Riccione and nearby Rimini are among Europe’s most popular seaside destinations, with a tradition in hospitality that includes, as well as perfect organisation, a range of recreational, sporting and cultural activities available all year round. A stroll along the seafront is a traditional starting point for visitors, as are the nights out in the numerous discos and bars located in the centre or just outside of the town. The hinterland offers many points of natural and cultural interest. Places to visit include: Coriano, just 8 km from Riccione, a town surrounded by historic farms of vineyards and olive groves and the ideal starting point for a walk in the natural park of the Merano river and in the Rio Melo valley. Near Gemmano, you can visit the Grotte di Onferno, of significant geological interest. There’s Gradara, with its wonderful fortress, the ancient Montecolombo and the Church of San Martino that contains a wonderful tapestry by Brancaleoni, Montegridolfo with the famous 14th century castle, the Republic of San Marino and its famous path joining the three Towers on the mountain top, the village of San Clemente with a parish church designed by the Pope’s architect Luigi Poletti, and San Leo with its fortress that was once a prison for the Count of Cagliostro. All of these towns hold their own traditional festivals, especially over the summer, where visitors can see the recreation of medieval and renaissance scenes in costume. A little further afield but worth the trip of 52 kilometers, is Urbino, the birthplace of Raffaello, with the cathedral built by Federico da Montefeltro, the Palazzo Ducale and the National Gallery of the Marche with a large collection of renaissance works.
