10 Things to Do in Rimini That You Shouldn't Miss

January 25, 2018 Florencio Paulino

The biggest beach resort on the Adriatic Sea, Rimini is a favored Italian seaside holiday destination for Italians themselves. The city offers an impressive nine miles of beaches, though many of these have private access for the scores of hotels facing the shore. The old town, about a 15-minute walk inland, has many interesting sights, including the Arch of Augustus from 27 BC, and Tiberius Bridge from the early 1st century. Rimini also boasts many great restaurants and an energetic nightlife.

Rimini beach is a very poor example of a nice beach. We made the trek here from Florence to stay for a day and sleep the night. After being at the beach for one hour we packed our bags and headed back to Florence for the night. Not impressed at all. Water and beach weren't nice at all. The entire beach is pretty much beach chairs so if you want to lay out a towel you are forced to go to the very end where it's pretty much a roadway. Will NEVER come back to Rimini again. The pictures you see online are just dreams. Place is a dump. 2 thumbs down.

Beyond the bridge of Augustus you will find this small fishing village. Now with quaint, two-story restaurants and small houses. It is not a destination among the most important but worth a visit if you choose one of its restaurants

Basilica Cattedrale (Tempio Malatestiano)

Reviewed By NewMexicans_10 - Santa Fe, NM

Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta ordered the reconstruction of the Gothic Franciscan basilica around 1450 as a mausoleum for he and his mistress Isotta. It was designed by the noted architect Leon Battista Alberti (who designed the upper facade of Santa Maria Novella in Florence and the Palazzo Rucellai for the Medici). Inside are magnificent frescoes by Piero della Francesca and a crucifix by Giotto, which predates the reconstruction. Heavily bombed during WWII, the restoration is excellent. Overall, it is a stunning building architecturally and for its art.
It is an easy walk from the train station to the Tempio - about 15 -20 minutes. Note that it is open daily in the morning and reopens around 2:30.

A very prominent structure and hence can't be missed. What remained is pretty well maintained. Its quieter here early in the morning but gets busier during the day as it is also one of the meeting points.

Museo della Citta di Rimini

Reviewed By elainehansen2016 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

The roman surgeon's house in Rimini is one of the most interesting roman excavations in Italy. The archaeologists have been careful to show the different layers of its history, so you can view the original floors and walls, see the burned window grating as a result of the fire which destroyed it, then view the more colourful mosaic floors of a later building on the same site complete with yet later graves (and their skeletons!) from the graveyard built on top. In the museum next door all the surgeon's instruments can be seen as well as a model of the house and two reconstructed rooms complete with furniture and colourful beautifully decorated walls. The museum has an extensive collection of exhibits showing the history of man from the earliest times, and the top two floors house an art gallery of artists from the Rimini area of which the highlight is the collection of the 13th century school, the pupils of Giotto.
I spent a whole day visiting the museum and surgeon's house and still didn't manage to see everything! Rimini is one of the most fascinating roman towns in Italy and should be on the itinerary of anyone with an interest in roman history.

The Fountain is not very big, but the horses are beautiful. You can hide from the sun and just sit there and relax. There is an ice cream place next to it, so just grab an ice cream and enjoy.

in the middle of Rimini, at about 2 meters below current city surface, the remains of a roman house were found. The remains, which mainly exist of beautiful mosaics, have been restored and it is worth visiting them.
