For me it's a B. Winters are a bit too cool while summers are decent. Overall it's too dry but still a fine climate.

Windsor may-sept climate is almost indentical to Rimini.
Windsor also has true four seasons with cold and snowy winters, without being too cold.
Rimini B-
Windsor A-
Thanks for your comparison, it's very interesting to me. Summers are almost the same of Windsor, Ontario, except for the rainfall, I didn't know that

Interesting. You're colder than here in January, and have very similar low temps in February to here (0.9C for here), but with milder days. Our record lows for that period are lower too.

Comparing Rimini with Windsor, Canada is like comparing cucumbers and apples. Two very different climates.

Rimini-Miramare LIPR weather station is located on the western side of the airport, about 2 km from the sea, in a wide plain rural area outside of the city.
Now I want to show you the climate chart of Rimini Centro (city centre). These data are quite old (1961-1990), so I compare these data with Rimini-Miramare's 1961-1990 averages, which are a bit cooler than 1971-2000 averages. Stazione meteorologica di Rimini Miramare - Wikipedia
A near downtown weather station is Rimini Lido (Marina Centro), useful for record low and high temperatures:Arpa Servizio IdroMeteo
Rimini city centre is mainly influenced by the urban heat island, and secondly by its position, closer to the sea (1 km).
This is the real climate we experience in the city.
Notice the wide difference in night low temperatures, record low temperatures and average days of frost!

Rimini downtown vs Miramare airport
10.5C Avg. night low 8.6C (+1.9)
13.9C Avg. daily mean 13.2C (+0.7)
17.3C Avg. daily high17.7C (-0.4)
-10.1C Record low -17.2C (+7.1)
37.2C Record high 37.9C (-0.7)
27 Days of frost 46 (-19)

A fine climate-but with winters that are a mix of continental and mediterranean, snow is not rare. A telling sign : no palm trees. Means that the winter lows can be quite severe , worse than on the Riviera (between Genova and Nice).

Our winters are certainly colder than in the Italian Riviera, which is surrounded by a deep sea and is completely sheltered by mountains, getting foehn winds during mosts of cold snaps.

Rimini is located in hardiness zones 9a and the lowest temperature recorded in the city is -10.1C. Snow and cold winds may occasionally damage palms during rare cold outbreaks like December 2010 or February 2012, but temperatures below -14C occurred at the airport only 2 nights in over 60 years (1956 and 1985).

Anyway, palms are extremely common in Rimini, on the beach, in hotels and houses' gardens, though there aren't scenic boulevards lined with date palms like Nice or Sanremo, and there aren't tropical palms.
Palms are neither Rimini native plants, nor Italian Riviera's.
Temperate climate palms like the chilean wine palm, the desert fan palm, the chinese fan palm, the brazilian jelly palm, the mexican blue palm and the mediterranean fan palm can perfectly grow and even propagate in our climate.
There are also plenty of mediterranean plants (olives, oleanders, cypresses, pines, grapevines, figs, holm oaks, jujubes, capers, laurels) and subtropicals (magnolias, yuccas, cycas, agaves, cordylines, loquat, kiwifruits, blue-passion flowers, cyperuses, jerusalem cherries, pomegranates, ice plants, persian silk trees, crape myrtles, pittosporums, tamarisks, silver wattles, gazanias) and any type of temperate fruit tree, which grow without any winter protection.

Rimini's area is also one of the northermost zones in Italy (and worldwide) suitable for extensive olive cultivation and olive oil production.

Here some examples:
