Head to the Rimini South Coastal Stretch for a fix of sun, sand and beach vibes. When you’ve had your fill of medieval castles and Roman ruins, this strip beckons with lively cafes and legendary nightlife. It’s one of the most popular resorts on the Italian Riviera and attracts a mix of local and international sunseekers.
The “lungomare” seafront promenade stretches along the coast and takes you past a string of gorgeous beaches. Rent a sun lounger for the day and order cocktails on demand. Walk up to the main street and order “piadine” flatbread stuffed with mozzarella, prosciutto and vine-ripened tomatoes.
The nightlife in Rimini is legendary and you’ll find most of the action on the South Coastal Stretch. Beach clubs spill onto the sand and reel you in with live music and late-night DJ sets.
Rimini South Coastal Stretch is a five-minute drive and a 20-minute walk from Rimini Station. The stretch is in the Emilia-Romagna region, a 1.5-hour drive from Bologna and 3.5 hours from Milan. Express trains run between Rimini and Milan in three hours. There are also connections to Bologna, Bari, Ancona and Lecce. Federico Fellini International Airport is a 10-minute drive away.
