I've spent most of my childhood vacation in Rimini
"It was great!"
Almost every Summer my parents would take me to Rimini, high touristic area in the middle of Italy. We would spend 2 weeks there by the Sea and usually stay at a pensione, (hotel that is family owned) that I remember for it's great breakfasts, lunchs and dinners all inclusive.
The beaches are filled with launch chairs and umbrellas that you can rent for the time you visit and no one takes your spot! You have "bagninos" who are like the owner of a section of the beach and they are the ones who handle the renting. I know it sounds weird but I had so much fun every summer. And at night, once I got older, my parents would let me go to night clubs, t (they have tones there) while they would drink wine all night at a restaurant with my uncles and aunts, what great memories, I really miss those days sometimes!!
