The vision of Guaita sitting high above the surrounding city represents one of the most recognizable images the country. Its tower, built in the 11th century and previously used as a prison, is one of three that can be seen on the national flag and the nation's coat of arms. Climb to the top for panoramic views of the region. The surrounding area is quite developed, offering restaurants and shops. With our custom trip planner, City of San Marino attractions like Guaita can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Absolutely amazing views. You can see Rimini and the sea from the top and all of the surrounding valleys and mountains. What a beautiful country.

  • Great experience, magnificent views. Visit of historical center of San Marino was nice by itself, but visit of castle, or towers on top of hill was perfect and in my opinion "must see". Only negative was that in time of our visit, expositions which should have been(as per my understanding)in towers were empty. I am totaly recommending the visit.
  • Beautiful castle nestled on the top of San Marino, with awesome views of the surrounding lands, you can literally see Rimini from the tower, which is where we were staying , itself a 30 minute drive away. We purchased the €8 ticket which meant we could visit all three towers , although the third is free to visit anyway as you can't actually access it, but still worth the walk , which is of course beautiful! It's a small trek so you need to be able bodied plus the second tower has a steep ladder to gain access to the top. So yes San Marino well worth a visit!
