City of Rimini, Emilia-Romagna
Rimini Beach
Rimini is the capital city of the province of Rimini in Emilia Romagna and it is undoubtedly the best coastal resort along this stretch of coast, as well as being the most famous in Europe. This is hardly surprising with its wide, sandy beach which stretches for 15 kilometres. The sea bed has a very shallow gradient making it safe for children and therefore an ideal family holiday resort. It became a holiday destination when the first bathing establishment opened in 1843.

Find hotels in Rimini

All of the resorts and facilities stretching along the length of the beach are equipped to the highest standard. There are over one thousand hotels, hundreds of restaurants and bars, theme parks, a harbour and access to all sporting facilities. Rimini is also well known for its extensive and exciting night life.

Away from the coast the city is packed with art, history, beautiful buildings, gastronomic delights and an endless array of interesting shops. Rimini has, in the past, constantly been the gateway to the Orient and it has occupied by so many different civilisations that its history and culture is extremely rich.

The bridge still connects the city centre to Borgo San Giuliano and connects to the roads Via Emilia and Via Popilia that lead north. The bridge was built from Istria stone and consists of five arches resting on massive pillars with breakwater spurs.
