The next time that you pay a visit to the Le Marche region in Italy, consider popping to the nearby Rimini to see the delights that Italia in Miniatura has to offer. Less than an hour and a half’s drive from Marche, Rimini is on The Adriatic coast and has many things to offer, including crisp, clean, well-maintained beaches. But just inland from the coast of Rimini is ‘Italia in Miniatura’, which is a theme park not only aimed at children, but suitable for the whole family.
Many of the activities on offer in this theme park which will interest all of you, but are especially suitable for keeping your children entertained on the few days when the weather is not perfect! Activities run through most months of the year and include ‘Miele Rondinini’, which is based around the production of honey.
You will get the opportunity to witness a bee collecting nectar; you will enter a hive, witnessing how it is organised, and will be able to see bees in action, discovering how they transform the nectar into honey. Following this demonstration, you will be able to taste different varieties of honey.
Visited by more than 500,000 people to date, Italia in Miniatura has been in operation since 1970, and the centre of the park consists of over 270 miniature versions of Italian and European buildings, all carefully reproduced to scale. The park is set in a spectacular huge open-air exhibition, covering a total area of 85,000 square metres.
