Yep, new maps in google maps.

I just found my dad going home (in Alicante) with his car in Street View.

The photo seems to be taken this summer.

And children below 8, who don't know anything about history and geography, surely have more fun building sand castles on the beach.

Seriously, I wouldn't sleep in Rimini to explore the area. It would be more expensive and less scenic than in a B&B or "agriturismo" in a small village.
I've been to the small village of San Leo, around 20km from Rimini (and even closer to San Marino), where there is a famous castle on the top of a rock, that definitively deserves a stop if you are in the area. Geographic curiosity, it's the only place in Italy, together with some nearby villages, that changed region in Italy (from Marche to Emilia Romagna in 2009).

Thanks for the tips.

I just found Civita di Bagnoregio, it looks stunning.
So this could make me rethink my trip, so that after Perugia I don't drive back to San Marino area, but to Bagnoregio or stay in Perugia over night.

And next day visit Civita di Bagnoregio, then drive to Bologna and so on...

Civita di Bagnoregio is worth a trip. But it's very small, a couple of hours (dining included) and you are done. I suggest you couple it with Orvieto: stunningly beautiful, and only few km away...

Thanks for the tip

1. But what do you think, is day 2 doable, Ferrara - Ravenna - San Marino? First 2 should definitely be, but I wouldn't want to miss out on San Marino. How much time should I plan for each of these 3? They don't seem to be large, but there is some walking involved

2. For day 3 I am thinking to do a short walk in Rimini to at least get a quick look of the sea and after that drive towards Urbino, then add Assisi (it looks really great) on the way between Urbino and Perugia.

3. Or is there a nice place with access to the sea on the way from Ravenna to San Marino (the road goes on the coast)?

I don't think so. I'd divide those three cities in 2 different days. If you want to keep it in one day, I'd suggest you remove Ferrara (it's very nice, but Ravenna is better* and San Marino is a must go).

*well, it depends. Ferrara has a marvelous castle and some very nice palaces. Ravenna is more ancient, some amazing byzantine churches there.

Mmm, not really. That seaside section is a huge vacation-metropolis with ugly hotels and restaurants that look all the same.

I guess if you really want to see that ugly seaside, Rimini is the "less worse" option...

Btw. Which city in Romania is worth a weekend trip by car? I was thinking Timisoara.

You could do it 3-in-one: Timisoara, Arad & Oradea. They are all close to the border.

They are not that large and with so many tourist attractions. If you feel you want to relax a little more you could choose 2 out of 3.

Uh, I will have to rethink everything again. I wouldn't like to miss either Ferrara or Ravenna or San Marino. Also those places south are great. Maybe I can let go of Bologna or Lake Garda, the last one is closer to me, I can drive there also in a weekend if I want...

Since I am planning to drive to Croatian riviera two weeks later, I can see the sea then in much better light
Actually, in Rimini I would have wanted to see that very old stone bridge.

If you plan a weekend trip it's doable, without having to stress to much. If you leave on Friday after work, it's perfect. You can accomodate in Timisoara and visit the city by night, then visit it by day, then drive to Arad, and stay there over night. Final day drive and visit Oradea and head back home.

Or the other way around

The only pitty in Timisoara is that important parts of the city center (but not all nice places, there are some a little outside the direct center) are under renovation, so you would have to also walk along construction sites. But you may see some nice ruins from Turkish times. Some pictures here http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post111748161
