Riccione, Italy - travel guide with information on hotels, restaurants and much more

If truth be told, Riccione is one hip summer destination on the Adriatic Riviera and, together with Rimini, is also one of the top seaside resorts in Northern Italy.

The most likely profile of the Riccione tourist is that of the young and restless people who come here lured by the unleashed and outgoing cheerfulness from the 60’s on which is to be found all over the place, starting with the local discos on the Riviera and in the city centre. On the other hand, if you are one happy family, you are sure to fit in here and be sure to spend some quality time as well. Ricione is widely known across Italy for its theme parks – Oltremare, Aquafan and Indiana - which offer a wide range of attractions for adults and children alike: dolphins, seals, or sea horses are just few of the sea animals you can admire here.

Accommodation in Riccione means innovation and high-quality services combined with a lasting tradition of hospitality provided by more than 460 hotels, hundreds of apartments, campsites and rooms for rent.

After an exhausting sunny day spent on the beach you can escape in your hotel room or your rented room on the Riviera or take a long walk on one of the main streets in Riccione - viale Dante and viale Ceccarini and lose yourself into your memories past, present or future wrapped in the soft mixed tunes hearing from the discos or in the spicy smells of the foods cooked in the restaurants on the beach or all over Riccione.

If the theme parks or the beach are not your thing, then cycling might be one of them. Cycling is not only popular but also lucrative in the Emilia Romagna area, so that a number of Riccione s hotels have teamed up to benefit from this: these hotels provide specific facilities for cycling tourists, including bike hire, cycle storage and tour guides – which are a suitable opportunity for you to get in touch with the cultural side of a historical Riccione.

When the twilight begins to settle in and when the street lamps are lit, do come and enjoy the heaven like cocktails and exotic fruits, the music and barefoot dancing on the beach.

Should you enjoy nightlife, Riccione offers you a great choice of clubs and discos, famous for being in the forefront for trendy music and design. The open-air dance floors are an amusing option for all who love the evergreen folk music or the witty salsa and samba rhythm.

Other Italian Resorts on the Adriatic Sea

Venice makes a perfect daytrip destination from Jesolo, which is no dismissible feature. But surely Jesolo has its own inner assets. Of these, beaches go without saying, since Jesolo is a seaside resort, but one should always take into consideration the rewarding shopping and nightlife opportunities too.

Caorle has a wealth of beaches which enable excellent pastime activities. Exploring and admiring at the same time the historic center and the lagoon in Caorle are ideal for diversifying one’s stay on the Adriatic Sea.

For a taste of what Venice means less its characteristic bustle, one should always want to experience Grado, the miniature Venice of Italy. Besides its resemblance to Venice, which always occasions great sightseeing sprees, Grado is recommendable for it thermal baths and water parks, amongst others.

Bibione strikes by the manifoldness of its attractions. These range from nature exploration to spa centers, beaches and sports activities, fun and water parks to trips to the surroundings. These opportunities are sustained by the diversity of accommodation solutions, ranging from 5-star hotels to camping sites.

A beach resort can not rely on beaches exclusively and pretend to be popular. This is why Ligano is a place where sunbathing proper is complemented by golf clubs and fun and water parks, scuba diving and horse riding and what not.

The hotels in Lignano, just as anywhere else, are meant to service the tourist platform of the resort. And actually, they do it quite well, since their variety as to rating and prices is fairly compatible with all tastes and budgets.

The tourist rating of Riccione is chiefly owed to its own inner assets, but its close proximity to the northerner Rimini surely enhances even more its visibility. Rimin is the largest seaside resort in north Italy, a feature substantiated both by its huge popularity and by the some 1000 and more hotels and various accommodation solutions available in Rimini.
