Piazza Cavour is the center of daily life for people who live in Rimini. There are shops and cafès on one side and the other side is flanked by solemn palazzi
. At one end of the piazza, you can see the majestic Neo-Classical Teatro Comunale, inaugurated by Giuseppe Verdi in 1857. The old fish market is on the left hand side of the piazza; it houses an enormous marble table, which was used to sell the fish. Nowadays, it is used as a display area for artists or market sellers.
