Historic seaside resort
Seven kilometres north of Rimini, you can relax on the long beach of Torre Pedrera. The promenade, dotted with bars, restaurants and amusement arcades for the little ones, has turned the small town into a popular tourist destination since the 1960s.
The town gets its name from a Saracen tower, commissioned by the Papal State in 1673 to protect the Romagna coast from pirate raids and Turkish invasions. The fortification is visible from the beach and looks down over a two-kilometre-long sandy stretch regenerated by the green project 'Parco del Mare', which aims to redevelop the area and safeguard swimming.
The small seaside town of Torre Pedrera between the beach and green hills and is an ideal destination for cyclists thanks to the flat roads.
The town also stands out for its culinary specialities, with flavours ranging from dishes based on seafood from the Adriatic Sea to the renowned fresh pasta of Romagna.
