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

A really great tower, with views over the valley, and the first tower. From here are the most postcards taken. Very nicely arranged and well maintained. Get the multimuseo pass to save money.

The second tower has an amazing weapons museum with weapons from, crossbows to rifles. Most swords and muskets. Many hours can be spent there if you like guns. Don´t miss the view of the first tower. It is really amazing.

The tower(s) in San Marino are certainly nice place to visit. Tower is a good place to take pictures of a view and all the towers are a main place to go visiting San Marino.
