We were going to visit San Marino, so we decided to spend a couple of days in nearby Rimini.
Rimini is a riviera with sandy beaches overlooked by cool modernist hotels.
The Old Town is beautiful and includes a good collection of Roman and Medieval landmarks. It is also the birthplace of Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini.
For lunch we visited Bar Lento, a cool cafe serving delicious vegan snacks and drinks (lunch for two including tip for 18.50€).
Rimini is definitely a good place to visit and relax for a couple of days!
San Marino was one of the few European countries we hadn’t visited yet, so we decided to check in out in January.
It is located high up in the mountains, giving it amazing views over the region. Unfortunately when we visited the place was right in the middle of the clouds, and we couldn’t even see further than a few metres ahead.
We spent a few hours exploring the narrow roads and visiting the main towers, even without being able to see much.
For lunch, we stopped at Laminona, which serves piadinas and offered a few vegan options.
San Marino is picturesque and I’m sure we would have enjoyed it more on a sunny day!
- Go: We flew to Bologna, where you can get semi-frequent buses from the airport to Rimini. You can reach San Marino from Rimini taking a regular bus which departs just outside the train station (return for 10€ per person). The trip takes 50 minutes each way.
