It is the undoubted beauty of the Bel Paese that inspired the Italia in Miniatura park in Rimini.

Italia in Miniatura is a 3D reverie that celebrates Italy’s historical, architectural, and cultural heritage by recreating it in amazingly realistic detail.
Italia in Miniatura was founded in 1970 by the visionary entrepreneur Ivo Rambaldi, who traveled 27,000 km to visit and measure (literally! he carried a tape measure) churches, squares, bridges, and monuments.

Today, Italia in Miniatura is much bigger, with several new attractions, in keeping with the park’s edutainment mission and the interests of families and schoolchildren.

The park currently features 300 Italian and European architectural wonders, faithfully reproduced on a scale of 1:25 to 1:50. But there is much more than miniatures: learning has never been so much fun!

With its 827 hectares of astonishing and evocative beauty, criss-crossed by 46 km of canals, more than 2,000 flamingos and 100 species of birds, the Salt Pans of Cervia are a unique park. A vast expanse of water and salt, where history and culture are inextricably linked to local tradition, just a mile from the bustling Adriatic coast of Romagna.

At any time of the year, a visit at sunset will reveal a hypnotic landscape, seemingly suspended in time and space with its total stillness. Let the minutes pass slowly (why not consider a bike ride?) and you will find yourself on another planet.

During the summer, guided tours are organized to witness the harvesting of the salt, which is still done in the old traditional way, with wooden tools, and the harvesters themselves explain their work and the special characteristics of Cervia’s “sweet” salt.
