Introducing Rimini Holidays
One of Italy’s best-loved seaside destinations, Rimini boasts 20km of soft sandy beaches, an attractive historic city centre, and beautiful views out over the Adriatic Sea. A firm family favourite, Rimini entices visitors of all ages with its relaxed pace of life, friendly restaurants, and laid-back atmosphere.
Children are warmly welcomed wherever they go and Rimini Beach is perfect for little ones, with long clean sands, umbrellas for shade, and calm waves. You’ll find plenty of beach activities to keep everyone entertained, from beach volleyball and tennis, to windsurfing and canoeing. Many of the beach areas have private access to the beachfront hotels, but you can also find some lovely public beaches to relax on. During the summer months, you can even enjoy outdoor movie screenings on the beach.
While life in Rimini centres around the seafront, there’s also a rich historical side to the city. Dating back to ancient Roman times, the Old Town has many fascinating sights to take in. Rimini is also known for its energetic nightlife, with restaurants, bars and clubs for everyone. Prepare to dance the night away Rimini-style!
Top Attractions in Rimini
While it’s perfectly possible to while away your days in Rimini relaxing on the beach, the city is also packed with interesting (and beautiful) historical sites to visit. Just 15 minutes inland from the beach, you’ll discover Rimini’s Old Town with its grand plazas, intriguing narrow streets and ornate fountains. Head to the Piazza Tre Martiri, in the heart of the city, to see the impressive clock tower, browse the shops and sip an al-fresco coffee in one of the many pavement cafes. Don’t miss the Fontana dei Cavalli and Castel Sismondo as well.
Rimini’s history goes way back, so taking in some of the ancient and medieval sights is a must. The Tiberius Bridge spans the river running through Rimini and is a spectacular viewpoint, while the ruined Roman amphitheatre, once as large as Rome’s Colosseum, is a wonderful place to take a tour or enjoy an open-air musical performance on a warm evening.
For an attraction with a difference that the kids will love, take a trip to the Italy in Miniature museum. It’s actually a lovely green park and miniature replica of Italy floating in the lake that you can explore.
A ride on the Wheel of Rimini! This is Rimini’s answer to the London Eye and is the best place to get breath-taking panoramas of the city, the beach and the sea below. Whether you go for a romantic ride at night, or take the kids for an eagle eye view of the city during the day, this is one of Rimini’s unmissable attractions. The atmosphere in the area surrounding the wheel is warm and family-oriented, with plenty of tasty places for snacks and drinks.
