Interesting, if not inspiring. Not really worth going out of one's way to visit. When we were there it was open in the mornings and late afternoons.
A building that is considerated as the first renaissance temple in Italy, and that appears in all Art History books! A great surprise when I first saw it. The inside is beautifully decorated, many masterpieces (frescoes, sculptures,...).
Art historians will tell you about the importance this building has in the history of Renaissance architecture, and they are right to attest to its greatness. But that is not the only reason to visit. The gleaming white exterior is mirrored by the overwhelming sculptural monuments on the interior. The building expresses a beauty, balance and refinement rare in other... More
Rimini is a small, relaxing and beautiful city. With its historic centre, it is a great place to visit. However, the highlight here is the Tempio Malatestiano.

The old city was verry nice. Nice beach. A little bit to croudy at the week end. Good restaurants
Though unfinished, one of the first real Renaissance churches. Incredibly beautiful on the outside, the inside is also stunning, though very simple. What impressed me most is to see how Leon Battista Alberti took ideas straight from the nearby Arco di Augusto improving them with a new architectural meaning.

Seaside Tourist destination during summer period, not at winter season. Nevertheless, we did enjoy & fell in love with the city and the hospitality of the community. From Federico Fellino Airport > take bus #9 (a lot cheaper to buy the bus ticket from the machine at the airport), 45mins to Rimini Train station Central (last stop) >take bus #11... More
