Is Rimini worth a day trip first week of October?

We will be staying in Bologna. One day trip to Parma. Other trip would be to Rivini to see the beach . What can we expect in terms of weather, and have things along the beach shut down by then? Maybe just 1 day trip from Bologna and skip Rimini/Ravenna?

Dear Dean,

In October as day trip worth to Ravenna, Ferrara, Modena... not to Rimini. The beach isn't so nice to see in autumn and probably will be too cold to make a sunbath or to swim. The center is nice with historical places and ruins, but the other cities in Emilia Romagna are better, IMHO.

Bye

I would also go to Modena, Parma or Ravenna. For the same reasons.

Also for the fact that the centre is half hour walk from the sea front in Rimini.

Rimini worths a day trip but not to see the beach but the Duomo, which is one of hte most beautiful and important examples of the Italian Renaissance ( also, a magnificent fresco by Piero della Francesca ). Also, the roman-age Arco di Augusto, and Ponte di Tiberio are a must-see.

You can also fdin important exhibition in Castel Sismondo, the castle in the center built by Malatesta.

The historic center is very nice and full of high-level shops: you can reach Rimini from Bologna by train ( very frequent) and simply walk from the train station to the center in less than 10 minutes. Rimini, with Milan, is one of the trendiest destination for shopping in Italy.

Another possibility could be half a day in Rimini and half a day in Cesena ( in the same train line).
