By train? In case there are trains in San Marino.
I believe the nearest railway station to San Marino is Rimini. There is a bus from there to/from S M.

The bus company is Bonelli. Their website is here:
I can't get the timetable links to work, but they may do for you. If they don't, the site will download a zipped pdf file of timetables, if you want.
There are some bus times on this site:
Thanks again! Do you haooen to know if they leave from the railway station?
From what I've read they seem to do so (at both ends).
But, hopefully, the bus pdf will tell you where the stops are as well as the times.

Travel Tips for San Marino
Tourist Visa - Visto Touristico
I called in to the tourist information office near to the Cableway station in San Marino Citta - and purchased a Tourist Visa.
For those of us within the European Union, we longer get a stamp within our passports if we travel within the EU or the EEA (European Economic Area).
I duly paid my 5€ and had the stamp and the official frank mark attached to my passport.
Giuseppe Garibaldi & Republic of San Marino (I&V)
Giuseppe Garibaldi was the most important figure of il Risorgimento – Italian Revival, and he is considered to be Italian national hero. After the fall of Roman Republic in 1849, Garibaldi found a safe refuge for himself and his troops in San Marino. In memory of this support, wish of San Marino not to be incorporated into the new Italian state was accepted.
In 1882, the very same year of Garibaldi's death, the first monument in the world dedicated to him was erected in San Marino. The Bust of Giuseppe Garibaldi, artwork of Stefano Galletti, the author of Statue of Liberty, can be seen at tiny Piazzetta Giuseppe Garibaldi inside San Marino city walls.
Another tribute to Garibaldi was payed in 2007 – for the 200th anniversary of Garibaldi's birth, San Marino issued 2 Euros commemorative coin with his portrait.
The inner walls, the most ancient ones, are characterised by a raised entrance and include the Bell Tower, the cells of the garrisons, subsequently used as prisons, and the donjon, the ancient watch post which was rebuilt during the second half of the 15th century.
Traces of subsequent restructurings are still visible: for example, a dagger sculptured on one of the ashlars near the bell tower and an inscription in gothic characters on the eastern tower have been recognised as symbols left by the Comacine Masters, who supervised the first restructuring in the 13th century, while the dates 1481 and 1475 engraved on the arch of the entrance door and on the lintel of a loophole respectively refer to the important restructuring works carried out in the last decades of the 15th century.
The Second Tower was built in the 1st half of the 13th century and was restored during the centuries.
It was built on the highest point of Mount Titano and today houses the Museum of Ancient Arms, covering a period from the Middle Age up to the early 20th century.
The so-called Witches’ Pass (Passo delle Streghe) connects the Guita and the Cesta.
The Three Towers of San Marino – Montale (I&V)
The Third Tower – Montale, the smallest of three towers depicted on the national flag and the coat of arms of San Marino was constructed in the 14th century, probably as a look-out tower and the protection of the south side of the Second Tower. Unlike the other two towers, the Third Tower is not open to the public.
