Rimini is a city in Italy, capital of the province of Rimini, in the Emilia-Romagna region.
Located on the Adriatic coast, between the mouth of the Marecchia (the Ariminus of the Romans) and the Ausa (Aprusa in Latin), it is one of the largest seaside resorts in Europe, thanks to its 15 km of sandy beach and its many hotels.
The first bathing establishment in Rimini opened in 1843. It is an ancient Roman port, rich in Renaissance buildings. Founded by the Romans in 268 BC. AD, Rimini was immediately a strategic port for the traffic of goods and travelers between Cisalpine Gaul and the rest of the Italian peninsula.
The Roman emperors erected monuments such as the triumphal arch of Augustus or the bridge at Tiberius; then during the Renaissance, the city became the palace of the princes of Malatesta, protectors of artists as illustrious as Valturio, Alberti or Leonardo da Vinci, to whom we owe masterpieces such as the Malatesta temple.
In the 19th century, Rimini established itself as one of the bastions of the cause of Italian unity, sheltering many opponents of absolutism.
