An Unforgettable Seaside Escape Awaits You in Rimini

Rimini is a coastal town located in the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. Its beach spans a long 15 kilometers along the Riviera del Sole of the Adriatic Sea. Traces of the old fishing quarter remain in the stone counters and in the cuisine of local restaurants. Within this seaside city are landmarks and architectural monuments that attest to the city's rich medieval and Renaissance history. You will find yourself strolling through Roman arches and cathedrals while enjoying Mediterranean climate. Rimini is also known as the hometown of preeminent filmmaker Federico Fellini. Fellini's legacy and the seaside charm of the city have kept the town popular among tourists. Hotels, bathing establishments, and nightclubs fill the coast of Rimini. Given the vastness of the coast, many Rimini hotels offer ocean views.

Rimini's Latin Roots Nestled Under Beachfront Views

Rimini went by the name Ariminum when it was first established as a Latin colony in 268 BC. Among the most impressive historical remains of the city is the Tiberius Bridge. The original foundations, dating from AD 21, still remain on this five-arched bridge. Cavour Square was the center of medieval life, and today, still holds the palaces used for the city's administration. Within Piazza Cavour is an old fish market, where you will see large marble tables and fountains previously used to rinse fish. In the Middle Ages, Byzantine, Lombard, and Papal rule led to the reign of the Malatesta family in 1334. Of the Malatesta lords, Sigismondo Pandolfo is the most renowned. His ambitious pursuits include calling on the Renaissance master Leon Battista Alberti to reconstruct a Gothic church into a mausoleum for himself and his lover, Isotta degli Atti. In the Temple Malatestiano, you will find their remains and other artifacts of their medieval love story. The City Museum (Museo della Città) houses archaeological finds from two surrounding Roman and Etruscan villas. Meanwhile, a museum dedicated to Federico Fellini boasts documents that demonstrate the inner workings of the accomplished Italian director. The memorabilia will appeal to film buffs. Lodging by the ocean is plentiful. Numerous Rimini hotels are open year-round due to the city's temperate climate and are within walking distance to the sea.
