The Romagna Riviera, entertainment, culture and hospitality on the beaches of the Adriatic Sea

Logo CC

It is known as the Riviera of pleasure, but it would perhaps be better to say of pleasures, as you will find everything you could want for your holidays and maybe even something more.

Emilia-Romagna’s Riviera includes some of the most famous beaches in Europe, clean, safe waters, the most on-trend entertainment, unparalleled hospitality, love and respect for nature and lastly, fantastic art, culture, food and wine.

This area has a deep-rooted sense of hospitality and tradition; the locals who live and work here every day are creative and resourceful but, above all, famed for their friendliness.
Taking a trip to Emilia-Romagna is best done at your leisure; dive into the blue waters of the Adriatic, visit the famous cities of art, such as Ravenna and Rimini, immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Po Delta Regional Park or set off to discover the ancient coastal villages, such as Cervia, Cesenatico, Comacchio or those in the neighbouring inland areas, such as Bertinoro or Santarcangelo di Romagna.

In these parts, food and wine are much more than mere nourishment: they have been elevated to art and science. Plus, there are 110 km of beaches with free Wi-Fi, large amusement parks, idyllic thermal spas, artistic and archaeological treasures, sports and amazing events, such as the Pink Night and the Night of Liscio music.

All that should give you an idea as to why Emilia-Romagna’s Adriatic coast is also known as the Riviera of entertainment. By day, it will surprise visitors with the sheer variety of things to do and sports that can be played on its golden beaches; at night, it is transformed into the hub of Italy’s nightlife with many venues, cocktail bars and clubs around Milano Marittima, Rimini and Riccione.

The Riviera is the ideal place for everyone and it is ready and waiting to satisfy everyone’s needs: the beach facilities are state-of-the-art, the hotels know their clientele well and know how exactly to ensure they have a dream holiday.

No one feels left out at the Riviera, no one is forgotten about. It is the ideal destination for families, groups of friends, single people, but also for animal lovers, with services and areas that have been specifically designed with pets in mind.

The Riviera is like one big happy family just waiting to meet you.
