Things to Do in Rimini Italy | Italy Holidays
Things to Do in Rimini: When I visited Rimini for the first time, I discovered that this is not only a city with great entertainment, nice hotels and pubs but it is also the right destination if you love culture, art and ancient history.
What impressed me when I visited Rimini?
Culture in Rimini
When you arrive in Rimini you will discover that this is a city that hides an ancient story.
Rimini was founded by Romans in the 268 B.C, that is why you can find many monuments of the Roman period.
I was impressed to see the Tiberio’s Bridge, built during the roman period and that today is still strong and used daily by cars, people, and bicycles.
The size and structure of this bridge is massive and it is an important connection in the city between Rimini’s center and the Borgo San Giuliano.
I visited Borgo San Giuliano by bicycle and this allowed me to get to all corners of this old town.
This little village is a mix between popular and medieval style.
Art in Rimini
Many buildings are adorned by nice paintings of important characters of this region and that has to do with Federico Fellini, the famous Italian movie maker who was actually born here in Rimini.
If you love the roman art you can also visit the Anfiteatro Romano, a structure where the gladiator’s show was held and that today is still used for other events.
Another place that impressed me was the Domus del Chirurgo, an ancient roman house (domus romana) founded during some works in piazza Ferrari.
It is known as Domus del Chirurgo because here were founded ancient surgical tools.
Theme Parks in Rimini
In and around Rimini there are many Theme Parks good for everyone: young people, children and adults.
I visited Rimini with my friend from the United States, so we chose to visit Italy in Miniatura in order to know all the beauty of Italy in just one day.
But if you have children I suggest you visit Fiabilandia, a wonderful park located in a marvelous green area with also a nice artificial lake and here children will love to have fun in one of the many games and attractions.
Rimini is not one of the most well known tourist areas in Italy but if you have time or fancy a change it is well worth the visit.
