Currency

Being a country integrated in the European Union, Italy and, hence, Rimini, has adopted the sole European currency, that is, the Euro. People traveling to Rimini from outside Europe and who are not familiar with this currency should keep in mind notes refer to 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 euro bills, whereas coins are represented by 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents and by 1 and 2 euro coins.

Money exchange

Roughly speaking, banks open weekdays from 9:30am to 3:30pm. As expected, banks offer the best rates, so people who want to exchange currency can do that by resorting to bank services, though other solutions refer to the post offices and to the exchange desks (cambios in Italian) in Rimini.

Traveler’s checks and credit cards

Tourists can use both traveler’s checks and credit cards in Rimini, but these means of payment are accepted only at hotels, large shopping centers and certain restaurants. However, in order to avoid embarrassing situations, tourists should constantly hold some cash, since the largest part of tourism-related establishments accept cash as exclusive means of payment. ATMs are to be spotted throughout Rimini and in its surroundings, so getting cash should not become an issue.

Spoken language

Given Rimini is part of Italy, the official spoken language is Italian. Yet, besides the pure Italian, one frequently used dialect refers to the Emiliano-Romagnolo dialect, an idiom specific of the region of Emilia Romagna where the city and the province of Rimini are located. English is also spoken in tourism-related establishments, though not as fluently and accurately as one might expect.

Papers

European citizens only need a valid identity card in order to enter Italy, Rimini included. Passports are required for all people coming from outside the European Union; they also need a visa, as follows: citizens of Australia, Canada, Israel, Japan, New Zeeland, Switzerland, and USA need a visa if the intend to stay more than 90 days, whereas people coming from other corners of the world need a visa regardless of the duration of their stay in Rimini.

Customs regulations

The customs regulations operating in Italy are similar with the ones of the members of the European Union. However, the limits of products brought in or brought off Italy can amount to more than: 200 cigarettes, 1 liter of alcohol, 60 milliliters of perfume, just to give several examples, provided that the items are for personal use only, and not intended for commercial activities.

Tap water

Undeniably, tap water is drinkable and safe to drink. However, bottled water seems to better tap water as far as tourists are concerned.
