Museo della Città

Lonely Planet review

This is currently Rimini’s only museum until the Fellini Foundation gets its act together and reopens the Fellini Museum. In the meantime, aficionados of the great director can browse original and reproduced copies of his imaginative doodling in his Libro dei Miei Sogni (Book of My Dreams). Otherwise, this rambling museum is best known for its Roman section.

Spread over several rooms with excellent bilingual (Italian/English) signage are finds from two nearby Roman villas, including splendid mosaics, a rare and exquisite representation of fish rendered in coloured glass, and the world's largest collection of Roman surgical instruments.
