A trip to San Marino is incomplete without a ride on the Cable Car San Marino, or the Funivia as it’s known locally. Riding high amidst the clouds, the cable car offers a panoramic view of the stunning landscapes of this oldest republic in the world.

History

The operation of the cable car in San Marino kickstarted in 1959, replacing the previous electric tram. It offers a direct and convenient connection between the city of San Marino (on Mount Titan) and Borgo Maggiore down in the valley.

How to Get There

The cable car station is located in the historic city centre of San Marino. If arriving from outside the city, public transports like buses are available from Rimini and other nearby areas to the city of San Marino. The lower cable car station in Borgo Maggiore is a short and easy walk from the town’s bus station.

List of Attractions

  • Incredible Views: Get a bird’s eye view of the stunning countryside, the historical city centre, and the mighty Adriatic Sea.
  • San Marino Historic Centre: After enjoying the fun trip on the cable car, you can spend the day exploring the town, visiting museums, and indulging in local cuisine.
  • Borgo Maggiore Market: After descending via the cable car, you can explore the local market at Borgo Maggiore.

Ticket Information

The cable car ticket costs around €2.80 for a single ride and €4.50 for a return ride. Children under eight years old and disabled people can travel for free.

List of Tips for Visiting

  1. Timing is Key: The cable car runs from morning until late evening. However, the beautiful sunlight during the sunset makes that time the most visually rewarding.
  2. Avoid Rush Hours: The cable car can get crowded, particularly during summer and holiday seasons. Hence, it’s best to avoid these peak times.
  3. Dress Appropriate: It can get colder as you ascend, even in summer, so it’s advisable to have a warmer layer of clothing.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Camera: The breathtaking views offered from the cable car are truly picture-worthy.
  5. Enjoy the Ride: The cable car covers the distance in just two minutes. Enjoy every second of the swift ride and the panoramic views.
