Rimini is one of the most famous tourist seaside destinations in Europe. It is located in the Northern part of Italy, on the beautiful Adriatic sea. Rimini is famous with the endless beaches, nice restaurants and a huge number of clubs, bars and cafeterias.
But a part of that there are a lot of things more to catch your attention. One of the prettiest and picturesque places in Rimini is a neighbourhood called Borgo San Giuliano. It will surprise you with its narrow streets, colourful small houses on which you can see beautiful frescoes representing Frederico Fellini`s movies. Walking through the streets will take you away from the noisy and busy main touristic points.
You can get there from the historical city centre, it is only 10-minutes walk. On your way you need to pass through The Bridge of Tiberius (Ponte di Tiberio) which is also very beautiful place, with a view over Marecchia river. When you cross the bridge you can also enjoy a nice walk in Parco XXV Aprile.
I personally really enjoy this part of the city, it is very beautiful and peaceful. Also I happened to find a small coffee shop, right after the bridge in the beginning of Borgo San Giuliano, called
Pasticceria Vecchi Rimini.
Location: Viale Tiberio 7, tel: (0039) 541 25821
I definitely recommend you to give a try because it is very close to the city centre and in the same time is far from the over-craziness of the main tourist street. It is one of my favourite places in Rimini!
I really enjoy the atmosphere there. You can sit inside and enjoy the interior with the small cute tables, the aroma of fresh coffee and the passionate italian conversations happening on the tables around you! Or you can choose a table outside from where you can enjoy the beautiful view of the park and the bridge.
You can pick from their coffee drinks and super delicious sweets which are fresh and prepared there.
I enjoyed my super extra creamy cappuccino and a red sweet dessert with a cream inside!
P.S: I hope you will like it too! Let me know if you have another favourite spots in Rimini!
