The Adriatic Coast is one of the most appreciated holiday destinations for every age group because of the traditions and customs it has maintained throughout the years. The beneficial effects carried out by the sea breeze and the special packages provided by the numerous accommodation facilities attract even elderly people.
The over 60 visitors generally flock there during the low season, at the beginning of the summer or in September, when the climate is milder and beaches are less crowded.
Among the most appreciated accommodation facilities are inns, guesthouses and cottages situated in quiet areas a short distance from the sea and provided with special agreements with the nearby bathing establishments.
People who want to keep fit can take some exercise on the beach early in the morning or enjoy numerous entertainment possibilities, such as boules tournaments.
In the evening, bathing attendants serve dinners based on saraghina, sangiovese, piadina, ciambella and sweet albana, the traditional menu generally accompanied by folk music and dancing. From the province of Ferrara to Rimini, there are many public dance halls to enjoy ballroom dancing.
Many festivals are held to celebrate ancient traditions, such as the festival of the harvesting, and are accompanied by shows and gastronomic stands, antiques exhibitions and local streets markets, lotteries, games and bands playing ballroom dancing.
The hinterland boasts many beautiful artistic cities and ancient villages situated a short distance from the sea where it is possibile to make excursions and guided tours to discover this rich territory.
