A wonderful place for overviewing the mountains around San Marino, also a great place for enjoying the sunset moment. The wine shop next to the palazzo is nice, we bought two tasty sweet wines, one is pistacchio and one is chocolate berry. Walking just a minute from there will reach the cable car station. Surely this is a must go... More

It's not really spectacular, but worth a visit since your other options are a vampire museum and some other weird museums. You can visit the council chamber of San Marino. There are two nice paintings in there. During the season there is the change of guards.

The square is lovely, but no matter the architecture or the fact that you are standing in the mideaval capital of one of the smallest countries in the world, you could be.standing on a rubbish tip and the cloudline view afforded to you 700metres up, looking over the Rimmini coast would make it worth it. This little country is stunning... More

Don't look at it only from the outside, in the days when the Council isn't working you can go inside too: admire the architecture and the Council Hall with the impressive fresco, it's worth a visit! If the weather is good, there's a stunning view of the hills around from Liberty Place (which is in front of the Palace).

We erre there for the change of guards, which was pretty cool. When we went in there was an exhibit about refugees and migrants. The pictures and statistics were truly interesting. It is also worth the stop to visit the congress room upstairs. It's incredible!

This is the government and town centre, with a large open square in the middle . Bordered with a number of restaurants , large fountain where everyone takes a picture and fancy dressed guards who are awfully patient about taking more pictures . Everyone seems to start here, and also end their day as the restaurants serve cocktails on their... More

The Plazzo Publblico is the heart of the San Maranese democracy. It is the parliament building for the tiny republic. The day we were there they had some sort of mock parlaiment with youth. They also have the ceremonial guard and of course the changing of the guards and much to see and explore inside the working heart of the... More
