Since the 1930s Riccione gained the status of a main destination of summer tourism on the Adriatic riviera of Romagna, and, together with Rimini, is one of the best known seaside resorts in Northern Italy. Riccione has always been synonymous with fun and entertainment. In summer, it is the birth-place of trends, with new fashions being adopted by the young and then taken home when their holiday in Riccione is over.
Night-time in Riccione is enlivened by evening aperitifs, fashionable nightspots on the beach or in the centre, and some of Europe’s coolest discos. The stylish boutiques in streets such as Viale Ceccarini and Viale Dante offer unique opportunities for shopping, with the best Italian brands on sale.
