    The little birds' fountain

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Take a walk around Piazza Cavour and check some architectural details, you won't regret it!

    In the niche by the stairs below the Palazzo dell'Arengo tower there is a cute little detail that I called the birds' fountain. I have no idea what it was before or what it was meant to be... but I can see the pigeons don't really care about this ;-)

    Julius Caesar watches the world go by

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The monument is by the exit from Piazza Tre Martiri into Corso d'Augusto. The Caesar just stands there reminding us of the greatness of this country.

    Apparently it could have been in Rimini that Julius Caesar addressed his troops after leading them across the Rubicon river towards Rome! That's when he decided to start the war with Pompeius and the Senate, and he said the famous "The dice is cast".

    The Rubicon is thought to be either the Fiumicino or the Pisatello river, but there is no definite answer. Haha, and in the 15th c. Rimini and the town of Cesena had a court case, each one trying to prove that the town's river was the actual Rubicon :-)

    The Four Horses fountain

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The fountain is right in the middle of Parco Federico Fellini. Beautiful four horses support the main bowl of the fountain from which the water springs up.

    The rich greenery of the park, the sound of the water.... ahhh, there's a relaxing moment! Just sit on a bench by the fountain for a few moments and be lazy in Rimini... ;-)

    Piazza Cavour, detail

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Keep your eyes open for the beauty of architecture.
    This balcony and the little statue in an alcove is in Palazzo Garampi which is now the Mayor's Office on the corner Piazza Cavour and Corso d'Augusto.

    Fondest memory: Strolling in the streets and absorbing the beauty that someone created to give 'flesh' to an idea.

    The historic main road

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is now Corso d'Augusto, one of Rimini's main streets, and certainly the main street in the historic centre.
    It used to be the "decumano massimo", the main road in a Roman town that lead towards the Roman forum (today's Piazza Tre Martiri).

    Now I understand why at one end of Corso d'Augusto there is the Tiberius Bridge that marks the beginning of the ancient Via Emilia; and at the other end there is the Augustus Arch that marks the end of Via Flaminia...
    Rimini's layout becomes so much clearer when you're aware of this! :-)

    The dolphin smiled!

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Well, dolphins always look smiley, but if this one didn't smile, then it certainly made joyful sounds at us!

    That was completely unexpected. We were already in our seats waiting for the show to start, when this little fellow started popping out and back into the water right in front of us! I took out my camera hoping to catch him (her?) the next time he (she?) jumps out of the water and there I had it... wew!

    Fondest memory: I like to think the little chap knew it was my first-ever occasion to see a dolphin and came out to say hello... hehe! ;-)

    Cute little chap!

    Maps are easy to get

    by gosiaPL Written Dec 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you really want to know where you're going when discovering Rimini, get a free map at the Tourist Information centre by the railway station.

    When exiting the station into the street, look around and you'll see the centre on your left.

    Piazza Cavour.

    by Maurizioago Updated Oct 2, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are three palace joined together in Piazza Cavour. On your left; near the road you see Palazzo Garampi; built at the end of the XVII century. It is used as town hall today. Palazzo dell' Arengo that housed a tribunal, is located in the middle of this group of palaces. It was built in 1204. Palazzo del Podestà. This was were the lord of the town lived. It dates between 1330 e il 1334. Today it is the seat of various expositions .

    Next to the palaces there is the theater Amintore Galli built between 1843 and 1856.

    Opposite the three palaces you see an old fish market; built in 1743. Today there is a flowers market inside this building. I suppose it is in operation every morning.

    A nice fountain; fontana della Pigna and a big statue of Pope Paul V are the other features of this beautiful square.

    Fellini Park

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Being in Rimini and not seeing Fellini Park is like "being in Rome and not seeing the Pope" as the old saying goes...
    Federico Fellini, the great Italian film director, was born in Rimini in 1920 (and he's actually burried in the local cemetery). The green park is a nice alternative for a walk , especially after you've been looking only at walls and architectural details.

    That's also the place to see local people reading newspapers or books, young mothers with babies, the elderly spending their afternoon here...
    I don't mean to say they are a tourist attraction but it's a nice change to see people in real life situations instead of loud youngsters who wonder which disco to go to tonight.

    The park starts at the Lungomare Tintori in the Marina Centro district of Rimini, easy to find.

    The old fishermen neighbourhood

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is one of the little streets in what used to be a fishermen quarter... anyway, that's what I was told. This could be a Must-See tip, and also an Off-the-Beaten-Path one... for I don't think many tourists bother to head towards this direction.

    Look at the vibrant colours and the old simple architecture! The houses are still inhabited, some of them nice and done up, other ones somewhat neglected... but they all form a wonderful concoction of images of the old Rimini. Check a couple more in my travelogue :-)

    The neighbourhood is to the left of Porto Canal (left when looking towards the sea) between Viale Matteotti and Viale Tiberio. The latter one is the street that goes right into the Tiberius Bridge so you can pop into the neighbourhood when you're done with the bridge :-)

    Fondest memory: Curiosity... of what I will see in the next little street in this charming labyrinth.

    Cute and vibrant neighbourhood

    Piazza Tre Martiri.

    by Maurizioago Written Oct 1, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Piazza Tre Martiri is one of the two main squares in Rimini. It occupies partly the forum or Ariminum; the Roman colony founded in 268 B. C. Its previous names were; Piazza Grande, Piazza Sant Antonio, Piazza Giulio Cesare and Piazza delle Erbe. It was named "Tre Martiri" to commemorate the death of three partisans hanged there in 1944. Martiri means "marthyrs".
    Here you see a nice clock tower, built in 1547 and rebuilt in 1753 and the small chapel dedicated to Saint Anthony. This dates between 1575 and 1578.

    The Tiberius' Bridge.

    by Maurizioago Updated Nov 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This beautiful Roman bridge was started during the reign of Augustus in 14 A. D. and completed under Tiberius' reign in 21 A. D.

    It connects Corso d' Augusto; the old town' s main street with Saint Giuliano quarter.

    It could seem strange, but it can be crossed by cars.

    Bring your camera...Sorry, no...

    by titti Updated Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Bring your camera...Sorry, no pics ... for the moment. I'm still trying to understand how to save and post the photos I took using Robi's digital camera; they are in a lovely CD and don't want to move from there...

    Fondest memory: Rimini is not only discos, fun, sun and sea. Some wonderful ancient monuments like Tempio malatestiano and Castel Sismondo, belonging to the Renaissance period.
    I will add something in future...
