Nice, cosy place in the heart of the small town of Rimini
Jul 2021 • Family
Very nice place with beautiful and ancient buildings around, terraces and impressive statue in the middle. Walk around at night and admire the amazing ancient Pescheria beautifully illuminated.

Beautiful historic square
Nov 2019
Very nice and interesting place. Arriving at this beautiful square, they immediately catch the eye of the beautiful palace. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The history of this square as well as Tre Martiri Square is interesting. Piazza Cavour is the political and economic center of the city since the beginning of the thirteenth century, when it gained importance with the construction of the palace dell'Arengo. The square is beautiful because it is eventful. It is possible to admire the beautiful Palazzo dell'Arengo (1204), where in medieval times justice court was administered and the assembly of the Municipality met. In the square we can enjoy two more beautiful palaces Palazzo del Podestà and Palazzo Garampi. At the center of the square, on the other hand, stands the imposing bronze statues of Pope Paul V, by Nicolò Cordier and Sebastiano Sebastiani, a monument erected by the citizens in gratitude to the Pope in 1614. The square also houses the famous Teatro Amintore Galli in neoclassical style, inaugurated in 1857 by Giuseppe Verdi, as well as the historic Library and the interesting Fish Market building. In the middle of the square there is the beautiful Fontana della Pigna. We enjoyed every look, every step, beautiful square.

#1 Sight in Rimini
Oct 2019
Palazzo dell’Arengo is the main square in Rimini. There are three palaces on one side of the square. The earliest building dates back to the early 1200s. The more modern Palazzo Garampi is office to the city’s mayor. The Pigna Fountain is in the middle of the square, and it dates back to the mid-1500s. ,

Great place
Aug 2019 • Couples
Lots of people here all day, some days there are “kids marked” kids selling their used toys. Cafes and bars are good. Staff at the bars are very polite. A must see place, when you are in Rimini

Magnificent, in a great contrast with the sea coast
Jul 2019 • Family
If you are not a great fan of visiting historic places, go there anyway. The gelatoria on the piazza is truly considered the best in the city. Enjoy your ice-cream and absorb the view of grandeur and fame)

Great sights away from the beach
Jun 2019 • Solo
Definitely worth the visit if you are in the area and a great change from the beach. Very classic Italian and some history here, so worth the walk out to explore a bit.

ONE OF TWO MAIN SQUARES
Mar 2019 • Couples
Home to many grand palaces, the Pigna fountain and a statue of Pope Paul V. However, the most imposing aspect of the square is the old fish market constructed in 1743. This square is a haven for locals to stroll or sit and converse or just watch as life walks past.

This is most interesting square in Rimini. There are many medieval buildings and a garmonious fountain. In the cafe on the square you can eat.

Rimini's historic main square
Oct 2018 • Friends
Cavour was the 19th century statesman usually credited with uniting Italy in to one state. The square has a fountain and leads off to the old fish market and is partly lined with cafes and shops. The town hall is also there.
