1. Bridge of TiberiusBook Ticket*
The Bridge of Tiberius or Bridge of Augustus is a Roman bridge in Rimini, Italy. The bridge features five semicircular arches made of white Istrian stone with an average span length of ca. 8 m. Above the arches lied niches framed with pilasters carrying entablatures and pediments. They were framed on the arch bridge's walls. Modillions supported cornices were covered by a coping at the top. An inscription commemorating the construction of the bridges was located near the coping. Construction work started during Augustus' reign and was finished under his successor Tiberius in 20 AD; an inscription thus calls the structure as "given by both emperors". The bridge was the only crossing of the Marecchia not destroyed by the retreating German army during the Battle of Rimini as it was judged militarily pointless. The bridge is still open to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, with the exception of heavy goods vehicles.
2. Tempio MalatestianoBook Ticket*
The Malatesta temple, usually indicated by citizens such as the Duomo and since 1809 which has become a cathedral with the title of Santa Colomba, is the main Catholic place of cult of Rimini. Renewed completely under the lordship of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, with the contribution of artists such as Leon Battista Alberti, Matteo de 'Meals, Agostino di Duccio and Piero della Francesca, is although incomplete, the key work of the Rimini Renaissance and one of the most significant architectures of the Italian fifteenth century in general.
3. Domus del chirurgo
The domus del chirurgo is a Roman house of the second half of the second century, discovered in 1989 in Rimini in Piazza Luigi Ferrari, and opened to the public on December 7, 2007; mosaics, frescoes and finds have been found here, including one of the most complete series of surgical instruments from the Roman period, preserved at the Museum of the city of Rimini. The archaeological site of the domus del chirurgo also brings to light subsequent archaeological stratigraphy, including the walls of the imperial age, a palatial dwelling and part of an early medieval Byzantine house.
4. Anfiteatro Romano
The Roman Amphitheater of Rimini was erected during the second century AD and used essentially for gladiatorial shows. For the municipium of Ariminum, formerly located on the northern border of the Roman Republic and which was already enriched by a theater for performances and the famous Tiberius Bridge, the amphitheater marked a step forward in the "rank" of the city. As was tradition for this type of buildings, the amphitheater was built peripherally to the city, taking advantage, in this case, of the proximity of the sea for a more spectacular emotional rendering.
5. Arco d'Augusto
The Arch of Augustus is a gate in the former city wall of Rimini, Italy. The arch was dedicated to the Emperor Augustus by the Roman Senate in 27 BC and is one of the oldest Roman arches which survives to this day. It signaled the end of the via Flaminia, which connected the cities of Romagna to Rome, and spans the modern Corso d'Augusto, which led to the beginning of another road, the via Emilia, which ran northwest to Piacenza.
