The Province of Rimini (Italian: Provincia di Rimini) is a province in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Its largest town and capital is the city of Rimini.

The province of Rimini, with a long touristic tradition, is well known by the beach resorts of Rimini, Riccione, Bellaria-Igea Marina, Misano Adriatico and Cattolica, found over 30 km (19 mi) along the coast of the Adriatic Sea.

History[change | change source]

The province of Rimini was created in 1992 with parts of the former province of Forlì that changed its name to the present province of Forlì-Cesena.

After a referendum in 2006, the municipalities of Casteldelci, Maiolo, Novafeltria, Pennabilli, San Leo, Sant'Agata Feltria and Talamello were transferred from the Province of Pesaro and Urbino (Marche) to the Province of Rimini on 15 August 2009.
