What to do in Rimini?
Even in low season, the city pulls in travellers and stays lively thanks to a constant influx of Italian and international visitors. Immerse yourself in its historic ambience with a wander around charming cobbled streets, do a spot of shopping, or spend time chilling at the beach. In the evening, all the action takes place in lively bars and clubs on the seafront.
Visit the historic sights
Rich in Ancient Roman remains, Rimini is beloved of history enthusiasts. Start your visit at the Arch of Augustus, the imposing ancient gateway to the city, built to commemorate the Emperor Augustus and ornamented with sculptures representing the Roman gods Jupiter, Apollo and Neptune.
Then stroll along the busy Corso d'Augusto shopping street to Piazza Tre Martiri, the historic heart of Rimini. After taking photos of the octagonal bell tower at Tempietto di Sant'Antonio chapel and the bronze statue of Julius Caesar, sip an espresso in one of the upmarket cafés lining the square.
Close by is the Tempio Malatestiano, a splendid example of Renaissance architecture. Inside you'll find a treasure trove of artworks – highlights include the tomb of 15th-century military hero Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, a fresco by Piero della Francesca and Giotto's gilded "Crucifix".
Wind up your tour by visiting the ruins of the Roman amphitheatre, found on the edge of the historic city centre. Once you're among the remains of its walls and seating tiers, it's easy to imagine the spectacles that took place many centuries ago.
Have a stroll in Borgo San Giuliano
After visiting Rimini's historic centre, head for the charming little enclave of Borgo San Giuliano. To get there, cross the Ponte di Tiberio bridge, one of the oldest Roman bridges in Italy. Now pedestrianised, it offers lovely views over the area. Strolling the streets of this once-traditional fishing hamlet, you can admire the vividly coloured cottages and take photos of the street art depicting scenes from the films of director Federico Fellini, who was born in Rimini in 1920.
If you book a Rimini hotel for the beginning of September, your visit might coincide with the Festa de' Borg, a festival held every two years with vibrant street parades, concerts and dance spectaculars, which winds up with a spectacular firework display over the Ponte di Tiberio bridge.
Discover Italy in miniature
Around 15 minutes from the centre of Rimini is an unusual attraction for families with kids. Famous Italian landmarks like the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Rome's Colosseum are displayed as detailed scale models at Italia in Miniatura.
Spend time by the sea
Also a popular seaside resort, Rimini has wide sandy beaches edging the Adriatic Sea. Hire a deckchair and lounge under a red parasol, have a dip in the sea or give yourself an adrenaline rush by hiring a jet ski and racing along the coastline.
Rimini restaurants and nightlife
Italy is justly famous for its cuisine. You can taste classic regional dishes in many Rimini restaurants, or drop into one of the informal pubs or cafés along Corso d'Augusto after a shopping expedition. For a romantic dinner, choose one of the smart restaurants lining Piazza Tre Martiri. In Borgo San Giuliano, you can feast on fresh seafood platters, authentic pasta dishes like strozzapreti and the local piadina flatbread filled with mozzarella, tomato and charcuterie – it's designed to be eaten on the go. And of course, the Emilia Romagna region is full of vineyards, so accompany your snack with a good glass of wine!
For dessert or a quick break during the day, try the small, round bracciatello brioche found in most bakeries, or the regional fruitcake bustrengo.
In the evening, night-owls congregate along Marina Centro, Rimini's seafront promenade, which transforms into a giant street party after dark. You're spoilt for choice on Viale Amerigo Vespucci, which is lined with clubs and cocktail bars, most with terraces overlooking the sea.
