Riccione Things to Do

    enjoy the beach

    by uglyscot Updated Jan 13, 2010

    As it was off season when we went to Riccione, the beach was fairly empty, so the children enjoyed building castles and digging holes. However there was a small cafe which was open, so my parents were able to get a cup of coffee.

  • the beer factory

    This is a steak house in the center of Riccione, specialized in producing beer by itself. HOPS! is the right place where to have a good dinner in a very nice atmosphere, close to the harbour of Riccione and in the middle of the touristic part of the town. Beer, of course, for drinking. About food, the salads are special and served in big size!...

Riccione Warnings and Dangers

  • Non Italian food/restaurants are rare

    There are very few restaurant that serve anything else than italian, so if you are tired of pizza, pasta ect., there is not much else to eat. We tried to find a mexican restaurant, but when we found it, there were nothing left of it :-(

    I visited the Acquafun-water park during my last visit to Riccione! It was so much fun! No matter how old you are, you will sure enjoy it! And if you're not so much into pools and slides, just relax sunbathing!!!!

    Equipment: Swimsuits, towels, suncream!

Riccione Favorites

  • Suited for tour package travel

    by morio Written Dec 17, 2007

    Favorite thing: I have lived in Italy for 15 years and have always taken my holidays in Italy to see different areas. Unfortunately Riccione is better suited for someone on a package tour. Hotel are pushing the food plus lodging package and that has limited the restaurants in the area. There are a few very good ones but one needs a car to get out and find other good restauants. The town is down in heels and needs a face lift. This is sad because this was not the situation years ago. Also beware that many of the hotel cater to the bus trade especially Alexandra Plaza (part of the Fascioli group of hotels so be aware)which is advertised on the internet with photos that are doctored. It is definitly a bad hotel with poor management. We booked using the net but after a few days checked out and went elsewhere. I am not surprised that hotel doesn't show up on the list here. My husband is Italian and I think he was shocked at what he found in Riccione. The town needs to clean up its act.

    Fondest memory: Sadly this trip there are not good memories. Some years ago it was a lovely beach resort now it is just a run down beach town.
