If you feel like discovering the ancient Roman town of Ariminum, just take a stroll through the city centre: you will find the Bridge of Tiberius, the Arch of Augustus, the Surgeon’s Domus, the ancient forum in Piazza Tre Martiri, and the Amphitheatre.
You may also want to explore a different side of Rimini and search for the signs of its Renaissance past, starting with Tempio Malatestiano, the cathedral church that houses a fresco by Piero della Francesca portraying Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta and the famous Crucifix by Giotto, and Castel Sismondo, which will soon house the new museum devoted to Federico Fellini. As a matter of fact, the legendary Italian director was born in Rimini and in 2020 the city will celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth with an exhibition (virtual tour).
Outside the city you may enjoy the quiet of Val Marecchia and Montefeltro with their stunning views (the background of many well-known Renaissance paintings) and lovely villages, including San Leo, Verucchio, and Pennabilli.
And what about the coastal towns of Cattolica, Misano, Riccione, Borgo San Giuliano (with its evocative murals) and Bellaria Igea Marina? So grab a piadina and a glass of Sangiovese wine and enjoy your vacation!
