You will find the right hotel in San Marino: there is for example the Grand Hotel San Marino – every sight is in walking distance.
- One of the best-known markets in San Marino
The community developed in the 12th century and was first a Mercatale – a marketplace. And still, it is one of the most important commercial centres in San Marino: Piazza Grande is home to this famous market every Thursday.
Piazza Grande is also the main sight of the town: impressive palace dating from the 17th century, its Bell Tower higher than an any building in town, Chiesa del Suffragio. At the motorway exit you find the modern Santuario della Beata Vergine della Consolazione , designed by Giacomo Michelucci in 1958. The castle district, the historic centre of San Marino as well as Monte TItano have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.
Monte Titano is guarded by the fortresses of Guaita, Cesta and Montale.
Associated to the Centro Naturalistico Sammarinese, the Museum Natural History offers its visitors the opportunity to explore the area of San Marino more closely. Fife dioramas display the landscape of San Marino regarding flora, fauna, lebensraum, geology, and palaeontology - a plastic presentation, scale 1:8000. The museum also accommodates a large collection of various European types of birds, amphibians, fish, reptiles, mammals, fossils, and mineral as well as a terrarium and an aquarium. The Museum of Natural History is in Borgo Maggiore at Monte Titano and can be reached via cable car or by foot along Costa dell’Arnella.
