  • It's a historic place. It is the main entrance of the old San Marino: by day there is the vigilante in the garrison in front, who manages the traffic and makes people cross. There are two very famous bars at the side of the Gate: Bar Giulietti, which is mostly popular with young people (it's a pretty trendy place), and Bar Torretta, which is ideal for watching the game or playing cards (they also make charging sphonies). credit cards, as well as selling scratch cards). When there are holidays or special days they usually close the road, which is still accessible to pedestrians. Visiting the old town I do not recommend it to those who ride in a wheelchair or stroller, as it is all uphill (a bit steep) and there are no lifts. Possibly you could park above, for example in parking 6 or 7, but you should still choose the least steep "paths", for example passing through the crossbow quarry
