“Nice Plaza”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you go to San Marino, you cannot miss the plaza. It is right in the center of town. Every half hour there is the changing of the guard which is noting special.

“Lowly square - got to see a wedding!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Was a picturesque square...'libertas' is a key motto for San Marino and on the walls you can see the crest. I happened to run into a wedding just ending and the bride and groom were coming out to well wishes..that was beautiful in such a setting. There is a nice cafe so stop and have a drink end enjoy the scene.

“my god get your hiking boots on & elbows out!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

packed solid from 10am to 4pm but worth the visit. as we are staying here for 2 weeks we re visited off peak & the experience was much better. try to avoid the hoards & you will see much more. the 2nd visit we had an early eveing meal (restaurant almost empty as Italians eat much later than the UK) on a terrace overlooking the valley at the top of San Marino City. It was spectacular & the cost reasonable (£20pp for 2 courses & wine/beer)
If you go during th epeak times get your elbows ready to push (the old ladies are the worst!!) it's steep, hot & crowded. trying to get a vantage point to watch the changing of the guard is harder than getting a seat to the moon. go later in the day at 5.30 much better all round & less stressful for all.
