“Rimini is like the Blues, it has a bit of everything.” (Luciano Ligabue)

Whether you are a true globe trotter set off to see the world on a low budget, or you can afford to book a suite at Federico Fellini’s five-star Grand Hotel, Rimini, "the city of small villas", is the place to go!

The most famous seaside resort on the Adriatic Riviera, Rimini is truly a place of artistic and cultural interest, a place that breathes out the unique force and energy of the many Roman and Renaissance masterpieces waiting for you to discover and enjoy.

Let yourself caught by ‘The Rimini Enchantment’,Rimini let yourself entrapped into a new tourist brand embodied by the 227 bathing establishments and 1100 hotels, by the Kursaal - constructed to host sumptuous social events, or, by the first-rate entertaining facilities for children; indulge yourself with the aperitifs served on the beach, followed by an exquisite late dinner on the sea breeze. You cannot but love it!

A former colony of the Roman Empire (Ariminum), Rimini is still pending between past and present, and boasting about the pride and glory of the long gone days, the ruins of which stand as hard evidence today: the Piazza Tre Martiri - a large forum, two central streets - the Cardo Maximus (Via Garibaldi e Via IV Novembre) and the Decumanus Maximus (Corso d’Augusto), and last, but not least, domus del chirurgo - the surgeon’s house.

Rimini is the very expression of original cultural ferments, and this is why it has always stood out among the other cities of the world: the famous names of Augustus, Hadrian, Galla Placida, Gitto instantly make you think of the city’s sumptuous archeology and cultural history disclosed by The Arch of Augustus, The Bridge of Tiberius - two triumphal monuments, The Amphitheatre - outsized by the Coliseum alone, the Church of San Stefano, or The School of Rimini – a cultural trend.

No doubt that this is far from being a comprehensive list. However, closing in to the modern world, Luigi Poletti should also be added on the list as the father of the modern Neoclassical Rimini which can still be seen in the architecture of the theatre designed by him, or of the palaces built along Corso Augusto.

Unquestionably, this must be the bit of everything that you will get while in Rimini!
