Riccione Country

Riccione Country  This is Riccione's historic center: far from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas, it retains the city's most authentic charm: strolling through the cobblestone streets, you can savor village life, discover craft stores, stop in the typical restaurants to taste Romagna specialties and visit some monuments such as the church of San Martino. Also not far from here is the Agolanti Castle, built between 1324 and 1343 by the exiled Florentine Agolanti family. It became headquarters of the Austrian army in the 18th century and then a farmhouse in the last century, and is now owned by the City of Riccione, which opens it to the public for events and temporary exhibitions.
