Riccione is the most popular Riviera Romagnola destination for nightlife lovers: let’s see what things to do and venues you must try.
From late spring until late summer, Riccione lights up with color and music.
Famous for its nightlife, beach clubs and proximity to several amusement parks and points of interest in Romagna, however, it also welcomes families and lovers of relaxation.
Riccione is a city bustling with excitement, where there is always something new to do, a new place to discover, and a different venue to try. There is certainly no danger of getting bored; in fact, if there is a risk, it is precisely that of missing out on the best: for this reason, we at Italo have selected five things to do and see in Riccione and a selection of unmissable nightspots in which to spend at least one evening.
Five things to do in Riccione
- Stroll from Piazzale Roma along Viale Ceccarini
After taking in the view over Piazzale Roma, which opens beautifully onto the sea, walk down Viale Ceccarini, the city’s most glamorous street: enjoy a spot of shopping, a live music show and an ice cream, you can relax fully enjoying a wonderful carefree and welcoming atmosphere.
- Cycling to the Castle of the Agolanti
You can rent a bicycle at one of the many bike rentals scattered around the city; you can pedal to the imposing Agolanti Castle in about 20 minutes. This beautiful castle, dating back to the first half of the 14th century, often hosts events such as exhibitions, concerts, displays and theater reviews.
- Treat yourself to a day at the spa
Yes, Riccione is not only nightlife and beaches, but also a place to relax in style. Riccione’s spas overlook the sea and are located in the heart of a pine forest near Viale Ceccarini, so they are extremely convenient to reach. The facility is fed by sulfurous waters with highly curative properties.
- Have fun at Aquafan
Of course, Aquafan must have a place in our ranking. It is the most famous water park in Europe and offers fun for everyone, from toddlers to big daredevils. We highly recommend you try the Speedriul ride and the thrill of being whipped into a giant funnel aboard an inflatable boat!
- Explore the Oltremare marine park
An attraction particularly appreciated by families with children, the Oltremare marine park surprises even adults. Every day you can watch themed shows, watch dolphins swim inside the largest lagoon dedicated to them in Europe, and come into contact with many rare species of mammals and birds of prey.
Riccione, the most exiting nightspots
Riccione, however, is also the city where you can find some of Italy’s most wonderful clubs. Summer nights are always lively, and there’s a vast choice of organized nights at clubs or seaside venues for dancing and having fun on the beach.
The Cocoricò, which opened in the late 1980s, is an experience not to be missed – an icon of the Riccione’s nightlife scene. Then follows the Pasha, another historic venue, spread over four floors that include a cocktail bar, two ballrooms and a central dance floor, a relaxation room with sofas and a restaurant. In summer, the highlight is the terrace with swimming pool, on which you can dance while observing a wonderful view of the city. The Peter Pan Club, located in the hills of Misano Monte, offers a refined ambiance with two dance floors that feature house and commercial music. Other beachside clubs worth mentioning are Living Disco, on the Misano Adriatico seafront, and Mojito Beach, located at the Bagno 137, which operates as a beach facility by day.
