Outside of the summer holiday season, Rimini is a relatively quiet average-sized Italian town, hence its recently modernised station lacks some of the facilities typically found at more important railway stations.
The station does have a cafe, but it has no left luggage facilities - though we have seen reports suggesting that bags can be stored in the tourist info office.
In common with many Italian stations, the access to many of the trains - all of those which depart from binari 2 to 5, is by a passage way under the tracks.
However at Rimini stairs provide the only access between this page way and binari 2 to 5.
Binario 2 is where the express trains from destinations to the north such as Bologna, Milano and Venezia, typically arrive.
Binario 1 has step free access to and from the trains, as it is beside the main station building, it is typically used by express trains, the Frecce and IC services, heading to Milano and Venezia via Bologna.
The railway station in Rimini in effect divides the town, to the east is the beach area with its hotels and tourist facilities and to the west is the pedestrianised old town area.
It is a 10 - 20 min walk along the street named Via Dante Alighieri which leads off straight ahead from the main exit from Rimini station.
Local bus line/route 1 goes from the stop in the bus station, adjacent to the rail station, labelled 'Rimini Centro' and it follows a circular route around the edge of the old town area.
The beach is around a 20 - 30 min walk from Rimini station.
The most obvious route is:
Though bus routes/lines 14 and 15 go from a stop across the street from the station to the beach area, Marina Centro - look for the stop with the buses going to the 'mare'.
Though neither service is particularly frequent.
