RIMINI – HALF DAY TOUR
Rimini is one of the best known tourist destinations on the Adriatic coast for its warmth, hospitality, entertainment, good food and the historical and artistic heritage, perfect for those looking for a beach holiday.
If you think that Rimini is active and fun only in the summer time you are mistaken!
In winter time, its historic centre is an important gathering place for fun and events, without forgetting the important history of the town, long desired and disputed, a capital of the Malatesta lordship, a crossroad of cultures that preserves ancient and valuable evidence. Its art treasures contemplate masterpieces ranging from the Roman period to the Renaissance.
Rimini is a pleasant town to discover on foot, following the impressive and evocative tracks left by twenty centuries of history as the Roman amphitheater, the Arch of Augustus, the Malatesta Temple, the Roman Three Martyrs Square and the medieval Cavour Square, with the Old Fish Market and the Galli Theatre, ending with the City’s Museum, which preserves its past, thanks to more than 1500 works, and the archaeological site of the Surgeon’s House with an exceptional surgical and pharmaceutical equipment arrived intact to us from Roman times.
RIMINI – FULL DAY TOUR
Having more time available, it will be possible to visit the Church of St. Augustine, among the most impressive churches of the town, with its precious cycle of paintings made by the workshop of Giovanni da Rimini, Castel Sismondo, fortress-residence of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, Lord of Rimini from 1432 to 1468, the Bridge of Tiberius, which still fascinates for the grandeur of its structure and for the wisdom of building technique, and Borgo San Giuliano, the old fishing village of Rimini, a picturesque town where it is possible to admire the contemporary murals, inspired by Federico Fellini and his cinematographic masterpieces, and walk among the colourful houses of the fishermen and discover the Church of San Giuliano (which houses an altarpiece by Paolo Veronese!) with the nearby monastery dating back to the 17th century overlooking the ancient Via Emilia. The tour ends with a transfer on the promenade, a walk to the harbour and the lighthouse, to reach the Grand Hotel and the Fountain of the 4 horses.
