Via IV Novembre 35 (Duomo di Rimini), Rimini, Emilia-Romagna
Church · 8 tips and reviews
The Telegraph: 11am: Walk through the piazza, on to Via IV Novembre. You’ll pass a section of the original Roman road before reaching the Tempio Malatestiano; inside you’ll find frescoes and a crucifix by Giotto.
The Telegraph: 1pm: Pop to Fellini’s favourite square – the Piazzetta dei Teatini, by the cathedral – before returning to the main Corso and heading north and then on to the Tiberius Bridge, completed in 20AD.
The Telegraph: On the other side lies Borgo San Giuliano, Rimini’s most beguiling district. Begin with lunch at Nud e Crud (Via Tiberio, nudecrud.it; mains from £7), which serves traditional piade cuisine.
