  • San Marino is really nice, with the kids being a bit uncomfortable due to the climbs but feasible. Even with bad weather you can visit.

  • With only €7 you get a multi ticket which also gives access to this first tower, and I must say that it is worth many more. The place is really well maintained, there are many signs with historical information. I recommend the climb on the tower to those who do not suffer from vertigo, otherwise it is already a problem facing the stairway to the ascent. In the path leading from the first to the second tower there are many places where you can eat in tranquility.

  • It’s an amazing stop to check out. The history is super cool to learn about and the set up will make you get your steps in. Bring walking shoes. I would say it isn’t really wheelchair accessible as it’s kept in its original building.
  • This gets five stars for the panoramic views alone! It's one hell of a fortress for sure with a deep history.
