We apologize for making you wait for so long, but these are hard times, and regulations are continually changing, yada yada yada, we're all used to this stuff by now.
Regardless, Paganello will be back this year on the Rimini Beach! (Unfortunately, under certain circumstances).
The first weekend in October is confirmed for play, with the games starting Saturday 2nd and ending Sunday 3rd.
Here are some important details:
In order to play at the tournament, you must be in possession of the "EU digital COVID certificate" (or Green Pass as the Italians call it) and be able to present it to an official. More on that here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/live-work-travel-eu/coronavirus-response/safe-covid-19-vaccines-europeans/eu-digital-covid-certificate_en
Sadly,it could be difficult to organize parties this year, due to the strict COVID regulations. But there is no reason to worry: beer and joy will flow as always while we celebrate the opportunity to play Beach Ultimate again.
For further information please contact us at Info@paganello.com. You know how fast things change.
Once again, we apologize for these late announcements. We hope to see everyone as soon as possible.
See you on the Beach. Ciao!
Paganello will be waiting for you on the Beach of Rimini, Emilia Romagna, Italy.
And the Paga village will rise in front of Piazzale Alberto Marvelli, on Beach #37 (in Rimini we have numbered beaches, zone #1 is at the harbor and the numbers increase by going south (moving with the sea on your left).
leave the highway (”autostrada”) A14 at “Rimini Sud”, then follow the sings “Mare” (sea) and “Delfinario” (Delfinarium): you should hake to look for Beach #34.

Approx. prices of train tickets to Rimini (one way):
Italian train service website: https://www.trenitalia.com/it.html
Exit the railway station and go straight until the small roundabout, then head to your left until you see a big bridge (looking like something from the Lord of the Rings), and go left through the park on your left again. Follow the park until the beach, you’re going to be at beach #28, head to your right and look for the big tent waiting for you. (Quickest way to the Paga Village)
in front of the railway station. You need to purchase the ticket, before getting on the bus. Look for the stand/cabin with the sign “bus tickets” and/or “START”).
Once you’ve caught it: after a subway under the railways, the bus runs on an avenue (Viale Principe Amedeo); as it gets to its end (where a fountain is placed), it turns right and takes the parallel street of the seaside (Viale Vespucci).
Just get off at the third stop after this turn (bus stop #12) and then keep on walking in the same direction, until you can turn left towards the sea: you should be in front of Beach #28. It should take about 10 minutes from the train station.
Bus #11 can be also helpful to reach any Paga hotel.
Unfortunately, Rimini airport has just a few destinations and arrival available so here’s a list of the most common airport you should check out to reach Rimini:
Bologna: Several Ryanair flights land in Bologna. Quite close to the railway station (about 30 min.) that can be reached with a bus leaving right in front of the airport exit. From Bologna, there are many direct trains to Rimini (about 1hr). There’s also a shuttle that can bring you directly from Bologna Airport to Rimini.
Milano (Malpensa): this is Milan airport where intercontinental flights arrive, quite far from the Milan railways station (about 1 hr): there is either a direct bus service to the railway station or a train which gets you to an underground/tube station from which you can reach the railway station. From Milan, there are some direct trains to Rimini (about 3 hrs) and many direct trains to Bologna (about 2 hrs) from where you can catch a train to Rimini.
Milano (Linate): Milano city airport: bus service to Milan train station
Ancona (Falconara): about 1 hr by train from Rimini. From the airport, there are both train and bus connections with the Ancona railways station from where you can catch trains to Rimini
Venice: about 2.5 hrs by train from Rimini. Bus service to the Venice train station is available
Rome (Fiumicino/Leonardo da Vinci): main Rome airport: train/shuttle service (about 35 min) to the Rome central train station (”Roma Termini”).
Rome (Ciampino): bus service to the Rome railways station
From Rome, there are very few direct trains to Rimini: the most common way to get to Rimini is to take a train to Bologna and change there.
