Kathryn Burrington, who writes a wonderful blog called Travel with Kat , has generously offered to write a guest post for us about Rimini, a town on the Adriatic Coast. I haven’t spent much time in this area, but it looks wonderful…there is a never ending supply of amazing things to see in Italy.
Sunrise over Rimini…by Kathryn Burrington
Last year I spent a wonderful few days in Rimini as part of a prject organised by the Emilia Romagna Tourist Board called Blogville. They invited bloggers from all over the world to come and visit this beautiful region of Italy.
They provided accommodation and took us out on a couple of wonderful excursions. It was great to see the countryside around Rimini, which is more wild and rugged than the rolling hills of Tuscany and we passed through many pretty villages, visited cheese makers and we even had a cooking class in a remote farmhouse.
Rimini is well known for its beaches and party atmosphere, but I fell in love with old Rimini, its quiet cobbled streets and the ancient Roman bridge, Ponte di Tiberio.
Our apartment was by the beach and each morning from our balcony you could see the sunrise across the sea, or at least we could have if we had been up. Luckily, one morning I did just that and I hope you agree it was well worth the early start.
After taking a ridiculous number of photos I couldn’t resist an early morning swim…bliss! Then it was back to the apartment for breakfast before another wonderful day exploring Emilia Romagna.
Soon I will be heading back to Italy and I’ll be staying in Bologna as part of this year’s BlogVille and I can’t wait to share more of Italy with you.
