    FEDERICO FELLINI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

    Rimini Airport is a small comercial aiport joined in with an active military base. It's braight and cheerful and has a few basic services. The most important thing is that it is served by a variety of budget airlines from across Europe. The link below is the airport's webpage showing the airlines that fly here.

    Inside the terminal you will find a snack bar on both sides of security, an expensive 'Duty Free' shop, ATM's, a Tourist Information office and a bank. The local bus and taxis are just out front. Not a big place, but it does the job.

    Italian Airline, Volareweb

    by Skipkoo Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waiting to go home.

    We found a reference to this airline one day on the forum here. They were mentioned as being very competitively priced. We had already been away once in the early summer of 2003 and had no intention of going away again but when we saw these prices.....well what could we do BUT book!!

    The only negative thing about the airline, and that is not really negative if you are prepared, is that you cannot reserve seats, it is a first come onboard, first to choose the seats basis.

    The great thing about Rimini Airport is its size...it is so small. When we came home, at midday on a friday, our plane was the only plane leaving the airport until about 4pm, so the only passengers at the check in and departure lounge were the ones on our plane! mmmmm but I am afraid that did not stop people pushing and shoving in an effort to get their desired seats.

    THE BEST TROLLEYBUS TO GET AROUND

    by DAO Updated Oct 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE NUMBER 11 TROLLEYBUS
    The whole of the Rimini seafront is bordered by a single main road that runs for miles. Everything you can think of is essentially on the route of the Number 11 Trolleybus starting at the main Rimini Train Station. You can buy tickets from many businesses displaying a sign (pictured), machines and a few offices. The tickets cost 1-Euro and are good for 90 minutes of travel. The main road it travels on through all the sections of Rimini changes names 3 times, but you will stay on the same road (Viale A. Vespucci, Viale R. Elena and Viale R. Margherita). The stops are all numbered and any hotel along the seafront will tell you which stop to get off at. Near the stops there are street signs for just about every hotel so you will not get lost. Combined with the no. 9 bus at the airport you can get to most hotels for a single ticket.

    The times vary by time of year and weekday/weekend. It does have times as early as 5:22am and as late as 2:38 am. For a cheap ride anywhere along the beach – just jump on!

    The website link below lists where the coin operated ticket machines are.

    FROM THE AIRPORT TO TOWN

    This could not be easier or cheaper. Just outside the airport terminal is the stop for Bus number 9. Simply buy a 1-Euro ticket at the snack bar inside and get on the bus. Please remember to validate your ticket with the pictured machine on board. The ticket is good for 90 minutes of travel and is cheaper than a 40-Euro fine. The bus takes about 15 minutes to take you to the main Rimini TRain Station. From there you can take the no. 11 Tram all the way across Rimini, on the same ticket! And Taxis? The expensive thieves are just outside as well. On weekdays the bus service starts from the airport at 6:19am and runs until 1:10am. Weekends start around 7am and still run up until 1am. Excellent service that's economical!

    Tram service daily card

    by ealgisi Updated Apr 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rimini tram service is really well organized and not expensive at all.
    Usually the bus is on time, with a maximum delay of 5-7 minutes caused by the traffic in high hours.

    If you intend to go around Rimini by bus i suggest to take the 24 hours card (orange ticket 24 ore) which cost 3 Euro and is valid for 24 hours.

    Remember to put the stamp using the machine when you take the bus !

    By plane to Rimini

    by Airpunk Written Dec 11, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rimini has a small airport close to the beach area, southeast to the town. It is served by a hand full of airlines, including low fare airlines such as Easyjet and Air Berlin. If you are looking for very cheap fares, you may also consider flying with Ryanair to Forlí, Ancona or even Bergamo and then continuing your journey by train (which is very cheap in Italy). Check out my Forlí page to find out how to get from Forlí Airport to Forlí’s central train station.

    Public transport in Rimini

    by Airpunk Written Dec 11, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rimini’s public transport company AM (formerly TRAM) has a good bus network system with affordable fares. Several lines rund trough the city and to the suburbs. Probably the most important is No. 11 which runs from the town center via central station and along the beach to Riccione. On most stations, the bus stops only on request. Please make clear that you want to take the bus by making a hand signal. Otherwise, the bus will not stop for you. Tickets can be bought in many shops. Booklets with 10 tickets can also be bought and are cheaper than buying single tickets. Bus drivers do not sell tickets in the rush hours and if the busses are too full. Also, the tickets they sell are 50 cent pore expensive than thos bought in shops. Note that for some routes which lead far away, especially to the southeast for Rimini, special tickets are required.

    Public transport in Rimini region

    by PetraG Written Apr 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rimini - main place

    Public transport in Rimini is very handy and easy. The municipal bus company TRAM links the entire urban and suburban area of the city and province of Rimini. The best-known urban route is the one that connects the city centre, with Riccione, passing through the beachfront promenade area, Bellariva, Marebello, Rivazzurra and Miramare. The route has been extended to include Riccione's spas. Passengers may reach not only Santarcangelo, but also Torre Pedrera, Bellaria-Igea Marina and even San Mauro Mare. There are 15 routes linking every corner of Rimini's territory and they all stop at the Railway Station.

    Coaches destined for San Marino, Morciano di Romagna, Cattolica, the airport, Savignano and Torriana all leave from station as well. One hundred metres from the station there is also the Ferrovie Padane bus line station, which is the starting point for coaches going to destinations in Valmarecchia, Upper Valmarecchia and Montefeltro where there are interesting places to visit, such as Verucchio, Pennabilli, Sant'Agata Feltria and Carpegna. Other private bus lines widen the choice of excursion alternatives, with destinations that include Montegrimano Terme, Mercatino Conca, Montescudo and all the other principal localities in the Valconca area.

    How to get there

    by AlexDJ Written Feb 8, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rimini is a crossroads for important lines of communication.
    From the North it can be reached via the A14 motorway from Bologna.
    There are two exits from the motorway: Rimini Nord and Rimini Sud.
    At the northern end the exit leads directly to the area between Torre Pedrera and Santarcangelo, and driving towards the sea one comes to the beach localities north of Rimini: Torre Pedrera, Viserbella, Viserba, Rivabella and San Giuliano Mare.
    To get to Rimini's beachfront (Bellariva, Marebello, Rivazzurra and Miramare) on the other hand, the best exit is Rimini Sud, which also leads to the state road for San Marino, the SS 72.
    Visitors coming from the north-east, from Veneto, Trentino, Friuli or even Ferrara, can take the Via Romea and then the Statale Adriatica, the SS 16, that leads from Ravenna to Rimini.
    Coming from the south one can choose either the A14, which leads from Bari to Rimini, or the parallel state road, the SS 16, which runs along the Adriatic coast.
    Those coming from Umbria or Tuscany can take state road SS E45 and proceed until Cesena, wich is a little north of Rimini. From Cesena, you have to follow the SS16 or to take the motorway A14.
    The city is also easy to reach by train: all types of trains stop in Rimini and in summer train service is increased.
    In addition, the airport in Miramare connects Rimini with European capitals and the major Italian cities.

    Train travel in Italy

    by sue_stone Updated Nov 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    where to next ??!!

    I have now been to Italy several times and each time have travelled around this fabulous country by train.

    Once you get the hang of it, train travel in Italy is easy. It is also a great way to see the beautiful countryside on the way to your next destination.

    I have travelled a couple of times using a rail pass, but the last couple of visits have just purchased tickets for each individual trip as we went.

    That said, we often have purchased tickets a day or two in advance - particularly if the particular train requires a seat reservation, or if it is a busy time of year.

    Purchasing a little in advance also means that you don't miss the train you want to catch due to a huuuuuge queue for tickets...

    Last trip we used the automatic ticket machines at the stations and found them excellent.

    Also, I have travelled both first and second class, and didn't really find much difference - travel second class and you can use the extra money to buy more wine/food etc

    Just remember with all tickets that you need to validate them in the small yellow ticket machines before you board your train.

    Car, train, airplane, boat.
    If you are coming from Bergamo do NOT travel by the train called 'la freccia orobica'. It takes SIX hours from Bergamo to Rimini. You can use that train if you are specifically interested in studying grandmothers travelling with grandsons/daughters.

    Bus/Car connection is...

    by barcodex Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bus/Car connection is definitely the best.
    I believe there are also some domestic flights to Rimini as well, but you risk not to see a lot of country beauty if you take a flight.
    I did not either try the ship connections, but they definitely must exist.
    You can use a car. You can just go walking along the sea-cost or several streets that are aprallel to sea line. Or you can hire a motoroller, or bicycle (with either two or four wheels). I also tried a four-wheel bicycle and I found it a very exciting experience to drive it.
