Along the canal are some important city sites such as the Maritime Museum, Piazza Pisacane with the monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi, and the "Marino Moretti" House Museum.
The medieval town of Santarcangelo is located on Colle Giove, a short distance from Rimini. It is rich in historical monuments such as the Campanone, the Rocca Malatestiana, the Arch of Pope Clement XIV and Ganganelli Square. It also features a veritable underground world of caves carved out of sandstone and clay that were once used to store food or take refuge during sieges.
On the border between Romagna and Le Marche lies the ancient town of Gradara. So picturesque that it seems to be immersed in a distant world full of magic, it is the perfect place to taste a cuisine that undergoes the charm of the two lands, that of the Marche and that of Romagna.
