North Adriatic



North Adriatic Southern Adriatic Liguria Ionian
Sardinia Southern Tyrrhenian Northern Tyrrhenian Other Small Islands

The first seaside resorts on the Adriatic coast were established in the middle of the nineteenth century. From then on the very fine sand, the calm sea, the excellent climate, and the sincere, creative conviviality of the people have been the distinguishing features of a new, more open, different way to receive guests. Hotels, restaurants, meeting places, leisure, sports and cultural centres are constantly centred around these values. Ageless and unprejudiced, this long strip of land, which from north to south includes the northern and central Italian Adriatic coast, appeals to tourists from all over the world, in a language they all understand. The Adriatic has a long tradition of welcoming visitors and especially appeals to families. Beautiful beaches are equipped with all facilities including baby parks and keep fit sessions on the sand.

The Adriatic also appeals to young people offering them a variety of night life entertainment (particularly on the Romagna Riviera which is unrivalled in its discos and night spots and has no seasonal limits). If you then remember that the Adriatic beaches are really only a few kilometres away from cities of great cultural prestige (from Venice to Trieste, Ravenna and Urbino), that these areas are interwoven with a very rich tradition of good food and wine, and that the network of roads, motorways and airports makes it very easy to get around, you understand the reason for the ongoing success of this part of the Italian Mediterranean. The Adriatic coast passes through seven Italian regions, from the border with Slovenia down to the farthest point of Apul.

The Adriatic Sea: the land of fun for young people and families alike

If we stop to look at the never-ending sequence of beaches, Jet our gaze wonder over the thousands of towns and villages, and intoxicate our senses with the colours and the scents, we realise a deep-seated truth: the Adriatic is a generous mother who has given birth to children that are very different from each other, but who are still brothers and sisters. We can see it as we approach this holiday paradise, just a step away from the centre of Europe, where the sea looks towards the East and the Ba1kans, and then go along the coast towards the Po delta and as far as Le Marche. We see unrolling before us a film which has forever been the same and yet is different each day. The water is inviting, and the sand velvety. The sun is strong, but it does not burn. The heat is great, but it comes especially from the warmth of the peop1e of all ages and countries who flock to the Adriatic coast to meet other people. Children devote themselves to their games, families find themselves more united, and the young peop1e get to know each other and have fun.

There are lots of languages spoken here, but there is one in particular that everyone understands: the universal language of sea and holidays.

Veneto Coast

There are countless places worthy of note: Bibione, beautifully situated like an island between the sea and a set of canals, which separate it from the mainland, has highly modern tourist facilities, set in natural surroundings of great beauty; Caorle, with its ancient dwellings; Lido di Jesolo has facilities that can easily accommodate the many thousands of visitors; and Sottomarina, with wide, welcoming beaches just a short distance from Chioggia, a very old fishing town.

Lidi di Comacchio

South of the delta, recent, impressive urbanisation work in the Comacchio area has created the so-called Sette Lidi, or Seven Lidos (Lido di Volano, Lido delle Nazioni, Lido di Pomposa, Lido degli Scacchi, Lido degli Estensi, Lido di Spina and Porto Garibaldi), which are today host to a firmly-established seaside tourism, with holiday homes and residences.

Friuli Coast

The Adriatic coast passes through seven Italian regions, from the border with Slovenia down to the farthest point of Apulia. The most northern part includes the seaside resorts of the Friuli and Veneto regions. In the gulf of Trieste, it is dominated by rocks looking down aver the sea, with delightful stretches of sand at their bases. The Friuli Adriatic offers not only beaches equipped far those holiday-makers who lave to have all possible comforts available to them (Sistiana and Ginestre), but also more secluded beaches far those who seek greater tranquility. The generally less well-known resorts (Costa dei Barbari, Duino) usually have little eating places with simple cuisine, and are certain to offer good fish dishes. There afe always sports facilities for tennis, horse-riding, football and, of course, sailing. A holiday here also gives you the chance to get into the sport of potholing - a sport which started up in the Carso area aver a hundred years ago and offers a way to explore thousands of underground caves, or else rock climbing, far example, on the natural rock-face far training climbers in the Rosandra valley, just a short distance from Trieste.

The oldest and best-known seaside resorts are Grado (there are some remarkable architectural and artistic treasures in the old town-centre). Marano, and the more recently-established Lignano Sabbiadoro, all on the edges of beautiful lagoons.

Romagna Riviera

The Romagna riviera is proverbially famous far its highly-organised beaches, enabling a huge seaside village to spring up in a continuous line along the coast - a holiday city where people meet each other, make new friends, listen to music and dance, have fun by day and by night, and throw themselves into sporting activities. From the Po estuary, to the Gabicce promontory, there are 110 kilometres of gentle coastline linking the Comacchio lidos to Cattolica, including Marina di Ravenna, Milano Marittima, Cervia, Cesenatico, Gatteo, San Mauro, Bellaria, Igea Marina, Viserba and Rimini, Riccione and Misano. The shore line is on average one hundred metres wide, and the sand is extremely fine and golden.The Emilia Romagna riviera appeals to visitors from all aver the world and is popular because of its large beaches, the quality of its services and its safety: there are aver 1400 bathing beaches equipped with facilities, 337 rescue look-out points - one every three hundred metres 800 lifeguards, and 45 first aid centres with ambulances. Among the many opportunities offered by this, the real "heart" of the Adriatic, is the Family and Children Club, which offers high quality holidays far the "Iittle ones" all year round: special furnishings in the rooms, efficient services in the dining rooms, special needs catered far in the preparation of meals, equipped play areas, a warm welcome, as well as small gift shops and tourist information far the younger customer. Romagna, with its capital Rimini, is very popular with the young people too - those who are perhaps looking far a fun-filled holiday rather than a restful one. Rimini by night is their world, throbbing like a funky rhythm, romantic like the moonlight, warm and impetuous like a river of joy that fills the heart.

It represents the longing to be caught up in a summer dream, on your own, in a twosome or together with lots of other people: it is positive, musical and all-pervasive. It is the exciting sound of the discos, dinner on a boat under the stars, a caf�-concert, a rural festival up in the hills, an ice-cream on the sea-front, evening shopping, an open-air film, an opera, or a bar with jazz music.

Marche Coast

The Gabicce headland forms the boundary of the Romagna region, and we then come to Le Marche - a coastline stretching far a good 180 kilometres as far as the mouth of the Tronto. The sea shore of Le Marche, with its beautiful beaches alternating with pebbles, rocks and sand, has everything holiday-makers could want. In the northern part of the region, known as the "riviera of the hills", long, slender beaches are interrupted here and there by headlands, small coves or the mouths of mountain streams. The resorts of Gabicce Mare, Pesaro and Fano offer a quiet seaside holiday even far inexpert swimmers and children. A little further south, Senigallia, the ancient capital of the Senones Gauls, is famous today throughout Europe far its very fine, white, velvety beach. In the distance, you can see the Conero, a headland of extraordinary beauty thrusting out into the blue of the sea just behind Ancona. Here, the most unusual stretch of Le Marche coastline starts: the Conero riviera, with splendid white bays, sometimes accessible only by boat or along paths cutting through the Mediterranean maquis. Going southwards from Ancona, you come to a succession of charming tourist sites: Portonovo, Sirolo and Numana, with its practical and efficient tourist harbour, and Marcelli, the most modern, with tourist villages, residences and lots of facilities far accommodating visitors. Further along the coast, there are wide, flat beaches, as far as the green surroundings of the pinewoods at Porto Recanati, Porto Potenza Picena and Civitanova Marche (with two ports, one far tourism and one far fishing).

To complete the panorama of Le Marche coastline, we cannot fail to mention the green Ascoli Piceno riviera, stretching between Porto Sant"Elpidio, Lido di Fermo, Porto San Giorgio and Pedaso, and the so-called Riviera of the Palms, between Cupra Marittima, Grottammare and San Benedetto del Tronto, with its 7000 palm trees.
