Riccione not just the sea

What you can see and do in Riccione. Not just the sea, discover the countryside and enjoy all the entertainment as well

The Riccione countryside will amaze you with its fascinating history: castles, hill top towns, and ancient buildings are waiting to be discovered.
The castle in Gradara became legendary thanks to the love shared by Paolo and Francesca, which is recounted in the V canto of Dante’s Inferno.
Urbino, a pearl of the Italian Renaissance, still preserves the glory it gained under Federico di Montefeltro, especially in the Ducal Palace, which houses his renowned studio.
San Marino is a small state just a few kilometres from Riccione. It clings to the top of Mount Titano.
San Leo dominates the Valmarecchia Valley from a suggestive outcrop of rock. Its castle has gone down in history because the famous Italian alchemist the Count of Cagliostro spent his last years in prison here.

The Romagna Region is also perfect to enjoy lots of fun and entertainment.

The countryside around Riccione is in fact home to many theme parks.
The Aquarium in Cattolica is the right place to spend a day close to the most incredible marine species. While at Oltremare you will be bewitched by the dolphin shows. Aquafan is waiting for you with its pools and waterslides, for scary descents and exciting dives into the water.
