Where to go from Riccione

In the city itself, it’s nice to walk through the picturesque parks, see the Villa Mussolini, Castello Agolanti, the Riccione Canal and the Museo del Territorio. Tours from Riccione to San Marino, Florence and Venice are popular with tourists. We do not recommend buying an excursion to Rome! It takes 9 hours to get there, and you’ll only be in the city for 2 hours.

Alish37: “Excellent guides on excursions. We went to Venice, Florence, San Marino, a tour of Rimini. So many interesting things I learned about Italy and this region in particular. The vacation was wonderful.

Riccione – for those who love to be on top of the pleasures!

Riccione is a very cozy resort. Also with its own unique infrastructure, but it is immediately felt in the atmosphere. In Riccione the beach is sandy, there is shallow water, there are no breakwaters.

The beach itself is about 7 kilometers long, well understandable. Everywhere there are umbrellas and sun loungers, there are also children’s animation areas. It is really cool that you are not limited to your hotel beach, and you can walk wherever you want. There are separate lounge areas, not just an umbrella chaise lounge, and large chairs or sofas, all patterned and made for full reclamation under the sun. As for the cost of the beach, it depends on how many spots are available. But all practically at the same cost. There is a, at the resort we met at Riccione, the closer to the sea, the more expensive set of umbrella-loungers, and, accordingly, the farther away, the cheaper. The rest in Riccione is considered respectable, you can not call it straight vip.

There are cooler areas. But it is definitely more expensive, well-groomed and respectable.

And, accordingly, the cost is higher. If it is an umbrella for 2 people and 2 sun beds – it starts from 20 – ty euros. If it’s closer to the sea – it will be 27 and 29 euros. For 4,5 euros you can use the pool all day. For 3 euros you have 15 minutes Jacuzzi. The cost of the hotel 3 stars with meals and breakfast per person will cost 404 euros. This is for a week.

Fabulous Riccione

We have already vacationed in Rimini, so this summer we decided to stay in Riccione. We decided to stay in Riccione this summer. I must say that Riccione is a little bit more expensive than Rimini, but also much more interesting. The stores here alone are worth it. All the coolest stores are located in Via Ceccarini and, as our guide said, this street adores the famous Adriano Celentano. Whether it’s true or not, I do not know, but we fell in love with this street. There are a lot of stores, from the most democratic ones like Stradivarusa to the cool boutiques like Gucci, Valentino, and so on. There are also stores of local young designers, where you can find a lot of interesting things, for example a cool blouse for 8 euros. The street is very big, just behind the bus terminal, and there’s a nice fountain there.

The sea in Riccione is wonderful. Very shallow and warm. To a decent depth it is necessary to go very long, therefore we have bought at once a mattress and already on it swam on depth. The only thing I did not like was the seaweed. There is a lot of algae, especially when the tide comes in. You swim in the green water. Sometimes with algae brought all sorts of garbage thrown by tourists into the sea. Beaches are sandy, of course, paid. We first went to the beach, which cooperated with our hotel (the signs with the beach number listed the names of hotels), we paid for two sun beds and an umbrella of about 8 euros. Then we started going to the free beach (you see a wide sandy strip between the beaches without any signs, know that this is a free beach). It’s all good there, but steal. We almost lost two phones.

Riccione – the green pearl of the Adriatic

Ir0

The town of Riccione, which is called the “green jewel” and the “social salon” of the Adriatic Riviera, is located in the north-east of Italy in the Emilia Romagna region.

Most tourists – locals and tourists from Europe. Russians rather a little, as a rule, our tourists prefer cheaper options – in neighboring Rimini. Rimini is a city rich in attractions, but the water and beaches there are not particularly clean. Still a big city, not a resort. And cheap hotels are outside the city.

Riccione is ideal for a holiday on the Adriatic coast. The town has a tourist port with yachts, many excellent clubs, as well as restaurants and trendy boutiques on Via Ceccarini. Shopping in Riccione is for all tastes – you can buy a democratic Guess, Sisley, Zara as well as Armani, Furla, D & G and others. Prices in restaurants are quite reasonable. Coffee is especially cheap, by the way, of good quality.

There is a public transport along the coast and also a railway station. Therefore, from Riccione you can easily get to Rimini.

Luxury hotel in Sicily for 40-70 euros: live in a palace!

The cost of recreation in Riccione. September 2018.

We took a tour with a flight from Moscow (ourselves from Siberia). In the end, the trip for two people cost us 64 thousand rubles for 10 days, plus about 20 thousand paid for the flight to Moscow and back. And since our visa expired, we had to open a new one, which is still about 4000 rubles, if converted from euros. We landed at the airport of Rimini, met our guide, who was with us in the last visit, he even recognized us and joked all the way to Riccione (a nice bonus).

All excursions we have long been buying only on the street, it comes out much cheaper. It is better to take tours in a package, then you will either a good discount, or give a gift of some excursion. We took tours to Venice, Milan, Verona, and we were given a free excursion to San Marino, which costs 15 euros. We liked the excursions, Venice was the second time, gave 60 euros per person, plus a ride on a gondola for 15 euros. In Milan we went for 75 euros, we went to the outlet village as a part of the excursion. A trip to Verona for 60 euros also included a visit to Lake Garda. Here was a bad moment, our guide said that all beaches on the lake are paid and you have to pay 10 euros for the entrance. We didn’t have any cash, so we decided to just wander around the town, leaving our bathing suits in the bus. And literally 5 minutes after the walk we came to a great municipal beach. It was very frustrating to sit on the lake shore and not be able to swim.

It seemed to me that eating in Riccione was a little more expensive than in Rimini. On average we had about 30-40 euros for dinner for two with two glasses of wine. Pasta or pizza was about 10-15 euros, I took lasagna for 9 euros. Some vegetable salad with tuna could be bought for 5-6 euros. A glass of wine was 1 to 2.5 euros. Tiramisu – 4,5 euros, panna cotta – 4 euros. We had lunch mainly with fruit, we went to the nearest supermarket and bought a glass with already sliced fruit for 2 euros. Tasty and refreshing in the heat.

In Riccione there is a whole shopping street where you can easily get lost. Stores vary, from local designer goods to major global brands. Clearly cheaper than in Russia. We are well-stocked in the outlet village in Milan, so in Riccione we bought only small things, such as very beautiful sandals for 20 euros, slip-ons for grandmother for 10 euros, cool swimsuit for 5 euros, underwear set from CK for 45 euros and jeans for 10 euros.
