A warm welcome and hospitality: these are the typical features of Riccione identity, a town that doesn’t forget tradition even if it looks ahead to change and new tendencies. With the passing of time, beaches have changed too and have been furnished with modern bathing establishments, well equipped and endowed with technological system. The hotels, the sea promenade, the historic streets for strolling along and shopping too have been involved in the process of change and can proudly keep up with the new buildings dedicated to sports and leisure, conferences, business and events.
Have a stroll along the most popular streets “Viale Dante” and “Viale Ceccarini” where the trendiest shop windows display unique jewels, designer clothing and fashion shoes, accessories and interesting local items.
The new pedestrian area close to the beach with marble furniture, wood benches and flowerbeds invites you for a stroll on foot or by bike.
Well equipped bathing establishments or free beaches, ideal places to have a rest or to practice some summer sports. It’s just up to you.
In Riccione Terme spa centre or in one of the quality hotels: relax the mind and the body with health and beauty treatments. Mud and hot baths, precious spring waters, sauna, massages, emotional showers.... to recover mentally and physically.
Just cooked from a food stand: “piadina” is a thin flatbread generally filled with soft cheese or vegetables, or Parma ham and cold cuts, or simply with what you like. And eat it together with a glass of local wine, seated on the seashore...
Sit on a bench to say goodbye to the sun when the sea reveals its most beautiful colours and taste traditional local fish and wine.

Riccione is the ideal place to to embark on a trip to the surrounding countryside areas where every hamlet discloses castles, fortresses, churches, enshrining pieces of art, and brings the tourist back to the Middle Ages when the Seignory of the Malatesta family ruled the whole territory nearby.
