Corso d’Augusto, Piazza Tre Martiri, via Garibaldi and via Gambalunga are the key areas in the historic centre where to begin your shopping tour. Along the axis of the ancient cardo and decumanus, as well as along the red ring of the new squares that 'embrace' the historic centre, you can find designer labels of fashion, but also handcrafted creations and unique pieces 'handmade' by local designers. Then there are cafés, meeting places, bookshops and the most exclusive shop windows. But the walk for shopping enthusiasts does not finish here: the promenade of Rimini, especially in the summer, offers temptation for purchases of all tastes.

And, in and around Rimini, there are the outlets and shopping centres, the footwear districts, such as that of San Mauro Pascoli where the Italian footwear industry of excellence is concentrated with its most famous brands.

Not to forget are the many annual and seasonal markets and stalls, that colour the piazzas of the historic centre or the 15 kilometres of promenade from Miramare to Torre Pedrera.

For the shopping to 'savour', you can visit the Mercato Coperto (Covered Market) in the heart of the city, a stone's throw from the Tempio Malatestiano (via Castelfidardo, open Monday to Saturday, from 7 am to 7.45 pm). Not only inside the covered market, where there are more than 100 stalls selling fish, fruit and vegetables, bakeries and butchers, but also in the outer perimeter, where there is a high concentration of traditional shops, ideal for a quality food and wine tour.
