Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2014

San Marino is a beautiful small city which must be visited as you go through Italy. It has so much to give and as you go through the top you would enjoy an amazing view, at aprox 200 metres, maybe more where you can see everything. And if you cross through, you must go to the Modern Guns Museum of San Marino!

Average at best, though locally, historically, interesting for the fortress for the period used. Excellent crossbow exhibit.

San Marino 2
TOWN THAT IS LIVING MUSEUM
By Zoran Slavic

On the first day tour in San Marino, during the tour of the famous Three towers, the Second tower we visited famous and popular „ The Museum of Ancient Arms”. The collection of ancient arms is composed of more than 1550 side arms, spears, fire, arms, bows, crossbows, tools and accessories dating back to different ages between the Middle Ages and the end of the 1800. For many exhibits, part of it was moved to the museum annex in Borgo Maggiore. The curiosity of this museum is the Colt Navy revolver, and that belonged to the revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi. This weapon was once Samuel Colt himself gave this brave Italian military leader.
Upon leaving the museum, and we coming down from ort, we started to look at this town quite differently.
When a visitor just a little dive into the urban landscape of these states, from among those miniature in Europe, it becomes clear that it is surrounded by buildings, facade, history, ceremonial conventions, all of which creates the impression of moving continuously through one, not imaginary, but only revived, Museum of Europe, the past. The capital, San Marino, is at first glance, an integral Museum former noble time. In addition, not just because of the existence of a multitude of museums, galleries and exhibitions in the history of free space. Everything looks like a museum display and the total ambient. Such a scenario of life events, such as scenery all to see, and stylistic appropriateness of all public life, of course, shape and define the most management of these states. Whether politically or economically. To make the most because of the tourists. Coming en masse to the city, anchored in the heart of Italy. A formal - an independent and sovereign! Nevertheless, do not overlook the innate tendency to residents of San Marino; in the strict tradition of fostering protect their centuries-long special. Which currently of globalization, it is very vulnerable. Therefore, in San Marino, a state project - the past, somewhat embellished approximated modern times just enough to make it more accessible and attractive, converted into an exclusive marketing product. Moreover, it has really works!
Probably because, tradition them to do so undertakes or force, the state let has what might larger countries - no. Television, newspapers, sports federations, diplomacy, theaters, schools, museums, galleries, equestrian competitions, philately, more cars than people, a police chief who is a stranger, lift, honorary consuls. Democracy. A lot of money which is still reluctant to talk.
We spent the night at hotel "Titano", who is visually draws on hill Monte Titano. With a powerful view of the surroundings. In addition, the rooms where there are real antiques from the past of European hotels.
