    The Views from San Marino

    by von.otter Updated Apr 6, 2011
    The View from San Marino, June 2010
    4 more images

    “The traveller will not forget to see the library, the museum, and the hospital, and will reserve as the crowning pleasure of his visit the magnificent view from the summit of the citadel, La Rocca. Words cannot convey an idea of its beauty and grandeur. A writer has well said that it alone will repay all the trouble of a journey to San Marino.”
    — from “The Republic of San Marino” 1880 by Charles Bruc, duca di Busignano

    The views from various points on the summit of Mount Titano speak for themselves.

    I think I prefer the more dramatic stormy scenes. At the start of the day the weather see-sawed between light rain and none. The precipitation was never sufficient to keep us from our self-appointed duties as tourists.

    Excellent views from the cable car station

    I drove on up to the entrance of San Marino - where there are excellent views over the countryside below depending on how much cloud cover is about as this day there was a lot of low lying cloud and fog but slowly was lifting - and walked on up finding myself at the cable car station where there were excellent views over villages below and the road that winds on up to the entrance to San Marino.

    At the same time it was useful to see where the cable car station is - which is also next to the Tourist Office which was handy to find so easily for maps and event info of San Marino and also very conveniently with public toilets there.

    The best way to enjoy the great views of Mount Titano. You can gey the tram at Borgo Maggiore station ending in the funivia station in the center of San Marino city. The tram is working the whole year from 7.00 to 20.00 pm (schedules changes in winter time) The price is Euro 3.20 (return).

    Rocks

    Between the second and third towers, you will find a couple of small pathes leading down. From there, you can have a look at some of the rock formations of Monte Titano. When I was therre, there were also some people doing some rock-climbing. When you chose to take a small walk on these pathes, please be careful. Some places are secured while some are not.

    View from Monte Titano

    View from Monte Titano
    1 more image

    Monte Titano, the rock on which San Marino’s capital, San Marino, was built, is the highest point in the area. So you can enjoy a beautiful view on the surrounding landscape from almost every point. I would like to recommend the viewpoints at the eastern side of Monte Titano. The views from the towers, especially from the second, are worth the whole trip. But there are also some place between the towers where you can see the rocks of Monte Titano as well as the Adriatic coast. (See also my tip about the rocks)

    View from the edge

    by DSwede Written Jan 13, 2006
    First Tower to Second

    I've seen many castles and old european areas, but San Marino, perched on the edge of the cliffs adds a breathtaking viewpoint. It is quite easy to walk from the First Tower, to the Second to the Third. The views will be incredible of both the old city of San Marino, as well as the Italian valley below.

    View of Borgo Maggiore

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the view of Borgo Maggiore from the small square beside the cable car station in San Marino. You can see the other cable car station and also the car park (in the middle lined with trees) and the main square of Borgo Maggiore. It's best to park here (although there's not that many spaces) and take the cable car up into San Marino. In the distance you can see the main dual-carriageway road that snakes it's way into San Marino from Rimini and the A14 autostrada.

    Green spaces

    by Azhut Updated Jul 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the ascent to the rocca you will note a huge number of green spaces, parks and trees in general. You will also note, with a bit of attention, that there also are some sculptures in these areas. San Marino is literally covered by original sculptures made of bronze. You will probably see the one called "The dancer" (by Crocetti), "The hair-dresser" (by Greco) and not far from there "The bees" (by Bini). All the sculptures stand at the main entrance of Cava dei Balestrieri.

    The walls

    by Azhut Updated Jul 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From La Rocca you can take a panoramic stroll across to the Second Tower, sometimes known as Cesta or Fratta. Built at an elevation of 756m (2480ft) on Mount Titano, it's the highest-standing of the fortresses, and dates back to the 13th century. It mirrors the pentagonal shape of La Rocca and, like that tower, was also used as a prison.

    Unfortunately this is the only photo I have from my short stay in San Marino. As you can see, we came there on a very foggy day (just my luck) So, I'll just have to go back to be able to provide this side with the clear, beautiful view I know you normally can see from this height.
    But, as I want my page to be authentic, I don't want to use other pictures than the one I shot, and the postcards I bought at the time I visited.

    Strolling along the narrow alleys. Maybe take a stop at a cafe or ice cream bar (I recommend this since the Italien ice cream is wounderful). Take a look inside the castle and on the views you get over the valley down below.
    Since San Marino is located on a small mountain you get a nice view over the valley below.
