Located high on a hill and lacking its own major airport, San Marino isn’t the most accessible country in Europe. But if you know how to get to San Marino, it is a lot easier to make travel arrangements.
Whether you’re coming from inside or outside of Italy, the best airports for San Marino are Ancona (Ancona-Falconara Airport – AOI), Bologna (Guglielmo Marconi Airport – BLQ), Forli (Luigi Ridolfi Airport – FRL), and Rimini (called Federico Fellini Airport – RMI).
You can find out more about which is the best for you here. Some are better for international visitors, while others are better if you are arriving on a domestic flight.
Whatever airport you choose, it is easy to get from there to San Marino. When you land, you can either rent a car and drive to San Marino or take a bus to the main train station, then board a train to Rimini, where you can take a bus to San Marino (information on the bus can be found here).
No matter which of the above options you choose to get to San Marino, the country’s charm, history, and beauty will make it worth the visit.
