    Rimini to San Marino by Bus

    by penumbra Written Oct 7, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bonelli Bus

    I always worry about taking buses in foreign countries, afraid that I’ll get on the wrong bus and get hopelessly lost. That said, the bus from Rimini to San Marino and back was very straight forward. The road outside the main train station is a dogleg that first passes along the station and then turns to head inland towards San Marino. The bus to San Marino, starts opposite the train station next to a small ticket shack. The shack only seems to be manned (womaned?) shortly before a bus departure. The tickets are 4 Euro per person one way. Buses leave every hour and a quarter, 8-10 times per day and make the journey in 50-60 minutes. There is a schedule on the Bonelli Bus company site, or the Rimini tourist site or available at the friendly Rimini tourist office beside the main train station.

    The left-side of the bus going to San Marino and the right-side returning will be in the sun. This means that side of the bus will be hotter, but it also affords some interesting views of San Marino if you feel inclined to take pictures from the bus.

    San Marino is NOT on the Italian Trenitalia system. Instead, you have to go to a nearby city like Rimini, and take a bus.

    Look at the official Tourist website for information on how to take a bus to San Marino from Rimini (see Tourism->Useful Information).

    It seems that there is a limited opportunity to use different means of public transport in the Republic. However, the taxi services available are fairly cheap and reliable; there is the cable way and the buses to and from Rimini.

    There is also a local bus service. See the link below for more information.

    The Fellini Airport Rimini-San Marino is 27km from the Republic; and you can either take a taxi which costs about 50€ to San Marino, or travel to the train station and get a bus. The schedules between both locations are very limited each day.

    Address: Via Flaminia 409 - 47924 Miramare di Rimini

    San Marino and Borgo Maggiore Stations - this was an enjoyable experience and certainly does get you from one part of the Republic to another very quickly. It departs every fifteen (15) minutes.

    Important Info for Getting to San Marino

    by rundoyle4 Written Feb 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tip is really more of a train/bus/taxi travel tip.

    To get to San Marino by train you need to get off at Rimini, Italy. There you can buy bus tickets for about 6.50 Euro roundtrip to San Marino. The bus comes about every 1.5-2 hours and is very punctual and will not wait even a few seconds. I missed it by so little that I could have touched the bus.

    The other option to get to San Marino from Rimini is by taxi. It cost me 40 Euro ($60 USD) and I was not happy to part witht he cash. The good news is it is faster than the bus.

    The bus takes an hour to go one way and a taxi was 30 minutes. It is about a 30km drive. Take that into consideration when planning your time and what train you are going to leave on.

    An easy way to get to San Marino is by bus from Rimini, a popular tourist city. The buses to San Marino leave in front of the railway station. You can buy tickets from the lady standing in the bus stop. The journey to from Rimini to San Marino lasts about 50 minutes and takes you easily to San Marino.
