Located on the east coast of Italy, Rimini has been inhabited since prehistoric times, and founded as a Roman town in the 1st century B.C. Rimini today is a bustling seaside resort city, particularly popular with Italians, although word about this great destination is starting to spread throughout the world. With stunning beaches, great archaeological sites, and a laid-back atmosphere without any of the stress found in larger cities, Rimini is the perfect place to holiday by the sea, and with your rental car you can explore the whole area and see everything it has to offer. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car hire in Rimini is both easy and economical.
With a long and interesting history, it is clear that early settlers soon realised the beauty and pleasant climate of the area, quickly deciding to call it home. A great way to start your visit is by heading to the oldest remains of life in the area, at the archaeological site within Piazza Ferrari, which is one of the main squares located in the city centre.
Park your rental car near the square, and check out the amazing site, which was only discovered in 1989 while work was being done on a public garden, underwent 18 years of preservation until it became open to the public, just a few years ago. Apart from the house of a surgeon from the 2nd century, the site also includes ruins and artefacts from Roman times as well as the Middle Ages, a must for history fans visiting the area! Not far from here you can also visit Castel Sismondo, a castle which dates back to the 5th century.
To visit an attraction which will impress both young and old alike, jump in your hire car and head north of the city to Italia in Miniatura, a small theme park located just a short drive out of town. Here you will find a miniature model of Italy, with over 270 monuments and sights recreated in scale and laid out in the shape of the country. The park also has rides and games, making it a great place to visit for the whole family.
Once you have seen some of the sights, it's time to enjoy what most people come to Rimini for, the beach! The warm waters of the Adriatic Sea combined with wonderful weather throughout most of the year are what draws holiday makers here, and it's as easy as driving your hire car along the coast and choosing a spot for yourself to relax and soak up the sun!
