Briefly, tourists can get to Rimini by train, by bus, by plane or by boat. This array of means to get to Rimini is as diverse at it gets, at least as far as mainstream means of transport are concerned. But this is only natural, since Rimini benefits from a convenient location on the air, road, railroad and maritime infrastructure of east Italy.

By air

It’s true there is one international airport servicing Rimini, namely, Federico Fellini Airport, also referred to as Rimini-Miramare Airport (Aeropuerto di Rimini-Miramare). This airport is located only 8 kilometers from the city, and it is serviced by some 20 airline companies which provide connections with European cities like Moscow, Frankfurt, Rome, as well as with non-European destinations (Sharm el-Sheikh, for instance). At the same time, it is the one airport which is located the closest to Rimini, as compared to other airports tourists can resort to in order to get to Rimini.

A further alternative in terms of getting to Rimini by air refers to landing at Forli Airport. The venue is located roughly some 30 kilometers from Rimini, and it provides connections with European cities like Berlin, Paris, Bucharest, Sofia, Moscow, Cluj and Prague. Tourists who land at Forli Airport can get to Rimini by train.

Last but not least, visitors can get to Rimini by landing at Bologna Airport. It’s true this one is located some 100 kilometers from Rimini, which means some might consider it rather impracticable. It is, nevertheless, an alternative, being serviced by 30 airline companies which link Bologna, the surroundings included, to destinations like Amsterdam, Rome, Casablanca, London, Munich, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Brussels and Paris. In order to get from Bologna Airport to Rimini, tourists who opt for public transport means must first use the buss in order to reach to the train station and then get in a train and head for Rimini. This alternative seems to be a little more sluggish, yet is counts as a reliable manner of getting to Rimini by air.

By train

As it is the case with most mainland destinations, Rimini is reachable by train too. In fact, plenty of people opt for this means of transport, despite the fact it is not as time efficient as flights. However, in terms of railroad infrastructure, Rimini is serviced by one major train station and by other four minor train stations, the latter providing connections with local or regional destinations.

The largest and most important of all stations in Rimini refers to the one located in Piazzale Cesare Battisti. The RFI train station is located only a 10-minute walk from the historic center of the city, and the trains departing from and arriving at this station link Rimini to all major cities in the Emilia Romagna region, such as Ancona, Ferrara, Padua, Ravenna and, of course, Bologna, the capital of the said region. In order to get to Rimini from outside Emilia Romagna (let’s say, from Rome or Florence, or, why not, from abroad), tourists must travel first to Bologna and then head directly for Rimini.

The other four smaller train stations are the Miramare Train Station (terminal for regional trains heading south to Ancona), the Viserba Train Station and the Torre Pedrera Train Station (both terminals for trains heading north to Ravenna) and, finally, the Rimini Fiera Train Station.

For further information on lines, trains, rates and schedules, please visit the official website of RFI, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (Railway Network of Italy), as well as the official website of the Rimini Fiera Train Station.

By bus

Traveling by bus in order to get to Rimini might prove to be an excellent idea for tourists who want to spend their vacation in the most famous resort on the Adriatic Riviera. There are plenty of bus companies operating in Rimini, most of them working in city or intercity system, providing connections with the nearby cities of the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Again, most of these companies have conceived networks of lines taking into consideration a highly significant tourist requirement, that it, to tick off the most popular and valuable tourist attractions and objectives within Rimini proper and its surroundings.

However, there are several bus companies focusing on including Rimini on their network of lines which stretches throughout Italy. Thus, by resorting to the available bus services, tourists can get to Rimini from Milan, Brescia, Asso, Arezzo, Bergamo, Chiasso, Modena, Verona, Turin, Florence, Naples, Rome, Venice, and, why not, San Marino, just to count a few. Almost 30 bus companies are available in Rimini and put forward their services in order to carry tourists between Rimini and the rest of Italy. Some of them provide international bus trips and connections to Rimini. The following is the list of the most important companies of this kind. Please use the following information in order to learn further details on the lines, destinations, rates and schedules made available by these operators:

By car

Some seem to believe getting to Rimini by car is not the most inspired alternative, especially in summer, when the tourist flow tends to increase substantially. However, newcomers and usual visitors alike who do intend to drive to Rimini should keep in mind this Italian resort city is located conveniently on the Italian road infrastructure. Autostrada Adriatica A14 which, for most of its lay-out, runs somewhat parallel with Autostrada del Sole A1 (though the two cut each other nearby Bologna), provides direct links between Rimini and Bologna. In order to get to Rimini from the south resorts on the Adriatic Riviera, tourists might also follow Via Adriatica, Via Flaminia and their extensions.

The bottom line is, despite the possibility of facing a considerably crowded road to Rimini in summer, driving to Rimini counts as a practicable alternative.

By sea

In addition to all of the above mentioned means of transport, Rimini is also reachable by sea. It’s true few tourists resort to boat trips in order to actually get to Rimini. On the other hand, most visitors do use boats (rented or otherwise) in order to explore the Adriatic Riviera by sea.

Emilia Romagna Lines

However, for people who by all means want to get to Rimini by sea, one notable sea line operator who provides services in this respect refers to Emilia Romagna Lines. The chief international destinations refer to Rovinj and Losinj, both located in Croatia.

Rimini Harbor (Marina di Rimini)

Marina di Rimini is where people traveling to Rimini by boat are to haul ashore. The harbor is a large venue stretching on more than 100,000 square meters, which is indicative of its ability to accommodate a large number of vessels. In addition to its mission, Marina di Rimini counts as a fine spot for cannier pastimes in Rimini: walks and sightseeing, as well as attending to sundry cultural and sports events. Boats enter the harbor by the old port canal (Porto di Rimini), a charming passage overtopped by a white lighthouse and populated with various fishing related venues (shops, markets).
