Tired and hard work, Guaita must come to San Marino when climbing the top of the castle. The scenery here can be said to be the most spectacular place I have ever seen. Especially the hilltop castle, as long as you insist on climbing up, you will be able to see the beautiful scenery! ! ! When I first came, I found that this place was just pastoral scenery, what's so special? But until I saw the hilltop castle, my best friend told me, why don't you try to climb it? In fact, I refused at the time because the scenery here is really beautiful, but it's really super tall! Then I thought about it, since I’m here, let’s accept the challenge~ So my girlfriend gritted her teeth and climbed up. In fact, it feels very hard, but the surroundings are full of beautiful scenery, and the happiness will be halved, so climb up There is nothing particularly tired. When I climbed up, I found that I was really beautiful. The whole castle was supported by the woods. Then I stood here, overlooking the whole city of San Marino, and found that there is a super regular field here. It is really beautiful. The scenery from the heights is also Very good! TIPS1. Attraction address: Guaita2. Opening hours: here is open all day~~
This is worth seeing if you are in San Marino. You can really get some great viewpoints from the tower. It does not take that much effort to reach.
I loved it this tower From the second you get better picture looking at this one But this 1 st tower is bigger My hotel Rosa was some steps from this tower It closed some hours around 930 am to 6...
Definitely, me and my friends co-incidentally had chosen an amazing day to visit San Marino because it was European Heritage Day and entry to all the places were free.
Most popular tower of all 3. Charming to look at and the best view is between towers 1 and 2. You also get a very nice scenic view down below.
I think this is the most interesting building in San Marino. The fortress located on the top of the Monte Titan. It looks stunning.
