This square is also known to be one of the main places where Federico Fellini's Amarcord movie took place.  When you pass this square, you will then arrive to Piazza Cavour, center of Rimini's political life. Walking along the adjacent street, you will reach another piece of the Roman history in the city: the famous Surgeon's House. This special building dates back to the 2nd century A.D. and hides a "taberna medica," where the largest collection of medical instruments from the Roman world is kept.  Continue your tour towards the Vecchia Pescheria (old fish market), a maze of narrow streets characterized by the presence of some old stone benches which were used in the past to sell the fish. Walking along the last stretch of Corso d'Augusto, you will then arrive to Ponte di Tiberio, a 2000-year-old bridge connecting the city to the old village of the town's fishermen.  When you cross the bridge, you can't miss a quick tour of the small village of San Giuliano.

The dolphin show was more interesting 3 years ago. But that doesn't mean that it was bad now. The show may have been shortened by Corona. But I'm not sure. At first the admitting lady didn't even want to try to scan our tickets. Apparently GetYourGuide doesn't book very often. But everything went smoothly. Food a bit overpriced. But if you take something with you, you save a lot of money. Unfortunately, we missed the parrot show because the show times on the website weren't right, so we wanted to reserve a good place in the dolphinarium. The distance was not despite Corona. But only vaccinated / genesis or with a test come in. We liked everything very much and would go again.

Through the app it was very easy to book tickets, plus I received messages from time to time if the meeting point would change. The very nice miniature Italy, all excellently cared for down to the smallest detail. Recommended for those with quiet children who appreciate simple things, while for those with wild children who always need to do things or keep busy I would focus on where else to take them. Apart from the cold we liked it a lot

As always, the service offered was excellent, the service of the structure was not optimal, the staff of the structure did not recognize the vouchers at first, after my life's insistence, I made him understand that we were in possession of electronic tickets and not just online booking. Staff not too attentive to cds they had in hand

On the whole quite OK, better book without lunch and take something with you and save the money (very long waiting time and not really appealing "PASTA"). The staff was always friendly and helpful! The dolphin show was awesome! We had a nice day.

Simon from Offenburg,, Germany It was super nice the whole park you can only recommend very clean everything, very many interesting topics. The people were very nice too. Food was great, the shows were perfect. Will be back just perfect.
