Misano Adriatico is situated in an excellent position for visiting many of the most attractive places along the Romagna Riviera, and for exploring the inland region with its historic villages and churches, entertaining folk festivals, and traditional local food.
While on a trip to Rimini, you can discover a rich past stretching back to Roman times by visiting the fascinating City Museum. You can also explore the site known as the “Domus del Chirurgo” (House of the Surgeon), an ancient infirmary complete with medical instruments, or visit the evocative Malatesta Temple.
Rimini hosts many events of interest to families, couples or young people. Among the most popular are the Cartoon Club in July, an exhibition of comics, and the A’marena film festival, staged right on the beach and held from mid-July to mid-August.
The famous resort of Riccione is also only a few kilometres from Misano. This centre of entertainment is sure to attract you with its elegant shopping streets, shows and events to please every age, and fantastic amusement parks which rank as the best in Europe. The Agolanti Castle also organizes various events for youngsters during the summer season. If you are interested in exploring the history of Riccione during your holiday, you can visit the Villa Mussolini, the Villa Franceschi and the fascinating local Museum.
The town of Cattolica is right next to Misano, and so within very easy reach. The “Queen of the Adriatic”, with its attractive, elegant old town, is famous for its cultural events, staged throughout the year at the “Teatro della Regina”.
While in Cattolica, you can also take the family to the fabulous aquarium, a fascinating trip into the depths of the sea.
From the coast, you can venture inland to explore the beautiful mediaeval villages of the Valmarecchia. This is a very evocative landscape, with many castles and historical sites: places such as Verucchio with its Malatesta fortress, San Leo with its imposing castle, or Casteldelci, with its mediaeval bridge and tradition of excellent cuisine. One of the most attractive mediaeval villages in the inland area is Sant’Agata Feltria, with its ancient Fregoso Fortress and Convent of San Girolamo.
