Italy in Miniature
In Viserba di Rimini, along the Romagna Riviera, there is the Park Italy in Miniature, which since 1970 has offered an overview of Italy, and of its immense cultural, architectonic, and historical heritage, with more than 270 perfect reproductions of monuments, buildings and landscapes.
Besides the big outdoor expo where you can walk among the miniatures set up among spectacular greenery and gardens, at Italia in Miniatura you can also ride along the Canal Grande in a gondola in a Venice one fifth the size of the original, or play at being a scientist at the Luna Park della Scienza.
Canoe and Sling Shot are breathtaking attractions, as is Cannonacqua, the fun castle for water battles down to the last drop. The Monorotaia Arcobaleno allows visitors to observe the park from above, while the Interactive Driving School is a driving class for little racers with a real license and point system!
For video game fans there is the PalaPlayStation Experience, for animal lovers there is Pappamondo, an area dedicated to the colorful and fascinating world of parrots that can be admired in a luxurious tropical jungle area, and the Pappanursery, where baby parrots are taken care of and fed.
