Discover Rimini


The newly-rennovated Fulgor is the historic cinema in Corso d'Augusto where Federico Fellini saw his first films and which later became a star of his own works. It's a Fellini icon and an unmissable stop on a Fellini-themed tour of the heart of Rimini.


Take a walk with Federico Fellini in Borgo San Giuliano, the ancient fishing district with its little squares, narrow streets and low, colourful houses. You can follow a route guided by murals on the walls of the buildings and find out which of them are dedicated to the great director and to the movie star Giulietta Masina.


Dive into history by crossing the Tiberius Bridge, built by the Romans in 14 AD. This is the start of the Via Aemilia, a consular Roman road that led to Piacenza. See the wonder of its ancient Itstrian stone blocks and its magnificent arches, which a legend says were built by the devil. As you stroll along the banks of the river Marecchia, among the lawns and walkways of the Park area, you can admire the double view of the bridge reflected in the water.


The Antica Pescheria, or ancient fish market, in Piazza Cavour, with its long marble benches is where traders sold fish and "poveracce", as clams were known in this area. Dating back to 1746, the building consists of a lovely colonnade and the marble benches, and is one of Rimini's main attractions, being surrounded by numerous bars, inns, pubs and restaurants of all kinds.


The Tempio Malatestiano is testimony to the magnificence of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta and an outstanding example of Renaissance culture. Work on the church began in 1450, and the exterior is by Leon Battista Alberti. Inside there is a Giotto crucifix and a fresco by Piero della Francesca depicting Sigismondo kneeling at the feet of San Sigismondo.


The Surgeon's House in the archaeological complex of Piazza Ferrari. Among the most important finds here is a collection of 150 surgical instruments which left no doubt as to the identity of the house's owner: a doctor. It appears that Eutyches - this was his name - came from Greek lineage and, as often occurred in antiquity, trained on the battlefield. Indeed, the instruments were used primarily for bone traumas and wounds, which gives the impression that Eutyches was a military surgeon.
