I liked this place coz it stands since Malatesta times even it is a little grey for me. There are some parts of an ancient wall.

Interesting, if not inspiring. Not really worth going out of one's way to visit. When we were there it was open in the mornings and late afternoons.

A building that is considerated as the first renaissance temple in Italy, and that appears in all Art History books! A great surprise when I first saw it. The inside is beautifully decorated, many masterpieces (frescoes, sculptures,...).

Art historians will tell you about the importance this building has in the history of Renaissance architecture, and they are right to attest to its greatness. But that is not the only reason to visit. The gleaming white exterior is mirrored by the overwhelming sculptural monuments on the interior. The building expresses a beauty, balance and refinement rare in other... More

Rimini is a small, relaxing and beautiful city. With its historic centre, it is a great place to visit. However, the highlight here is the Tempio Malatestiano. Far from any hustle and bustle, this place is full of great artworks. You will recognize it with its elegant façade and rich decorations. Yes, when you enter the place, you will see... More

It is really amazing and well preserved. Easily to reach with bus Nr 11 from any hotel in Rimini. Just get the right direction to RIMINI (the opposite of RICCIONE) and get out at the last stop... If you need tyo ask for DIRECTIONS, ask for DUOMO, every local man knows it under this name. It was built on order... More

Though unfinished, one of the first real Renaissance churches. Incredibly beautiful on the outside, the inside is also stunning, though very simple. What impressed me most is to see how Leon Battista Alberti took ideas straight from the nearby Arco di Augusto improving them with a new architectural meaning.

I can stand hours admiring the Crucifix of Giotto and not feel bored. Do not forget that is a cathedral and that some locals (mostly old people) mind if some parts of your body are not covered..... in few words pay some respect by entering a church.
