Rimini—discover the true meaning of "la dolce vita"

Nobody does the good life as well as the Italians do, and there are few places in Italy that do it as well as Rimini. Overlooking the placid blue waters of the Adriatic, the bustling city of Rimini offers everything you'd expect of Italy's most popular seaside resort. Mixing with bronzed beach goers, spoiling yourself in chic boutiques, and roaming through the Old Town's historic piazzas are part and parcel of a Rimini vacation experience. With a Rimini vacation rental, you'll soon discover the true meaning of "la dolce vita."

Things to do

Do as the Romans do in ancient Rimini

When you book a Rimini vacation rental, you're really getting 2 vacations for the price of 1. Rimini's not just a fantastic seaside resort, it's an ancient city. Founded by the Romans in 268 BCE, Rimini boasts a 2,000 year history that's left an indelible mark for all to see. In the Old Town, you'll discover the restored Arch of Augustus, which was built for the Roman emperor of the same name in 27 BCE. The 2,000-year-old Tiberius Bridge is also a must-see, as are the 13th-century Tempio Malatestiano cathedral and the 15th-century Castel Sismondo.

Activities

Sampling Rimini's local delights, on and off the beach

Rimini's golden beaches extend for over 10 miles and are hundreds of yards wide, so there are plenty of spots to swim, surf, or just catch some rays. The beaches are lined with some fantastic bars and restaurants, where you can sit out, have a drink and try some of the delicious local delicacies, including "piadina," a tasty bread served with almost every meal. In downtown Rimini, you might find it hard to resist the allure of the fashionable boutiques, while in the historic Old Town, you'll be captivated by the Renaissance-era squares lined with magnificent churches and places.

Weather

It's warm and sunny... what else would you expect

You'd expect a popular seaside resort like Rimini to get nice weather now and then, and you'd be right, too. Rimini has a semi-continental climate, which means mild winters and hot summers. T-shirts and shorts are recommended in July and August, when temperatures can push into the 80s. Word to the wise though, it can get a bit stuffy although the breeze does help. It's still pretty pleasant come fall—October often experiences highs of 70 or more. Rimini gets pretty packed in summer, so if you're looking to avoid the crowds you might want to consider a Rimini vacation rental in September.

Natural features

Wind your way down the coast

Rimini's a pretty busy place, that's part of its appeal. But if you want to escape to some peace and quiet, there are lots of options, although none are likely as good as Monte San Bartolo Natural Park. Just a 45-minute drive away, this idyllic coastal park features steep craggy cliffs that plunge to the sea and panoramic roads that wind along scenic ridges, offering breathtaking views of the rugged coastline and the lush forest. In the park you'll find plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails, where you can enjoy the flowers and the plants, the birds and the wildlife.
