Rimini tradition draws nourishment from its ancient Villages, Borgo San Giuliano, Borgo Sant'Andrea and Borgo San Giovanni. These are identifying places of the city, where authentic traditions are still alive, illustrious people from Rimini lived and Romagna tradition food can still be tasted.
Borgo San Giuliano, founded around the year one thousand, was the old fisherman district. The atmosphere that you breathe here is load of poetry and grandeur. All you need is walking through its narrow alleys, the low houses, the pastel-coloured walls, with flowered balconies and colorful murals, to realize it immediately. You walk in silence (the zone is a pedestrian area) while breathing the anarchic and creative spirit that characterized its inhabitants. A small 'rive gauche', connected to the city by the Ponte di Tiberio (Tiberius Bridge). This district is also an ideal location for aperitifs and for tasting the delicious food offered by its numerous and characteristic restaurants and taverns. Every two years in September, in even years, the spirit of the village takes shape in the 'Festa de' borg': an unmissable appointment. It takes place every two odd years, the Borgo Sant'Andrea Festival, which, on occasion of the Patron Saint's day St. Gaudentius, invites everyone to a trip in time to rediscover the roots of this place rising outside Porta Montanara (St. Andrew’s Door), between the ancient lavatoio (wash house), the foro boario (Forum Boarium) and the antica fornace Fabbri (ancient Fabbri Furnace). In the month of July, on occasion of the anniversary of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Borgo San Giovanni Festival takes place, an ideal moment to discover the village that developed outside the Arco di Augusto (Arch of Augustus) and along the Via Flaminia. Borgo Marina is the entrance to the city from the sea with the ancient Porta Galliana (Galliana’s Door), the walls on Porto Canale and the Via Gambalunga.
