Trip to Rimini
A city between high culture and bathing experience
Considering today’s bathing culture in Rimini, one can hardly imagine that the first of the lidos, the so-called bagni, was only opened in 1843. Nowadays, Rimini is one of Italy’s most important bathing resorts with approx. 250 bagni. During the end of the Middle Ages and the early modern era the whole province was ruled by the Malatesta who architecturally moulded the region. Numerous defensive constructions and still well-preserved fortresses as well as medieval city centres around Rimini attest to the family’s heritage. The region has a lot to offer even aside historical evidence.
Hotels & Accommodations
A Mecca for bathers
With approx. 250 bagni – the first was opened on 30 July 1843 – Rimini is one of Italy’s beach metropolises. The vast sandy beach of the Adriatic coast is perfectly suited for relaxing and sportive activities. New popular sports are regularly invented around the beach and are waiting to be tried out. Once known as the "Teutonic grill" due to its great number of German tourists, Rimini is nowadays frequented by Russian tourists and mostly natives. Yet the surroundings have a lot to offer for beach lovers while furthermore proving to be inviting for riders and golfers.
Malatesta region with architectural features
With Rimini gaining communal independence, the Malatesta rose to power in the 12th century. They not only offered a home to artists, but also constructed fortified villages around the provincial capital with numerous fortresses and heavy castle walls to guard against attacking enemy families. To this day, for example, Monte Colombo’s rampart or Casteldelci’s fortification of holm-oaks attest to the region’s eventful history. Finds of this era as well as excavations of the Iron Age and the Roman Age can be marveled at in various museums around Rimini.
Bathing fun, holidays for active connoisseurs or retracing the steps of one of Emilia Romagna’s most influential families – Rimini is always worth a trip.
