Rimini, Italy

Rimini, Italy

emblematic Italian beach resort, Rimini is always buzzing,
but mainly with a local crowd. It’s set on the Adriatic in Italy’s
northern region of Emilia-Romagna,
making it an easy reach for those visiting Florence and

While a big
party destination
, Rimini is also a cultural goldmine.
Chock-full of Roman ruins and renaissance palazzos, it’s a city
that’s as fit for a hen party as it is for a more historical
itinerary. The area’s swathes of golden beach are lined with pastel
rows of umbrellas, so shimmy into a chaise lounge between exploring
on foot and hitting one of Rimini’s extravagant nightclubs for an
afternoon Aperol spritzes.

Don’t miss

For a morning escapade before you’ve been out three nights in a
row, venture to Santarcangelo di Romagna, one of Italy’s most
picturesque hill towns just outside Rimini’s city centre. Make sure
to bring a bikini so you can head straight to the beach when the
sun starts creeping up around midday. Linger in the shallow water
and make a dent in your book (aka nod off for a few hours in the
late-afternoon sun) before making your way to one of the hundreds
of beach bars in Rimini for sundowners.

While most days are spent between pounding the pavement,
sunbathing and prancing across the dance floor, Rimini has a more
artistic side too. Cinema lovers must visit the Federico Fellini
Museum, entirely devoted to the mastermind behind
La Dolce Vita

Who to bring with you

Your favourite party pal.

When to go

Revellers can head here all summer long to make the most of the
seashore packed with beach clubs – 5 July is particularly important
to keep in mind, as it is La Notte Rosa (The Pink Night), when the
entire coastline is illuminated in rosy hues throughout hours of
partying. For more low-key exploration of the city and surrounding
hill towns, early autumn is best.

Most likely to bump into

Florentine families escaping the city heat.

Essentials to bring with you

Bohemian kaftans that can take you from sun lounger to beach bar
cocktails in a second.
