see in the tower itself.

The views were breath taking, and well worth seeing. Pack a sturdy pair of shoes with good grip as the paths (stone) become very slippery when wet

Doesn't take too long to visit all the tower. The views were amazing. Few little areas of shade. Worth paying the entrance fee but based on this tower we didn't bother visiting the others.

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
