Aperitivo at Bar Piadeneria la Capanna.
This is the Cesta Tower (or the Second Tower).
Following checking out the Guaita Tower, I decided to take the plunge and stroll to the other two towers. Not to go inside the towers and inspect them but I believed that the stroll along the ramparts would do me great. Following all, the views would be spectacular I am confident.
And I was appropriate! The stroll to the two towers was definitely good and some thing I would very advise to any person going to. I managed to snag an Aperitivo along the way as nicely. Just fantastic as it was late in the afternoon.

Cesta from the Guaita Tower.
The stroll to the two towers is critical to be able to definitely practical experience and witness the breathtaking views of San Marino.
Cesta or the Second Tower sits on leading of the highest peak of Mount Titano. Equivalent to Guaita, the tower served briefly as prison quarters. This certain tower has a pretty dramatic and regal appear that I definitely like particularly if you view it from the rugged rampart’s measures, as you are approaching from Guaita.
Cesta just delivers that dramatic, enchanting, and medieval appear. There is this air of mystery behind all the architecture and history.
This image just spells drama all more than it.
There is an entrance charge to Cesta. I did not bother to go in although.
The Montale Tower (or Third Tower) on Mount Titano.
Montale or the Third Tower, on the other hand, is the smallest amongst the 3 and is not open to the public. This was also utilized as a prison I think. You know, right after you have observed so several forts and ruins in Europe, they all get started to appear the identical, haha.
This tower is the farthest on the route but nicely worth it mainly because I wanted to be active and I was on the lookout for superior views. I was definitely glad that I produced the stroll to the finish of the 3 tower route, it was definitely good.
The hike to the Montale Tower. From the ramparts, it goes by way of this stone pathway.
The Montale Tower up close and private.
One particular of the vacationers was busy photographing her dog. The dog is beautiful and was obedient to its owner. The dog superior or else it would fall down the rocks. Would not be a great sight I am confident.

It is Aperitivo time!
Then it was time for a drink in one particular of the several bar cafes on the peak with beautiful views. I was eyeing this bar referred to as Bar Piadeneria la Capanna with outside seating. This cafe sits in a fantastic place with wonderful views of the surroundings.
Right here I enjoyed some Aperitivo, which San Marino definitely has taken from the Italians. Sadly, just as I was in a position to take a table, the climate turned. The wind picked up and grey clouds hovered above us. Ahead of we knew it, rain poured down and the folks sitting outdoors had to take shelter.
So I moved a couple of tables away but nonetheless had a good view, so it did not impact me that a lot, except that it is a bit damp and colder. Nonetheless great for me to sit right here with my glass of wine when waiting for the showers to quit.

Ooops, the climate appears to turn to grey…. appears like it will rain…. time to get the shades up.
And time for me to move to a new table with a roof or shade above my head.
Are not the views wonderful?
