Rimini

RIMINI Offers seaside resorts, villages rich in art and history, gently rolling hills just a stone's throw away from the water, a unique artisan tradition, but also the landscape's beauty, culture and entertainment offerings, and a prized historical-artistic heritage. Not last the high-quality cuisine and gastronomic products are the elements that have made the Rimini Riviera one of Europe's most frequented vacation spots for over 160 years.

San Marino

San Marino is the oldest independent republic of the world, an evocative fairy world perched on the top of the Mount Titano dominating the entire valley below in a crescendo of breathtaking glimpses and unrivalled panoramic views. The symbols of the city are the so-called three "Penne": Guaita, Cesta and Montale, magnificent medieval towers excellently preserved from which you can enjoy the best view of the lively Riviera Romagnola extending just few kilometres away.
