If you think that it is possible to see all the main sights of Italy for one whole day, you make a mistake. I recommend you visit the Park “Italy in miniature”, which is located in Rimini. There, in the area of 85 square kilometers, you can see 270 famous architectural sights of Italy and Europe. The only remark – all of them are 25 times smaller than their originals.
The creator of the park was a businessman Ivo Rambaldi, born in Ravenna. That is why the first monument of the park was the basilica of Saint Apollinaria, it is based in the homeland of Rambaldi. The whole park was built in Rimini in 1970.
On the entrance to the park, you can see the statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi on a horse. Further, you find the Rome Colosseum and the famous Florentine Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, hold the Leaning Tower of Pisa, admire the Milan Cathedral and the Turin Mole Antonelliana. You may not have time to visit Etna volcano, but you can do it here, in the park. There is its small copy, which demonstrates its power from time to time. You can also find a small version of Venice and even take a ride through the famous channels on a small gondola.
Apart from the miniatures of Italian sighs, you also recall the key monuments of the European architecture, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Acropolis in Athens, or the German Neuschwanstein Castle!
You also can bring children with you, because they will be happy there: a lot of attractions, a maze, and water cannons are open to them. By the way, the rides on them are free, you should pay just for the entrance to the park.
Also for little guests in the park “Italy in miniature” is built a Lunapark, where joyful animators show the kids some experiments of physics. And in the attraction called “Pinnochio”, where they can meet the characters of this tale.
Do you want to have lunch? You can take food in any of the various cafes and restaurants, located on the territory of the park.
