"Rimini also boasts many great restaurants and an energetic nightlife."

Of the beaches, the best is said to be Bagno Egisto, which has a five star overall rating on TripAdvisor from hundreds of reviews.

One visitor said: "First time in Rimini and I was pleasantly surprised, fabulous huge beach, with rows and rows of sun beds and not too close together, every thing is available close by.

"The beach itself is lovely and clean with proper walkways, excellent."

Another added: "If you want to relax and enjoy nightlife then this is the right place to go. Ideal for couples and families."

The nightlife in the area is also another big draw for tourists.

My Party Bible said: "Rimini's nightlife is closely intertwined with its stunning beaches. Along the coast, you'll find a variety of beach clubs and bars that offer a unique party experience day and night."

Despite that reputation, its prices remain fairly low, with cost of living database Numbeo revealing that beers can be bought from around £1.05.

Staying in the city isn't too expensive either, with hotels like the Royal Plaza available from £23 per night, for two people.

Ryanair flies directly to Rimini, with flights available from March next year, with flights from around £50 return.

It isn't isn't the only place where Brits are planning visits next year, with smaller, lesser-known places high on the agenda.

Skyscanner explained: "There’s a big rise in UK travellers planning trips to smaller, lesser-known cities, particularly in Europe.

"They’re searching for the Spanish favourite of Vigo, swapping the Amalfi Coast for the Adriatic’s Rimini and stepping into the storybook city of Bydgoszcz – the ‘Venice of Poland’."
