Close to Rimini on the Italian Riviera, this elegant resort offers superb facilities for those looking for a sunkissed Italian break. With its theme parks, cool club nights, water sports and gorgeous boutiques, families, couples and friends will all adore this seaside spot.

Riccione holidays are particularly good for those looking to dance until the early hours, as the nightclubs of Riccione and neighbouring Rimini are legendary. Many are vast, multi-floored affairs, but there are also regular beach and pool parties headlined by international DJs.

Whether you’re into get-togethers under the stars, wave-riding, or recharging on a sunlounger, holidays to Riccione are guaranteed to be fun-packed and relaxing.
