Borgo Maggiore, San Marino

Borgo Maggiore, San Marino, Borgo Maggiore, San Marino (B)

Borgo Maggiore is one of the nine municipalities called castelli in the Republic of San Marino. It’s actually the second largest municipality in the republic and its main market town. Borgo Maggiore and San Marino historic centers together with Mount Titano are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2008.

We stayed in San Marino City and thoroughly explored it (still need to blog about it ) but I also visited Borgo Maggiore. You can admire the main square of Borgo Maggiore from the viewing point next to the cable car station in San Marino City. Besides, you actually drive through Borgo on your way to San Marino City high up on Mount Titano. However, I really enjoy cable car rides so I decided to go down to Borgo Maggiore for a short walk while my husband and the baby stayed in San Marino. Plus, it was nice to have some alone time.

The cable car which connects San Marino City to Borgo Maggiore was built in 1959 and since then it’s become a convenient form of public transport as well as a tourist attraction. The return ticket costs only € 4,50 and the ride lasts 2 minutes. Since I had the TuttoSanMarino Card which you get free if you stay at a hotel in San Marino I paid even less for my return ticket. There’s also a stone footpath from Borgo Maggiore to San Marino so if you’re fit enough and feel like walking uphill for hours you don’t need to use the cable car. ......
