Rimini is a city on the Adriatic Sea in northeastern Italy. It's located in the Emilia-Romagna region between the Marecchia and Ausa rivers, and is the capital of the province of Rimini. It has about 150,000 inhabitants which becomes much larger in the summer when the city is one of the most popular beach resorts in the country.

Weather

Rimini has got a Mediterranean climate though temperatures are a little lower compared to places more to the south. Summers last from June to September when average daytime temperatures hoover around 25 to 30 degrees Celsius on most days and nights are pleasantly warm around 16 degrees Celsius. Winters last from December to February when it's around 8 degrees Celsius during the day and around or just above zero at night. Unlike typical Mediterranean climates, it hasn't got very dry summers and even winters are not significantly wetter compared to summers when some rainshowers are possible as well. Average precipitation is around 40mm a month this more than double from September to November which are by far the wettest months.

Ryanair flies to and from Bristol, East Midlands, Frankfurth Hahn, London-Stansted and Stockholm-Skavsta and Air Berlin has flights to and from Basel, Karlsruhe and Nuremberg although those are seasonal (summer) flights only. Several other destinations with a few other airlines include Tirana, Rome, Munich, Vienna, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Lampedusa, Cologne/Bonn, Hannover and Stuttgart (last three also seasonal).

Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), the national railway, has trains to Ancona (1 hours), Bari (6 hours), Ravenna (one hour) and Bologna (1,5 hours), among other places.

By Car

The A14 toll road goes south into La Marche or northwest towards Bologna and Milan. There is also the SS16 tollfree route, but it's quite a busy route.

There are buses along the regional coastal area and daily in summer to Rome (5,5 hours), twice a week from October to May. Buses also go to San Marino, which is only 45 minutes away.

Ancona, which is only about 1 hour by train from Rimini, has dozens of ferry lines operating services across the Adriatic Sea to Croatia and even further south to Greece.

Keep Connected

Internet

Almost all towns and cities in Italy have internet cafes. A growing number of budget hostels and nicer hotels have free Wifi. By law all public-access internet points must keep records of web sites viewed by customers, and even the customer's ID: expect to be refused access if you don't provide identification. Hotels providing Internet access are not required to record IDs if the connection is provided in the guest's room, although if the connection is offered in the main public hall then IDs are required. Publicly available wireless access without user identification is illegal, so open Wi-Fi hotspots (like the ones you might expect to find in a mall or cafée) all have some form of (generally one-time) registration.

Phone

See also: International Telephone Calls

The main networks are TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile, part of Telecom Italia, formerly state controlled), Vodafone, Wind, and 3 (only UMTS cellphones). Best advice is to buy a prepaid SIM card (from € 10 upwards) and a cheap mobile phone (€ 19 upwards) to put it in (if you don't have a cellphone already that you can use). It will be much more practical. All land line numbers start with 0. Mobile numbers start with 3. Numbers starting with 89 are high-fee services. In case of emergency call the appropriate number from the list below. Such calls are usually free and calls to 112, 113 (police), 115 (fire), 118 (health) can be made from payphones for free without the need of inserting coins. 112 (standard emergency number in GSM specification) can be dialed in any case for free from any mobile phone.

Post

Post Italiane is the national postal services of Italy and has quite an efficient network of postal offices and reliable postal services. Standard letters and postcards (up to 20 grams) cost €0.39 to send within Europe and the Mediterranean countries outside Europe and €0.41 to all other destinations throughout the country. Up to 50 grams, prices start at €0.52 for Europe, €0.62 for other areas. Packages start at €1.55 within Europe, and around €2.50 for other countries. Post office business hours in Italy are from 8:30am to 2:00pm from Monday to Friday, with closing times at Saturday and the last day of the month at 12 noon. In general, larger post offices in bigger cities and in tourist areas keep longer hours than those in local towns. Also note that business hours in the south might be different than the north, with longer hours at night, especially in summer! If you want to send packages you might try faster and more reliable/efficient private courier companies like TNT, UPS or DHL.
