Did you know that Rimini, a well-know italian tourist location, was founded by the Romans in 268 BC? Throughout Roman times, Rimini was a key communications link between the north and south of the peninsula. The Tiberius Bridge is just one (and maybe the most famous) Roman landmark here. It was set, together with the Arch of Augustus, to mark the beginning and the end of the Decumanus of Rimini.

But Rimini is also more: during the Renaissance, the city benefited from the court of the House of Malatesta, which hosted artists like Leonardo da Vinci and produced works such as the Tempio Malatestiano.

Every place is easily accessible by foot, hence don’t forget to walk by the water-channels and the many places that serves easy food around the area – remember to try the “Piada” or “Piadina.

You can find a rough easy walking tour map below. Who wants to get also a bit of the “beach” feeling, walk till the Darsena, where there is also the free beach.

Ah, last thing: we were there during this special Christian feast called “Corpus Domini” – 20th June. They ended the ceremony at Piazza Cavour, and there were hundreds of people.
