The boroughs

Rimini’s pride and tradition draw lifeblood from its boroughs Borgo San Giuliano, Borgo Sant’Andrea, Borgo San Giovanni and Borgo Marina (the latter sat on the right of the port but was destroyed during the last world war).

The 'spirit' that characterises each of Rimini’s boroughs forms the basis of the celebrations that are held in the respective districts. These festivities began as simple neighbourhood get-togethers but over the years they have become truly unmissable events. The best-known feast has been held in Borgo San Giuliano in September every other year for over twenty years (on even years e.g. 2004, 2006). Each edition of the Festa de’ Borg (tel. 0541.53159) celebrates a specific theme and relives the events and characters that have marked history in this corner of Rimini and the entire city. There are shows and choreography, entertainment and gastronomic temptations on every street corner in the borough, which is situated just across Tiberius Bridge, (the Istria stone bridge begun by Augustus and terminated by Tiberius), from the town centre. For a step back in time to Fellini’s Rimini, we recommend a walk through the tiny squares and narrow streets where there are beautiful murals dedicated to the Maestro and Giulietta Masina.

The ideal month to discover Borgo San Giovanni, which could once only be reached by passing under the ancient Arch of Augustus, is July as this is when the traditional local festivities are held. The borough has many sacred and artistic sites waiting to be discovered and a fair with arts and crafts, music, shows and tasty gastronomic delicacies.

When it celebrates its own festival, even Borgo Sant’Andrea, just behind Piazza Mazzini, steps back in time ('Quei de’ borg ad Sant’Andrea', tel. 0541.782212) thanks to the reproduction of scenes that have marked its history including Porta Montanara (Montanara Gate), the Lavatoio (Wash-house), Foro Boario (Boario Forum), Piazza dei Gessi square and Fornace Fabbri (Fabbri Furnace).
