    Borgo San Giuliano.

    by Maurizioago Updated Dec 6, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This maze of narrow streets was an old fishermens' quarter. Here you see lots of colourful houses. There are nice painted murals on several of them.

    Borgo San Giuliano is situated at the end of the Tiberius' Bridge; coming from the center of Rimini.

    Santarcangelo di Romagna.

    by Maurizioago Updated Nov 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Santarcangelo di Romagna is a beautiful village some 10 km far from Rimini. It has a fortress (Rocca), built in 1386 (there was a previous one); enlarged and modified after a century. Near and below the fortress you can stroll though the Medieval area of the village with a network of narrow cobbled streets and nice houses. The "modern" area has lots of shops and cafes to rest a bit.

    This village has also a couple of museums. A museum of buttons; where you can see a large display of buttons from various ages and an archaeological museum.

    You can go to Santarcangelo from Rimini by bus. Take n. 9 or 91.

    Theme Parks - Italia in Miniatura (1)

    by Maria81 Written Jan 8, 2010

    Where?

    In Viserba, take either SS16 or Bus #8 from Rimini's train station

    What?

    Italia in Miniatura is a theme park near Rimini with scale models of major Italian sights as its centerpiece.

    Apart from that, there is also a special area dedicated to Venice, a 'Europe in Miniature' zone, as well as a panoramic tower (one of the best ways to get an overview of the park), water cannons, and roller coaster attractions.

    As an alternative to the panoramic tower, for views of the main Italian and European sections you could try the train ride around.

    A scientific zone for kids completes the attraction.

    Gurkha Cemetery

    by Airpunk Written May 4, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In WWII, soldiers from all over the world helped to free Europe from Nazi Germany and their fascist allies. Among the troops of the British empires were troops of the nepalese Gurkha tribe, people which are known for their physcial strenght. Close to Rimini, there is a place to remember the fallen Gurkhas who played an important role in the liberation of Italy. Coming from Rimini, the cemetery is on the right hand side of the road leading from Rimini to San Marino.

    Borgo San Giuliano

    by PetraG Written Apr 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After crossing the old town centre on Corso d'Augusto as far as the Ponte di Tiberio, take a look at the Marecchia river park to the north and at the port canal to the south, then enter the medieval district of San Giuliano.

    A series of narrow alleys form a labyrinth in which even the locals often get lost.

    But it doesn't matter if you do because on every street corner you can admire murals dedicated to the life and films of the great film director Federico Fellini.

    The murals were painted by local artists on the elegant small houses carefully looked after and decorated with flowers. Every two years the unmissable street festival "Festa de Borg" is held.

    If you wish to continue the Fellini theme, you can walk on to the town cemetery not too far away in Via Cipressi where Fellini and his wife Giulietta Masini are buried under the monument "La Grande Prua" in the form of a sail by the sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro.

    Italia in miniatura

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I didn't go to this but it looks like fun. There's some 273 reproductions on a scale of 1:25 and 1:50 of some of the most famous monuments in Italy and Europe spread over an area of 12,000 square metres. There's a whole area dedicated to Venice in which you can take a trip down the Grande Canal. There's also a monorail that goes around the whole park and a panoramic tower. Ideal for kids and adults!

    The park is situated to the north of Rimini (5km) in an area inland from Viserbella on the Via Popilia. Check website for opening hours as they do change over the year. Admission - € 16.00 adults, € 12.00 kids.

    Museo dell'Aviazione

    by Willettsworld Updated Aug 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rimini has an aviation museum which is on the way to San Marino. It covers an area of 80,000 square metres and is the biggest of its kind in Italy. There are around 30 aircraft on display, mostly from Russia, former eastern block countries and the Italian air force but there are also a few from the USAF and Clark Gable's Douglas DC-3. There is also a modern pavilion which houses a great collection of uniforms, medals and other memorabilia. If you're an airplane buff then this is the place for you!

    Directions: The Aviation Museum Park is situated by the main Rimini-San Marino road at km 8.5. Arriving from San Marino, the park is about 1 km after the frontier. Arriving from the A-14 motorway, the park is about 8.5 km in the direction of San Marino, and can be seen on a hill to the right.

    Open everyday from 9am-7pm. Admission is € 8,00 for adults, € 6,50 for kids.

    Strolling in the back streets

    by gosiaPL Updated Dec 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've no idea where this was, maybe somewhere in the area between the Piazza Cavour and the Tiberio's bridge, but it wasn't a major street. I like the old wall with the ivy on it!

    If you want to see the "real" old Rimini - the hometown, and not just the tourist place - stroll around the historic centre and go into as many streets as you have the time for. It's really worth cutting your time on the beach to see what most tourists miss :-)

    Check also the beautiful old villas closer to the sea in the vicinity of Fellini Park!

    Now, where was it...?
