Rimini has about 144,500 inhabitants and extends for 15 kilometres along the coast of the Adriatic Sea, in the Emilia-Romagna region. It is divided between the historic centre and the sea, both parts of a single flourishing reality.
Art, culture, entertainment and relaxation: these are the essential components of one of the most beautiful tourist cities in Italy. Today’s Rimini was born in this way, from a very particular combination of antiquity and prestige, innovation and technology.
It is the city of the sea, the homeland of culture, the heart of the Italian Renaissance and, today, the fulcrum of evolution. The modern beach and bathing facilities, the countless hotels, the most technological and modern exhibition facilities in Europe and the new Palacongressi Congress Facility (the largest in Italy) make it, unanimously, one of the richest and most important cities in the Italian peninsula.
Rimini is one of the Italian cities defined as the "city of the sun". The climate is between the pleasant seaside temperature due to its proximity to the sea and the mild sub-continental one due to its proximity to the Po Valley. The typical winds are the Garbino or Libeccio which descend from the mountains and bring temperatures to peaks of 38 or 40 degrees Celsius with very low humidity rates. In summer, the light breeze is pleasantly accompanied by a warm sun and temperatures which range between 27 and 32 degrees Celsius. In the spring months the climate is mild with temperatures ranging between 15 and 23 degrees; while in the months from September to November the climate is generally warm and between December and January the humidity increases but the temperatures always remain around 10 degrees.
