If you hear the roar of motorbike engines it means you have arrived at Misano Adriatico.
It is a place for racing drivers and motorbikes as evidenced by the Misano World Circuit, one of the temples dedicated to motorbike racing and the passion the people of Romagna cultivate for this sport.
Misano knows how to attract lovers of sport and those who opt for an active holiday. In the area there is an abundance of sports facilities able to satisfy all interests: from football to basketball, swimming or mini-golf.
With regard to accommodation, the town can offer a well-organized choice of hotels where guests will enjoy the traditional welcoming atmosphere of Romagna.
Guests at Misano have at their disposal a large beach of three kilometres, protected by a backdrop of green hills. Along the shoreline there are a number of restaurants with fresh fish on the menu. For lovers of the countryside, it is possible to go for relaxing walks along the River Conca or venture further afield along footpaths, by bicycle or on horseback.
For an evening stroll the ideal place to go is along the newly-designed promenade, now made more inviting than ever with elegant urban furnishings. Every evening there are shows and events to be enjoyed by all.
Misano Adriatica is also the holiday choice for those who revel in direct contact with the sea. In the Porto Verde harbour, one of the first of its kind on the Riviera of Romagna, there are moorings for almost 400 boats. This tourist harbour has all the necessary facilities and equipment to ensure easy berthing, not to mention, boat houses, custodians, and maintenance and repair services.
