Holidays

Top 10 must dos

 

Some tips to enjoy your holidays to the fullest

 

1)      Do shopping in downtown 

Have a stroll along the most popular streets “Viale Dante” and “Viale Ceccarini” where the trendiest shop windows display unique jewels, designer clothes and fashion shoes, accessories and curious items.

 

2)      Taste the local traditional food “piadina”

Just cooked from a food stand: “piadina” is a thin flatbread generally filled with soft cheese or vegetables, or Parma ham and salumi, or simply with what you like. And eat it together with a glass of local wine, seated on the seashore…

 

3)      Sunbathe on the seashore

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.

 

4)      Slide along the amazing water slides or dance into the foam

That’s possible in Aquafan, the theme park with entertainment for all ages; in the night Aquafan becomes a unique discotheque where coloured foam falls down at the rhythm of the music by the most famous DJs.

 

5)      Happy hour at the harbour at sunset

Seat on a bench to say goodbye to the sun when the sea reveals its most beautiful colours and taste traditional local fish and wine.

 

6)      Meet the dolphins at Oltremare theme park

The largest lagoon in Europe inside the park hosts 11 dolphins. It offers also many more attractions!

 

7)      Pamper yourself

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, emotion showers …. to recover mentally and physically.

 

8)      Visit art exhibitions

Villa Franceschi is a beautiful Art Nouveau Liberty Style villa. Today it is the seat of Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery and hosts paintings, sculptures, pictures, drawings and graphic drawings of the 1900s and temporary exhibitions. Villa Mussolini is another Art Nouveau Liberty Style villa that hosts today temporary exhibitions and performances.

 

9)      Have a stroll along the Sea Promenade

The new pedestrian area closed to the beach with marble furniture, wood benches and flowerbeds invites you for a stroll on foot or by bike

 

10)    Discover the territory nearby

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

History...

The name (in local pronunciation Arcaton) comes from the Greek and Byzantine occupation dated back to the sixth century AD: "Archeion" is the name of a plant, the burr, which still grows spontaneously in some areas of the beach now occupied by the bathing establishments but which was once abundant on the desert shore of Riccione.
