Located where the Marecchia River meets the Mediterranean Sea, Marina Centro is a waterfront district in Rimini. It’s home to a bustling marina, a sandy beach and picturesque parks, as well as fantastic restaurants and bars.
Things to do in Marina Di Rimini
Watching over Marina Centro is Il Faro di Rimini, a whitewashed lighthouse that has protected the port-canal since the 18th century. You can watch the fishing boats departing to harvest clams and admire the “Sailor’s Bride” sculpture, which was created by Umberto Corsucci in honour of the women who waited on the docks for fishermen who never returned.
If you don’t have time to explore everything Italy has to offer, you can experience the country on a miniature scale at Italia in Miniatura. It features hundreds of famous Italian buildings, including the campanile on St. Mark’s Square and the Grand Canal of Venice, as well as the Colosseum and the Florence Cathedral. In addition to its miniature landmarks, the park boasts a log flume ride and hands-on science exhibits.
Visiting in the summer months? Rent a sun lounger and beach umbrella to enjoy the sands of Lido San Giuliano, which is backed by several eateries such as La Terrazza, Caribe and Barafonda Beach. On the other side of the port stretches Spiaggia Libera Rimini, a free beach watched over by Park Federico Fellini, a popular green space that is named in honour of the famous Italian film director.
