Interesting historical engravings
Sep 2021
Of course, the tower is charming and the view is lovely, but what I liked most was a little set of information signs inside. They explained how prisoners were treated (you can still see their graffiti on the walls of a cell) and how the defence structures were built over time. What I liked most was their indication of where there were stones that contained hints to who might have built the fortifications. After visiting, I could go and check the inner and outer walls for those engravings, and I found a few of them :).

Nice viewpoint

This is worth seeing if you are in San Marino. You can really get some great viewpoints from the tower. It does not take that much effort to reach.

Breathtaking view

Definitely, me and my friends co-incidentally had chosen an amazing day to visit San Marino because it was European Heritage Day and entry to all the places were free.

Charming ...

Most popular tower of all 3. Charming to look at and the best view is between towers 1 and 2. You also get a very nice scenic view down below.

Tower fortress
Jun 2019
I think this is the most interesting building in San Marino. The fortress located on the top of the Monte Titan. It looks stunning.

Very Interesting
Oct 2019
We took a guided tour up to the entrance of Guaita Fortress. It is the oldest and most famous tower on Mount Titano. This fortress was built in the 11th century. It does cost to go inside the fortress, but it is well worth the small price. Again it is a lot of uphill and/or stairs inside but the views are worth it. In one part, you can see the area that housed prisoners. If you are really adventuresome, you can climb a ladder and go through a small opening then outside for even better views.

Fascinating fortress
Oct 2019
The first thing to see when looking at Monte Titano (Titan Hill) are the beautiful fortresses of San Marino. It's a great experience walking through the narrow streets, squares and getting to the first fort, Guaita.The other two are De La Fratta ( Cesta ) and Montale. The Guaita fortress is the oldest of the three towers constructed on Monte Titano, and the most famous. It is surrounded by two circles of city walls, one of which can be walked. It was built in the 11th century and served briefly as a prison. It is one of the three towers depicted on both the national flag and coat of arms. From the top of the tower there is a beautiful view of the valley and Rimini. The pathway connecting the towers Guaita and Cesta is “Passo delle streghe” and means Passage of the Witches. The name is pretty apt in this fairytale scene but sinister because it’s where the hanging of witches took place. The Guaita fortress was rebuilt numerous times and reached its current form in the 15th century during the war fought between San Marino and the House of Malatesta. An interesting detail is that Giuseppe Garibaldi stayed here during his exile in San Marino.

A country within a country!
Oct 2019
We had never heard of the little country of San Marino, but we stayed there during our trip to Italy. Such a neat place. We parked in lot #7 and walked to Hotel Bellavista - a nice room with a great view. Don't forget to visit the tourist office while you're there - you can pay 5 Euros for a cool stamp and visa stamp from this country.
