Many visitors get inspired by Rimini's athletic Roman forerunners, and start feeling the urge to participate in sports. Luckily, there are many opportunities to do so.
Miniature Golfing: Rimini’s Indiana Golf, located in the Riccione district, is made up of eighteen intricately designed holes with themes relating to Italian culture and kitsch. Open from the early afternoon until late at night, Indiana Golf is an offbeat way to begin a night on the town with some friends.
Aquafan Waterpark: This is one of Europe’s largest water parks, and it boasts some of the steepest slides and laziest rivers around. There’s an “Antarctic Beach,” a whirlpool, some extreme rafting adventures and a few gentler pools for children to play safely. It is open all summer long so so you can cool off in style! Unfortunately the
Aquafan web page is in Italian, but
Google's translation can help you get the gist of it.
Horseback Riding: The Cooperativa Centofiori, located in Vallecchio, Montescudo (a short distance from Rimini) is designed for both indoor and outdoor riding. Amateurs can take lessons or guided tours of the countryside, while the more experienced can practice competitive riding in one of the cooperative’s two rings.
- World Beach Ultimate Cup: Every Easter weekend, Ultimate Frisbee players and freestyle specialists descend on Rimini for the largest Beach Ultimate tournament in the World. The WBUC has been running for 18 years and attracts the best athletes from the U.S., Europe and as far afield as New Zealand. With over 1500 world-class players, the WUBC kicks off Rimini's tourist season in style. A great way to spend time discovering a very different side of this historical and very beautiful region.
