Thematic itinerary n. 1 of the Walk of the Titano
Entirely included in the area protected by UNESCO, it’s an excursion link to the historic centres of Borgo Maggiore and Città di San Marino, both also World Heritage Sites. It starts from Piazza Grande in Borgo Maggiore, where you can find excellent parking areas nearby, such as Campo della Fiera and Baldasserona.
