Walking through the old Town

The origins of the city date back to 268 to.C., when the Romans founded the city of Ariminum , developing it, as was the custom of the roman, on the axis of the two main streets: the cardo (via Garibaldi and via IV Novembre) and the decumanus (corso d'augusto). For this reason, when our guests ask us what to visit in the historical centre of Rimini we always start from the roman monuments: the Arch of Augustus, the roman Amphitheatre (once the site of gladiatorial shows) and the Tiberius Bridge. The Bridge now connects the old town with the Borgo San Giuliano, an ancient fishing village, characterized by narrow streets and offers fascinating glimpses of the houses from the colorful walls and rich murals in memory of the great director Federico Fellini and his films.

Dating back to the times of the lordship of Malatesta, theancient Castel Sismondo and the Malatesta Temple, a masterpiece of renaissance architecture, designed by Leon Battista Alberti. Inside you will see a crucifixion by Giotto and a fresco by Piero della Francesca, representing Sigismondo Malatesta, lord of Rimini and patron of the temple.

Piazza Cavour is the centre of the nightlife of rimini; in particular, the Pigna Fountain and the Old fish market of the eighteenth century, is the meeting point from which to reach the local and the pubs of the city centre.
