In addition to specifically
Jewish side-trips, Rimini is
superbly situated for general
sightseeing. A 14-mile drive
from the Grand Hotel is the
remarkable Republic of San
Marino, the world's oldest
and tiniest republic. Only 24
square miles in size, its
capital city, also called San
Marino, is perched on the top
of precipitous Mount Titano.
Ravenna is only 33 miles
away and the home of one of
the world's most extensive
and remarkable mosaic collec-
tions. Created to decorate 5th
and 6th Century basilicas,
this precision art form
flowered during the height of
Ravenna's artistic era.
For classical literature
buffs, a visit to Ravenna of-
fers a chance to enter the
tomb of Dante Alighieri, Ita-
ly's greatest poet. Buried in
1321 while in exile from his
native city of Florence,
Dante's tomb is in the court-
yard of the 5th century

Remember the
11th Commandment:

"Arid Thou
Shalt be

100 miles north on the road to
In the center of the town is
a huge canal that flows in
from the sea. Along it are
docked hundreds of boats,
from ragged, overworked
fishing trawlers to vividly
decorated local pleasure
boats. Fish stalls abound
along the quays and pictures-
que perpendicular alleys
branch out from the canal.

A short hop north
or south from
Rimini will bring
you to several
quality kosher
hotels at far more
modest prices.

A visit to the Adriatic
coast is a unique and unfor-
gettable experience, available
to the observant Jew who had
previously been restricted
to those few Italian cities

Well worth the trip is the
town of Faenza, site of the In-
ternational Museum of Cer-
amics, located on the Viale
Baccarini. This fascinating
exhibition has separate
galleries for ancient classical
work as well as contemporary.
In the latter are housed
pieces of Picasso and other in-
ternationally celebrated
If the bustling streets and
beaches of Rimini begin to
wear, escape to one of the tiny
fishing villages that dot the
coast. A special treat is a visit
to Chioggia, which lies about

where kosher fare and daily
minyons are found.
Since few Americans know
about this special treat, there
is still time to become a pace-
setter long before the secret
of Rimini grows as popular in
the States as it has in Lon-
don's Jewish circles.
Both Alitalia and TWA fly
from U.S. to Milan, the
closest airport for a direct
flight. Further information is
available either at Alitalia of-
fices or from the Italian
Tourist Bureau.
