In town and out of town

Let’s start by dividing the itineraries between in the city and outside the city: Valentina, from Rimini, and Gianbattista, originally from a village in the hinterland, are the right guides to introduce you to this journey, two souls of the same land, who know of sea and hills , each with its own distinctive features but which come together in perfect synthesis, unique and harmonious.

Valentina can tell you everything that Rimini offers starting from its historic center, from Roman origins through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to today. He will surely tell you about the majestic Arch of Augustus, the ancient gate of the city, and the two thousand years of the Tiberius Bridge, the extraordinary The Surgeon’s House, unique in the world, and the amphitheater …. Throughout the centuries he will advise you not to miss a visit to the Malatesta Temple, a Renaissance masterpiece by Leon Battista Alberti inside which there is a crucifix by Giotto and a fresco by Piero della Francesca, and to the beautiful Piazza Cavour, with its medieval buildings – now home to PART, the amazing art collection contemporary of the San Patrignano Foundation – the Galli Theater, the charming Vecchia Pescheria. From there you cross the new Piazza dei Sogni and enter Fellini’s universe, with the widespread museum dedicated to the Master of world cinema housed in Castel Sismondo and in the Palazzo del Fulgor. Among the suggestions there will certainly be to stroll along Corso d’Augustoup to the Piazza sull’Acqua and Borgo San Giuliano, with its colorful houses, restaurants and murals by Italian and international artists.

Gianbattista is a native of Verucchio, the cradle of the Malatesta family, where Mastin Vecchio, progenitor of the Rimini Lordship, was born. The village is in the heart of the Marecchia valley, immersed in a spectacular landscape that embraces the sea and hills. Take a walk through the alleys and craft shops, up to the fortress that dominates the town, and taste the typical food and wine, you will not regret it. But the origins of Verucchio are much older because here there is an important settlement of the Villanovan-Etruscan civilization that flourished from the 9th to the 7th century BC. and which today can be discovered at the Archaeological Museum. If from Verucchio you go inland, along the river you will meet Torriana, Montebello and the suggestive Sanctuary of the Madonna di Saiano, up to San Leo, one of the most beautiful and majestic places in Italy, with a fortress at peak on a spur of rock whose profile can be distinguished even from very far away. From here you can continue to reach Pennabilli, with its original and exciting places of the soul designed by the poet and screenwriter Tonino Guerra. Returning to the sea, a stop inSantarcangelo di Romagna is a must to get lost in its beautiful historic center made up of alleys, stairways and squares, with bars and restaurants that invite you to stop for a glass or dinner.

Equally beautiful, but sweeter than those of Valmarecchia, are the views of Valconca, the other valley of the Rimini hinterland, on the border with the Marche, among which Montefiore and its fortress, Saludecio, Mondaino and Montegridolfo, stand out, while near the coast there is San Giovanni in Marignano, the granary of the Malatesta family, and, immediately after the Romagna border, the very famous Castle of Gradara which, according to legend, is the scene of the tragic love story of Paolo and Francesca sung by Dante.

For those who love to do activities in nature, in addition to Valconca and Valmarecchia right on the border between Romagna and Marche stands the Regional Park of Monte San Bartolo. It rises because it is the first promontory you come across coming from the north and it is a naturalistic jewel overlooking the sea that reveals fantastic panoramic points at every turn. The advice is to follow it on foot, on the beautiful paths of the cliff, or by bicycle, mountain bike or road, the famous Panoramica – or Pano – where Valentino Rossi began to train.
