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.

Beautiful Arch of Augustus ( Arco d'Augusto ), together with the Tiberius Bridge, is one of the oldest Roman symbols of Rimini, as well as a fundamental reference point for the whole city. The monument is in fact located in the historic center, at the end of the Corso d'Augusto, which crosses the entire center until it reaches the Tiberius bridge. It has four shields or round portraits from Roman times, in which the four deities are depicted: Jupiter, recognizable by the lightning symbol; Apollo, depicted with zither and crow; Neptune, recognizable by the trident and the dolphin, and finally the Goddess of Rome, represented with the sword and the weapon trophy. A wonderful example of Roman history that we can enjoy.

Very nice and interesting place. Arriving at this beautiful square, they immediately catch the eye of the beautiful palace. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The history of this square as well as Tre Martiri Square is interesting. Piazza Cavour is the political and economic center of the city since the beginning of the thirteenth century, when it gained importance with the construction of the palace dell'Arengo. The square is beautiful because it is eventful. It is possible to admire the beautiful Palazzo dell'Arengo (1204), where in medieval times justice court was administered and the assembly of the Municipality met. In the square we can enjoy two more beautiful palaces Palazzo del Podestà and Palazzo Garampi. At the center of the square, on the other hand, stands the imposing bronze statues of Pope Paul V, by Nicolò Cordier and Sebastiano Sebastiani, a monument erected by the citizens in gratitude to the Pope in 1614. The square also houses the famous Teatro Amintore Galli in neoclassical style, inaugurated in 1857 by Giuseppe Verdi, as well as the historic Library and the interesting Fish Market building. In the middle of the square there is the beautiful Fontana della Pigna. We enjoyed every look, every step, beautiful square.

This cathedral is the masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance. Tempio Malatestiano is a beautiful one-nave church built by Leon Battista Alberti in 1450, by order Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta. The church was supposed to represent the secular power of the client, and the impression was enhanced by a fantastic ornament in the interior with mystical and secret iconography. Reminiscence of antiquity is evident on the facade of the Cathedral. The façade repeats the motif of the triumphal arch, and on the sides of the arcade motif imitating ancient aqueduct. The sarcophagi of Sigismondo Malatesta and his mistress Isotte degli Atti were to be located in the semicircular recesses on the facade, and the recesses on the sides of the building were intended as the tombs of scholars and poets from Malatesta's court. But the Cathedral was never completed. The medal by Matteo de 'Pasti from 1450 shows the original appearance that the temple should have had, with a large rotunda covered by a hemispherical dome similar to that of the Pantheon. It is beautiful on the inside where the works of famous Italian Renaissance painters and sculptors decorate the Cathedral. We can admire the Giotto’s Crucifix ( Crocifisso di Rimini ), fresco by Piero della Francesca ( Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta in preghiera davanti a San Sigismondo (1451), a large canvas by Vasari (San Francesco che riceve le stigmate). We also enjoyed the magnificent works of the artists Leon Battista Alberti, Matteo de 'Pasti, Agostino di Duccio. Magnificent Cathedral with a lovely atmosphere.

The Tiberius Bridge also known as Ponte d'Augusto e Tiberio is located on one of the ends of the city’s main street, Via Corso d’Augusto.
Like the rest of Rimini, the bridge is really nice and a gem of all the history present in the city. Loved to see it! Also found really interesting that the bridge is actually over a part of the sea, not an actual river :D

I hadn't realised that Rimini had such a historical heart. The city centre is an attractive collection of ancient Roman remains and medieval buildings amassed about the two main squares of Piazza Cavour and the Piazza Tre Martiri. There's the Tiberius bridge and the Arch of Augustus - both remarkably well preserved.

Had a great half day here. We were a little disappointed that a couple of the rides were still closed but had a fun day nonetheless. Loved that the monrail stopped at the foot of the map so you can appreciate the whole of mini Italy. Made for a great pic! Very accessible from Rimini on the bus.
