A quaint seaside town on Italy’s East Coast, Rimini provides you awesome attractions and sightseeing avenues for a wonderful vacation. Rimini, despite its beauty and beach stretches, has not advertised itself to the tourist crowds, making it a calm, quiet, and untouched seaside destination. This, however, also means there aren’t a lot of English speaking people who live here and a few Italian phrases might be handy when you set about exploring the town and the cities in the vicinity. Having a car rental in Rimini is, without doubt, the best way to have a stimulating vacation in these parts.
Downtown Rimini is replete with buildings, wonderful landmarks and exemplary museums for you to visit. The Tempio Malatestiano is a beautiful Gothic masterpiece Cathedral with tombs of Sigismondo and his wife in the grounds. The Tiberius Bridge, a one-of-a-kind structure, over the Marecchia River is worth a visit, too. Other notable structures here include the Arch of Augustus, the Castel Sismondo, the Bronze Statue of Paul V, the Santa Columba Bell Tower, and the Teatro Galli.
Rimini has a lovely harbor and waterfront overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Most of the waterfront space is full of tourist traps and flea markets catering to tourists and locals. You’d be able to find snazzy night clubs, restaurants specializing in sea food, and beautiful sunset views at the harbor grounds with a car for rent in Rimini. The rocky main way to the harbor front is also a beautiful place to spend leisurely evenings watching the sun set in the horizon. Ships, yachts, and jetties can be chartered at the harbor, too.
Rimini has more than 15 kilometers of untouched beachfront. The water is warm and shallow so you can swim and frolic about with abandon. Sea sports aren’t very famous in these parts. Most tourists prefer sunbathing and taking a dip into the waters. Mammal watching trips from the harbor are also quite popular in Rimini. A car for hire in Rimini would be the best way to explore the entire coastal expanse of the beautiful town.
There are many towns around Rimini that you can visit and take pleasure in. Ravenna is a beautiful town with a Mosaic Basilica in the center. Ancona is famous for its Cathedral, the beaches, and the popular Mount Conero. Cesena is another town in close proximity where you find a host of historic landmarks. San Marino and Urbino are other popular vacation spots. All in all, Rimini is a lesser known but fabulous place to let your hair down. With a rented car you can have a comfortable means of transport, making sure that you can explore every possible place here.
