The different colors of the sea in each season of the Riviera, the background noises of many parks surrounding the city, the brightest lights of the discos in the youth evenings and the scents of local food that fill the sky to the point of teasing the sense of smell when you walk through the streets passing by restaurants or street food vans. Rimini has always been able to welcome tourists, even with the remains of its Roman and medieval history, with the brushstrokes of art that Federico Fellini bequeathed to his hometown to be searched, scattered through the streets of Borgo San Giuliano. But Rimini is also an itinerary through the history that the Malatestas (ancient city's lords) wrote as rulers of the region and, if you let yourself be stimulated by its liveliness, this city will be able to give you all this in just a bit more than a day. Rimini has a very important historical and artistic heritage, which includes churches and convents, villas and noble palaces, fortifications, archaeological sites, streets and squares of historical and artistic interest. This is the result of a succession of 22 centuries of history, through various civilizations and dominations: from the Romans, to the Byzantine Empire, to the important role of free municipality and Malatesta capital, up to the Venetian and papal domination. Is it enough to stimulate your curiosity on Rimini streets? What you can find inside them not written in history books is the friendliness of its people and, most of all the unbeatable home made food. A secret history born with the azdora. If you want to know who azdora is, don't look for the name you will find on several restaurants, just ask to a Rimini's woman. They are the real treasures of this Riviera city.
