"Riviera" conjours visions of St Tropez and Portofino in the 70s - ah if it were only so.

Most over-commercialised area on the east coast. Show an Italian some sand he will line it with Hotels, cover it in Bagni (beach emplacements) and charge you for the privilege of sitting on the beach.

Rimini is famed for its nightlife although personally I think Riccione is a nicer place to be.

Beware of property addresses.

"Rimini" addresses occupy ~ 14km of seafront from Torre Pedrera in the north to around the Airport in the south. Area north of the harbour up to Torre Pedrera known more for families.

If you must go to Rimini look for a Hotel between Piazza Marvelli/via Tripoli up towards the river.

Thing is a lot of places/restaurants next to main roads - one of which being the Viale Amerigo Vespucci. The hotels aren't beachfront - there is alarge main road between them and the beach and one behind. This is generally the norm in this entire area.

Unfortunately for all these places building planning was not in the forefront of anybody's mind so every thing a bit "bitty". Basically line the beach with Hotels but make sure there is a main road between the Hotels and the beach, then put another main road behind the line of hotels then criss-cross roads.

They don't seem to understand the concept of a promenade with bars/restaurants etc.

As said personally much prefer Riccione. More upmarket and the area around Viale Maria Ceccarini is pedestrianised with various shops (Armani etc) restaurants and bars.

Cattolica also popular.

There isn't really a "centre" in each tourist area where everything is going on where you can get easy access (on foot) to bars, restaurants and clubs that you might have come across in many other tourist destinations in the world. It doesn't help that the whole area is stretched out. In these areas they even have special bus services going to the clubs - such as they are spread out.
