Beachfront pictureThe coastal city of Rimini has become a leading resort on the famed Adriatic Riviera and much visited by tourists wishing to explore Italy's ever-popular Emilia-Romagna region. Lying directly south of Venice, Rimini has much more than simply its beaches to offer and boasts endless Gothic architecture and ancient remains of past civilisations.

A large part of life in Rimini now tends to revolve around its thriving tourist industry. Many visitors choose to tour the region and also enjoy the sights within neighbouring cities and communes, such as Ravenna to the north and Pesaro to the south.

Language and Dialect

Italian is the language of Rimini and locals tend to speak this with a strong accent, with many also speaking a local Emiliano-Romagnolo dialect. Although many residents involved with the Rimini tourist trade do speak English to some degree, a few Italian phrases will go a long way and often make a holiday that little bit more enjoyable.
