-Beaches. There are 15 kilometres of connected beaches running along the waterfront of Rimini and none will take long to get to.The beachfront isn’t just long, it’s wide, sandy and complemented by all the necessary amenities, including cafes and restaurants. At night the beachfront offers fun of a more raucous variety, with numerous nightclubs and bars.
-Cuisine. Being next to the coast it follows that you’ll be able to enjoy some excellent fish and seafood, as well as the kind of hearty traditional dishes that keep locals warm in winter. Fish soup and fried fish are local specialities, as is fresh tagliatelle served with a cheese or meat sauce. Several AOC wines are also produced locally.
-History. For those keen on history there’s plenty of interest both locally and in nearby Rimini. In Santarcangelo there’s an historic man-made cave network, which sits beneath the town and is open to visitors. Rimini meanwhile has surviving Roman heritage, including the Augustus Arch and the Tiberius Bridge.
-Ravenna. In antiquity this city had immense importance; it was the capital of the Western Roman empire, which collapsed in 476. Head here to see the tomb of the medieval writer Dante Alighieri and the Basilica di Sant Apollinare Nuovo, which is as old as the 6th Century and features stunning mosaics from this time.
-San Marino. It’s not often you can experience a complete country in one short day trip, and it’s just a few minutes in the car. It claims to be the oldest surviving constitutional republic in the world, and was founded on a monastic community. The old streets of the city are picturesque and well worth a wander.
