It is only natural that Italy's pleasure capital offers a wide range of sports facilities: from the Olympic swimming pool of Riccione to sailing clubs, from five-a-side football pitches and in-line skating to tennis, from trap-shooting to horse-riding, from go-karts to canoeing, and, of course, a myriad of other activities offered by the sea and beach. All this and much more!
  • Boats can be hired for open-sea fishing and you can also find a number of diving centres.
