How to get to the historic center of San Marino

The Bonelli bus service stops in the P1 BUS parking lot (see map) located adjacent to the walls of the historic center and the San Francesco Gate from which you can access the town by foot.

If arriving by car, it is possible to park in various paid parking lots; we recommend reaching the P11 parking lot and taking the cable car.

From June to September there is also the By Train San Marino service, with a distinctive blue-white train that runs from the historic center of Borgo Maggiore to the cable car stop.
