Seaside shenanigans are within easy reach in Rimini

It's hard not to lead a charmed life when you're relaxing in Rimini vacation rentals. This northern Italian province is located in the Emilia-Romagna region, one of the wealthiest locales in Europe. The province's capital city, also named Rimini, is a seaside playground with hot clubs, family-friendly waterparks, and wide beaches kissed by the sparkling Adriatic Sea. In its hinterlands are farm-stays where you can hunker down to simple yet delectable regional fare. The towns and villages in between are centers of Roman-Renaissance culture, each with a character of its own.

Things to do

Castle-building: a pastime of Rimini's Renaissance lords

From 1295 to 1500, Rimini's overlords were the Malatesta family, whose story has all the elements of a soap opera—from blood feuds with rival families, to conflicts with the pope, to brothers killing brothers. The family is long gone, but its reign marked Rimini's landscape with castles. The most famous of these are the medieval Castel Sismondo and Rocca Malatesta, the family's main residences, both located in Rimini's city center. Outside the city, there's the small hilltop commune of Montefiore Conca, where the Malatesta hosted popes and royalty, and Verucchio, a fortress overlooking the city.


Honeymoon hideaways or family fun—romantic Rimini is for everybody

Rimini is certainly a place for romance. If you're traveling with your sweetheart, you can deepen your bond at the beach, stroll hand in hand along the promenade of Marina di Rimini, or lock eyes over a cozy seaside dinner. There are plenty of Rimini vacation rentals that cater to couples, but you can definitely enjoy Rimini even without a significant other. Beach volleyball is a group sport you can enjoy with the fam, or you can cycle down scenic trails along the coastline or through the countryside. Rimini is also Europe's theme park capital, so it's a great spot if you've got kids with you.


It might rain on your parade in Rimini

Rain can be a constant companion when you're in Rimini. It regularly visits the province in springtime, from March to May, and in fall, from September to November. Brace for afternoon thunderstorms in summer, which lasts from June to August, and in winter, from December to February. Winter temperatures can plummet to 1 degree, while summers can be humid and scorching, with temperatures peaking at 102 degrees. Summer is when Rimini vacation rentals near the beach get busy, so book ahead if you want to spent your summer vacation there.

Natural features

Head for the hills—or for the family-run wineries and olive groves

Rimini is a land caught between rolling hills and the sea. At its eastern side is the Adriatic Sea, whose waters gently lap the province's wide, fine-sand beaches. Inland, Rimini is surrounded by hills, which roll further into the Apennine mountain range, the backbone of Italy. Between the hills and the sea are plains made rich by the rivers Marecchia and Ausa. Where these plains are not occupied by charming medieval and Renaissance towns, there are farmlands, vineyards, and olive groves that have been typically run by ancient families for generations.
