Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Ambasciatori is luxurious and modern with a fab location beside Riccione's lovely beachfront promenade. You'll find yourself in a prime spot for spending relaxing days on the sandy beach or exploring the Viale Ceccarini - the heart of the shopping and entertainment district. A 15-minute stroll to the train station means you can easily go further afield too - Bologna is just under an hour away by train.

There’s plenty of opportunity to relax here. Enjoy a swim in the large 50 square metre outdoor pool, which is heated to 28°C or grab a lounger on the wooden decking and soak up the sun. Head across the road to the wide sandy beach if you’d rather have sea views while you sunbathe. The hotel’s got loungers and parasols here that are free for you to use. The highlight of the hotel has to be the new wellness centre. There’s a relaxing hydro massage, sauna and Turkish bath (payable locally).

In the evening we recommend taking a stroll along the promenade which has lots of bars, restaurants and gelaterias. There’s lots of places to choose from for dinner in the town but we can the hotel’s Le Bistrot Restaurant. It’s got great views over the Adriatic Sea and specializes in the traditional cuisine of the Romagna region, created with care by the chef with fresh seasonal produce.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 25 mins by private car from Bologna airport.

Adriatic Coast

The Italian Adriatic Coast is a goldmine for culture. The north eastern area's known to attract swathes of visitors in the summer months to it's broad sandy beaches - you know it's a good choice when it's where the Italians head for their summer holidays. The sandy beaches are dotted with pastel coloured parasols and are perfect if you're bringing the kids along, because they're mostly flat with lots of shallow bathing spots to splash about in.

Rimini's probably the best know resort, offering much more than just a party scene, the old town's packed with history - Renaissance palazzos and Roman ruins. Riccione's one of Italy's original seaside resorts, just south of Rimini and if you're after somewhere close to the action but a little quieter, Cattolica's the perfect place - not far from Monte San Bartol nature reserve, which has some lovely walking trails. 

You can't wrong with the food here - Emilia Romagna's famed for it's cuisine and there are plenty of top restaurant's about. There's loads of beach bars, clubs and cafes too - so when you've had you fix of lounging in the sun, head for an afternoon Aperol spritz. It's not just about the beach though - why not head inland to the hills? You'll find quiet medieval hamlets and fortified towns and villages. There's great train links from Rimini so you could even visit Bologna or Florence from here.
