Filmmaker Federico Fellini is considered a master of dreamscapes, and it is no wonder he drew much of his inspiration from Grand Hotel Rimini. This romantic national monument and new member of the Select Hotels collection basks in fresh sea air in the town of Rimini on Italy's eastern coast. You will have a difficult time deciding which is most impressive - the property's 4,000 square meters of parkland, its guest rooms showcasing 18th century Venetian and French antiques, or the private hotel beach on the Adriatic coast.
With its historic sites, beautiful beaches and
abundance of ways to play - sailing and windsurfing are at the top of the list - Grand Hotel Rimini captures the vibrant spirit of the region. Surrounding hills are dappled with castles and fortresses dating back to the Middle Ages, while tradition lives on in the town's medieval streets. From excellent Sangiovese wines to the Rimini Golf Club to the nearby Fellini Museum, there is truly something here for everyone.
