Castel Sismondo

Little remains of this historic castle built by Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta in 1437 in Rimini. Today's visitor will see only a small part of the great fortification on the Piazza Malatesta, but the construction still has its large square towers and solid walls intact. The original plans were that the castle should look like a fort dominated by a large keep and surrounded by a deep dyke with drawbridges. It served as a prison under the rule of the papacy, then again during the bombardments of the last war. Today, it is also home to the Fellini Museum, which makes for an indulgent treat for movie buffs.

Palazzo del Podestà

The Palazzetto del Podestà was built in 1334. It has undergone numerous transformations over the course of the Centuries. It was barbarously changed, along with the Palazzo dell'Arengo, and partly demolished when it was included into a 17th-century building. The older building's Gothic shape was largely hidden by the newer Lombard lines. The entire piazza was restored to its former glory by the famous architect Gaspare Rastelli between 1912 and 1922. There are three Gothic frontal arches. They used to hang criminals from a rope in the center arch. The floor above has battlements and five small windows. Nowadays the Palazzo del Podestà is used as an exhibition space by the city's museums.

Galassi is the perfect choice for the style-conscious men. Not only is the store located in the heart of the city, but patrons can also choose from a number of different upscale brands like Hugo Boss, Gant and Missoni. The store stocks up on suits and shirts as well as sweaters and other accessories. In operation since 1922, and displaying about 12 brands, Galassi has certainly garnered raves over the years for its exceptional service and quality of goods.

Parco Marecchia

The Marecchia Park is also known as the Parco XXV Aprile. It is around 235,000 square meters and is the biggest park in Rimini. The park stretches from the Ponte di Tiberio up to the crossroads between Via Marecchiese and Via Nuova Circonvallazione. You can see the parks full extent by looking north from the bridge. The park can be entered on both sides. There are entrances at all the crossings on Via Dario Campana on the west side and on Via XXIII Settembre on the east (up to the Marecchia bypass bridge). The park's name comes from the river Marecci which runs alongside the Ausa river for a long stretch. There is a large children's play area inside the park as well as a football pitch for the "Delfini", tennis courts and a running training track which can be used by everyone. The park is also used as a training ground by the Rimini frisbee team and by all the town's joggers. There are some attractive fairs which take place in the park including the Festa dei Giovani (Youth Festival) on May 1 each year. There is also the Focheraccia on the evening of March 17 each year to celebrate the feast day of St Joseph.
