Go for a stroll

A stroll to the top is highly recommended. Safe and fun for kids also. Stop for an ice cream and you'll have happy kids.

This stands out as one of those special moments in life. A special place with so much history, appeal and character. We were lucky enough to stay in the castle overnight and in the morning the fog gave it a special feel as did exploring all the nooks and crannies....this place is a must.

This is the second tower of the three towers San Marino. This tower has great views. But you should really see the views from the first tower on top o of the hill. The Cesta tower houses the Museum of Archaic Arms. So if you are into that, go check it out.

The upper tower is certainly worth climbing just comfy shoes are needed, otherwayz may be very tough! As a bonus you get nice plastic entry tickets with pictures of the Early Renaissance.

The steep walk up to Cesta tower is well worth it,once inside you can climb even further to the top of the tower from where you have fantastic views of the country side below,the tower houses a wonderful arms museum which is well worth a visit.

There is a museum with medieval weapons inside the Tower. But this Tower is worth visiting for everybody, since the view from the Tower is just marvelous! Since it is situated at the top of the mountain, you can have a beautiful view over the First and the Third Tower, and everything around you!

Combined with a tour of the first tower, this is worth a short visit. It houses the armoury and weapons museum, but not much is in English. It is interesting for a short visit. Or a long one of you are into medieval weapons. Good views from the walls, but a steep climb from the city.

We visited three of the four "castles" and each are worth the visit. The views from the towers are simply amazing

This is a really exciting and interesting place in San Marino. So many stairs and escalators take us higher and higher. The tower has some small boutiques and galleries.

This towers exact date of construction is unclear however it is believed to be in the first half of the 13th century. It is on the highest point on Mount Titano and also on the outer most edge. This houses a very good military museum dating from the middle ages to 1900. This has a nice lower area to walk... More
