Borgo Maggiore, San Marino

Borgo Maggiore, San Marino

the view of the main square in Borgo Maggiore from San Marino City

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 Emirates Air Line and the Thames Clippers (London)

Are you afraid of heights? If you are, please don’t read any further. On the other hand if you like cable cars and London then do continue reading. 🙂
There’s always something new to try out in London, whether it’s a new restaurant or a new play or a new tourist attraction/public transport. That’s one of the reasons that I love London so much. During my last visit to London in 2013 (yes, it’s been 2 years, the longest ever!) my best friend M. and I decided to go for a ride on the Emirates Air Line. It’s a cable car over the river Thames that connects the North Greenwich (the O2 arena for concerts and stuff) with Canary Wharf (sort of). Firstly, we had to get to the Emirates Royal Docks which included taking the tube from Central London and then a DLR from Canary Wharf to Royal Victoria station. And then we just crossed the road and we were in front of the cable car station.
