Italy in Miniature / Italia in Miniatura is a short bus ride from Rimini and, as its name suggests, is a series of mini replicas of Italian landmarks. Other European cities also have their own models. There’s a full size replica of a typical Italian town square or piazza as well as the chance to have a mini gondola ride.
Some of the models are familiar from visits to Milan, Rome and Turin, while others are definitely in my wish list. Only the mock “Alps” and monorail in some of the pics below give away the fact that these aren’t the real thing.
Rome has the Spanish Steps, the Vatican (not technically Italy), and even Termini.
The Colosseum was also familiar…
And we got to see more of Ravenna…
Florence, Naples, and Pisa also featured. Do you recognise any other cities?
My favourite was this model of Verona’s amphitheatre, complete with a performance of Aida underway.
