RIMINI BREAKS

Rimini has become a popular tourist destination not only because of its desirable climate and seaside location, but also because its sceneries reflect thousands of years of human achievement.  Not an easy feat, that is why, Rimini is undoubtedly deserving of its place in the world’s must-go places.

Rimini is located on the eastern coast of Italy, right on the Adriatic Sea. It was first occupied by the Greeks and then the Gauls. In 200 BC, the Romans established their dominance and developed Rimini’s first infrastructure: roads, fortifications, and civic buildings. At the time, they called the town Ariminum. In AD 500, the Romans lost control of Ariminium to the Byzantines, who eventually plunged the city into economic gloom. The city only experienced economic recovery at the beginning of 1900 through the birth of numerous bath establishments and luxurious residencies.

But even if the Roman Empire has fallen, the impressive works of the Roman architects and their successors have remained. Some of these works include the Arch of Augustus, Tiberius’ Bridge, and the Palazzo del Podesta.

Built to be indestructible, the Arch of Augustus (Arco d’Augusto) provides a formal and grandiose entrance to the city to travelers.  Via Flaminia, the street that marks as the tail-end of the arch is practically at the other end of the street that serves as the other end.

Ponte de Tiberio or the Tiberius Bridge was a brainchild of Emperor Augustus.  He initiated its construction.  His adopted son, Tiberius, who succeeded him completed it hence the name. Owing to the popular fascination of the number 5 in the olden days, the bridge has five arches with a uniquely designed set of pillars and, well, arches.

The Gothic Palazzo del Podesta was originally built in the 1300s. However, in the 1600s it was partially torn down and refashioned according to the style of that period. In 1922, Gaspare Rastelli restored Podesta, carefully following the drawings and plans of the original building.

Rimini’s Roman and Renaissance monuments are not the only attractions that lure tourists into the place. Rimini’s Marina Centro offers an elegant green area, which is ideal for long walks. The area also has a great variety of shops, cafes and bath establishments.

When it comes to eating, Rimini rarely offers highly elaborate dishes. The food, however, is tasty, even if it is prepared using natural ingredients that are not altered by long cooking or exotic techniques.

One of Rimini’s most popular foods is the piadina, a flat type of bread. You will find piadina everywhere, in roadside kiosks and beach restaurants, in the many piadina restaurants dotted everywhere, in taverns and trendy restaurants.

If you like good pizza, various places offer this Neapolitan dish, such as Da Carlo, the Gaiofana (where probably the pizzas are more genuinely Neapolitan), La Brasserie (very popular especially in winter), the Carisma and Le Logge.

When in Rimini, you should make it a point to have at least one dinner or lunch of cooked fish. The restaurant most famous for a hearty cuisine based on fish is Il Lurido in the heart of Borgo San Giuliano. Cesenatico is also worthy of a mention. Nightlife in Rimini is full of excitement and fun. The areas to consider if you want to party the night away are the seafront, Marina Centro, Rimini city centre, and Riccione Alta.  You can say that entertainment is one of the more guaranteed aspects of your visit all year round.

At the city centre, you will find the “La Cantinetta,” which is considered as the heart of early evening night life. The more popular bars found along Marina Centro are The Ombelico del Mondo and Club Rockisland.

Rimini also has a wide variety of interesting shopping spots, from elegant boutiques to colourful and lively markets.  A fanfare in the market is held every Wednesday.  On Saturday mornings, the same festive mood is carried on in both Piazza Cavour and Piazza Malatesta. During the summer, a market is held every Sunday in Torre Pedrera, every Monday in Viserba, every Tuesday in Miramare, and every Thursday in Bellariva. Also during the summer, an antiques market is held every Tuesday evening in Marina Centro.

Rimini has many festivals to celebrate all year round. In honor of the Christian holiday, Lent, Rimini holds the Carreto Lent Carnival in late April. In the blistering summery days, Torriana, a little village up in the hills of Rimini, hosts a poetry festival called Fiesta alla Fontana dei Poeti, and in June, Rimini ups the ante with its annual beer festival.
