The Other Romagna-Bike Journey in the Malatesta Middle Ages Self-Guided 6 days

If thinking about Romagna the Adriatic coast, its shores, holidays under umbrellas all lined up, it is in the hinterland that you discover attractions and landscapes alternative to those of the most common holiday imaginary. Beautiful hills, and above them a succession of villages between Emilia Romagna and Marche, some with well-known names (Gradara stands out), others less known, but all with the common trait of the wealth of history, art, traditions. And if the center of Rimini already offers walks through alleys and important historical sites, from the Arch of Augustus to the Tiberius bridge to the Malatesta Castel Sismondo, the province of Rimini is home to several medieval villages, which are definitely worth visiting, both with short trips during a beach holiday, either by choosing an itinerary of a few days between nature, castles, ancient legends and stories of alchemy, without forgetting the food and wine, the pride of the area.
