The Misano World Circuit first hosted a motorcycle Grand Prix in 1980 and the circuit, now named in memory of Marco Simoncelli, has become a regular fixture on the MotoGP™ calendar since 2007.
The Gran Premio Nolan del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia-Romagna pays homage to a land that in the history of motorsport has seen the birth and growth of extraordinary champions. The event scheduled from October 22nd to 24th is the result of a virtuous path that sees the Emilia-Romagna Region, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation together with the ICE (Italian Trade Agency) join forces with Santamonica SpA and Dorna Sports, under the aegis of the Italian Motorcycle Federation.
This union constitutes a great event for the Motor Valley becoming an ideal tool for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Economic Cooperation and ICE Agency to tell the world about Italian excellence.
Hosting the MotoGP™ World Championship in Misano will be a further step in this collaboration that will count on a great testimonial of Made in Italy, Valentino Rossi, who will greet the “yellow wall” from all over the world and the millions of fans who have followed him with great love in so many years of success in the Riders’ Land.
An event not only sporting but also a powerful marketing and territorial promotion tool that will promote the communication to the world of its values of a district that thanks to its history, its companies, its champions and events has also become a leading producer of one of the most important European tourist destinations.
Emilia-Romagna, for its part, boasts a district without equal in the world, where brands such as Dallara, Ducati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Pagani were born and became famous, and where private collections, international circuits and specialized training centers work in synergy to enhance this heritage on an international level, also from a tourist point of view.
The Motor Valley brings together this reality based on a total of 16,500 companies with more than 66,326 employees and an export of almost 5 billion euros, as well as a real tourist heritage that has attracted, in 2019 alone, more than 2 million visitors.
There are at least fifteen riders across all three classes who call the circuit their home, starting with the nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi. Now, there are even some of the youngest riders on the grid who travel no more than a handful of kilometres to the circuit. That’s all thanks to the track becoming a reference point for training and testing throughout the year for riders.
There are more than a thousand hotels dotted in and around the city of Rimini, so reserving a place to stay should be no problem.
Expect to pay over €200 a night for luxury hotels, €150-£100 for a standard three or four-star hotels or under €100 per night for a budget hotel. Many of the hotels offer nice swimming pools and spas, and even decent restaurants onsite.
Another option is camping, and there are numerous campsites up and down the Riviera. Further afield, north and south of Rimini on the Adriatic Coast there are lots of towns with their own ranges of hotels, or moving inland as you search for somewhere can provide even greater opportunities and often at a cheaper rate than on the beachfront.
San Marino is also a big draw for sightseers and offers many additional options in terms of hotels, from luxury five-star to boutique, mid-range and low budget. There is something for everyone.
San Marino is visited by many an intrigued tourist each year - wanting to discover the secrets of this ancient, tiny hilltop republic.
San Marino’s waxworks museum, its restored medieval-style citadel, the surprising 1960s Giovanni Michelucci church and the rocce castles along the elevated ridges of the Città di San Marino are all worth checking out.
As for Rimini city, it has a population of 150,000 and has plenty of life all year round, with a huge amount of cultural heritage, in addition to being the focal point of this summer holiday hotspot.
Indeed, Rimini’s tourist office sets out a ‘Roman Itinerary’ of sites to be visited (The Amphitheatre, Tiberius Bridge and Augustus Arch for example), before setting out a Medieval Itinerary, Renaissance Itinerary and even a Fellini Itinerary for fans of the late, great Italian film director Federico Fellini, who was a Rimini native.
However, if you only want to lounge on the sand or drink cocktails and enjoy great Italian food by the beach you can do just that, and you will be spoiled for choice up and down the Riviera.
If you want a break from the beach then head inland to some of the province’s many pretty villages, such as Santarcangelo di Romagna or San Leo, which are amongst the most picturesque in Italy.
1- With some serious footfall in the busiest summer months, San Marino and Rimini get very busy, so it can be pleasant to visit outside the most hectic summer period.
2- There are many guided tours of San Marino’s main sights, whilst going solo and driving or riding into the Città is no big issue - once you are there it is easy to get around the compact city center on foot. There is a very Italian feel to San Marino, but it is a completely independent nation and the locals do not like to be classed as Italians.
3- Once you are back in Italy, you must try one of the piadinas from Rimini, widely available in street kiosks. Rimini piadina is a thin and crispy bread which can be filled with ham and Italian cheese, salads or even chocolate.
4- The Adriatic Coast’s “pesce azzurro” fish – often mackerel, mullet or sprats cooked on the grill or BBQ - just have to be sampled. The Rimini province sits within the Emilia-Romagna region which specializes in an array of pasta dishes featuring Tagliatelle, Lasagne, Ravioli or Tortellini, so do try some of those, and why not accompany your meal with a glass of Sangiovese red wine?
