HOLIDAYS IN ADRIATIC COAST

IMMACULATE ITALIAN COAST

There aren't many better shorelines in the world to spend quality family time on than that of the Adriatic Coast. 

If you can tear yourself away from gazing into the glittering waters of the sea itself, then you will find a region that is brimming with cultural spots to complement its brilliant beaches perfect for watersports.

Forest cloaked hills, inviting vineyards, calming villages and dramatic rocky cliffs complete the panoramic views of this scenic corner of Italy, which is still to be fully discovered by foreign travellers.

Our parks are centred around the northern section of Italy's Adriatic Coast, where you can explore Ravenna's archaeological jewels, Comacchio's scenic fishing village and Trieste's haven of history to the far east of the country.

REGION HIGHLIGHTS

Hidden Gem: Borgo San Giuliano, Rimini

At the heart of the village, do not miss the church of San Giuliano, with the seventeenth-century monastery set overlooking the old route of the Via Emilia. Inside the church, there is a large altarpiece dedicated to the Saint.

Old Favourite: Bologna

A medieval university town full of charm and charisma. Piazza Maggiore is a must, with its interesting architectural designs. Check out the two towers and enjoy a great buzzing place to shop, eat or just simply people watch.

Local Cuisine: Piadina

Typically prepared in the Romagna region (Ravenna and Rimini) this flatbread is made with white flour, lard, salt, and water. It's traditionally cooked on a terracotta dish for the extra special taste.

See & Do: Comacchio

You might want to venture out to Comacchio, a fascinating town built on over a dozen different islets, joined together by 'toy town' bridges. This little town is known to the locals as little Venice, with it's small canals that run through the town and road size bars and restaurants.

Festivals & Events: Gradisca Festival

Held in June the Gradisa Festival marks the beginning of Rimini’s 100 day long summer festival. There are parties, food, drinks, and fireworks displays to mark the occasion along the beach. 

Beaches & Lakes: Venicea

Forming the very shapely 'calf' of Italy's celebrated, slender 'boot', the Adriatic Coast is lined with splendid beach resorts, like Adriano (near Ravenna) and Vigna Sul Mar (near Ferrara).

YOUR ADRIATIC COAST QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Where is the Adriatic Coast?

Representing the northernmost point of the Adriatic Sea, the Adriatic Coast runs alongside Italy's east coast and up towards Trieste on the border with Slovenia. Major Italian settlements along the Adriatic Coast include Bari, Pescara and Venice.

What's the weather like on the Adriatic Coast?

With the huge stretch of coastline that the Adriatic Coast laps, there is naturally some differences in the type of climate you can expect when visiting our parks. As our campsites are focused on the northernmost coastline, you can expect to find the warmest months to visit from June through August, with highs in July in particular rarely dropping below 21 degrees - making for a many pleasant days on the beaches. 

Where are the best beaches on the Adriatic Coast?

With so many recommended sands across the region, it can be difficult to narrow down to just a few. In the north, we would recommend the beaches found on the 8km beach area of Lignano Sabbiadoro, which can be found between Venice and Trieste and has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, while the area of Emilia-Romagna on the northeastern coast near our parks is regarded as the place to be when you want to top up your suntan and enjoy a plethora of beachside activity.
