Riccione and the surrounding area

Your holiday on the Adriatic Riviera, from the sea to the hillside

The fact that you can admire the beach and the sea from every room in the Diplomatic Hotel is certainly an excellent incentive for choosing Riccione as your next summer destination, but what if we were to tell you there are also many things to do and discover here?

Riccione is indeed a great destination for families and young adults aiming to combine relaxation and fun: here you’ll find all-day entertainment in the shopping streets, in the many restaurants in the centre and on the beachfront and in the nightlife clubs on the hillsides!


Sports and open-air activities

The newly-built promenade offers perfect pedestrian paths for jogging and cycling trails which allow you to pedal along the coast or to discover enchanting hills featuring mild slopes from which you can admire the sea! By travelling just a few miles..
you can get to Santarcangelo, Rimini, Gabicce, Verucchio and Pesaro!

Water sports buffs will love that the hotel is near the sailing club, where you can go kite surfing, windsurfing or admire the coast while paddling on a SUP.

Riccione is also well-known for its olympic swimming pool which hosts national and international competitions. The structure has been dubbed the “records pool” thanks to those broken here by champions such as Pellegrini, Sabbioni, Magnini, Phelps.


Romagna is the land of racing, so of course you will also find many go-kart or mini-bike trails for challenging your friends; plus, you can watch prestigious events such as the MotoGp or the Superbike on the Misano World Circuit or visit the nearby Tavullia and Coriano, respectively the native towns of Valentino Rossi and of the unforgotten Marco Simoncelli.
