Have you ever considered the Rimini area as your second home in Italy? 

Rimini is the biggest beach resort in the Emilia Romagna region, on the Adriatic side of Italy, which is the east side. It’s a very sought-after destination by both Italian and international tourists. 

The town itself offers an impressive nine miles of beaches but it is much more than this. As a matter of fact the old town centre, about a 15-minute walk inland, has many interesting historic sights too. 

Rimini is also well known for its many great restaurants and especially an energetic nightlife

Yet its surrounding area, characterized by rolling hills and historic destinations but also by other well known sea towns, is definitely worth a visit.

What to see in Rimini & surroundings

Rimini is mainly famous overseas for their long sandy beaches (and the hospitality of its people, of course!). But there’s so much more than this. 

These are the main sights that Giacomo Piergentili recommends you to visit when in the area: 

  • Riviera Romagnola — the famous stretch of sandy beaches including the town of Rimini but also other well-known sea resorts like Riccione, Bellaria Igea Marina and Cattolica.
  • Rimini harbor 
  • Tiberius bridge (Rimini old town centre) 
  • Ravenna mosaics 
  • San Leo castle

Can’t-miss Italian dishes to taste when in the Rimini area

True Romagna tradition is for earthy dishes, and among all of them we have the piadina — soft and fluffy Italian flatbread that can be filled with anything you like from cured meats, cheese and grilled veggies — and the homemade pasta such as cappelletti or passatelli in broth, tagliatelle with meat sauce and stewed cockerel. 

As desserts, mascarpone cream is king over all. 

Seafood cuisine is also delicious and focuses on fish from the Adriatic Sea, so anchovies (called saraghine), clams, mussels, squid, cuttlefish, shrimp and mackerel.
