Rimini and surroundings

Rimini: the largest seaside resort on the mid-Adriatic coast

Cafès, Bars, Restaurants, night Clubs, Entertainment parks and its famous long beach, equipped with all kinds of services!

Rimini is not just entertainment for grown-ups and little ones.

There is a wonderful inland to be explored: villages rich in history and art, wine cellars where to taste fine wine and typical dishes from the Romagna traditional cuisine, oil mills where the world-renowned extra-virgin olive oil is produced, entertaining and at the same time educational theme parks, such as Italia in Miniatura (Italy in miniature), Oltremare, the Aquarium in Cattolica. 

Rimini has a very important history,that many ignore. The Romans occupied Rimini because it Was located in a strategic geographical position to conquer the Po Valley,still Under the dominion of Gauls. Not only, but also for the fertility of its soil and for the beauty of its coastline.So the Romans founded ARIMINUM, the oldest Roman colony, giving it a first urban footprint, thanks to the development of roads.

You can reach the old town of Rimini by bus n° 11 in about 25 minutes (bus stop is 100 m far from the Hotel and the bus ticket costs 1,30€) . A few steps from the bus stop is the Tempio Malatestiano, Rimini’s Dome: white and hieratic with the marble facade, signed by a giant of the history of architecture, Leon Battista Alberti, the Malatesta Temple contains a series of chapels and treasures: a Crucifix by Giotto, a fresco by Piero della Francesca, the precious bas-reliefs of the angels playing on a blue background.

Immediately after the Duomo you will find the first of the 3 squares of Rimini: Piazza Tre Martiri, dominated by the clock tower and symbol of the partisan struggle.

Walking along the Corso d'Augusto you get to the second square: Piazza Cavour with the pine cone fountain and the Vecchia Pescheria (old fish market) with its eighteenth-century marble counters. This area, in the heart of the historic center, is a bit like the Montmartre of Rimini.

Between the medieval squares and romantic alleys, the night life of Rimini youth takes place.

Here people can have dinner under the stars in an ancient square or drink something chatting under a white colonnade.

Here many trends were born and then exported to the rest of Italy: from finger food to monoportion on small glasses or decorated spoons.ù

Continuing along via Gambalunga you get to the third and last square: Piazza Ferrari, considered the minor square until in 1989 , when  a very exceptional archaeological area was discovered, which returned the tools of the work of a surgeon who worked inside of a third-century Ariminum house, partly used for the medical and pharmaceutical profession. The excavation was called Domus of the Surgeon.

An excavation that the architectural work protects and enhances, offering it to the eyes of passers-by.
