The ice skating rinks along the Riviera 2015-2016

Winter on the Adriatic Riviera is more fun than ever.  The ice skating rinks invite you to come and skate with the whole family or anyone dear to you, to show off in lovely pair skating, with magical pirouettes or exhilarating falls! Because everyone, both beginners and experts, are invited to spend the holidays in the ice parks surrounded by fun games, markets and the beautiful monuments that every town in Romagna has to offer.


In the Pearl of the Adriatic you will find the longest ice skating rink in Europe, 180 meters long and covered with a transparent tent in PVC in the very elegant Viale Ceccarini.  But the “Riccione Christmas Village” is much more than this; it is a real theme park completely dedicated to Christmas. At the "Ice Kingdom" children can get to know the magical world of the Snow Queen.  Lovely decorated "huts" will be the perfect place to take part in workshops or discover typical local foodstuffs.  And you must take a ride on the Ferris Wheel located near the majestic Christmas Tree with 100,000 lights and a 9 meter long slide.  During the "white week" from December 31 to January 5, the number of events will increase, guaranteeing fun and entertainment late into the night.  The  Village will remain open until January 24.


No less fabulous is the Rimini Christmas Square, which is part of the Longest New Year's in the World.  It is a a great winter village in Piazza Cavour, where from November 28 to January 10, a big ice skating rink will be surrounded by food stands with music in the evenings, entertainment and a beach area.  Near the Roman Arch of Augustus, there will be about twenty little Berlin style pagodas housing a craft and Christmas market, as well as a French merry-go-round.  Inside the Ice Village, the big 2500 square meter winter village, there are two covered ice skating rinks.  750 meters are reserved for beginners and the larger area is for more skilled skaters.  There will be ice skating classes and hockey classes for kids and beginner classes for children as young as 3-4 years old with instructors dressed up like Disney characters.  There will also be shows by schools with professional athletes.  The fun is guaranteed from December 5 to January 24.


In Cesenatico Santa Claus Village, the biggest park along the Riviera dedicated to Santa Claus, awaits you.  The big ice skating rink in Piazza Costa will be open until January 17.  Also in piazza Andrea Costa kids and adults will find games and inflatables and they can discover the city going from one attraction to the next, from Santa Claus's House to the shows at the market exhibitions.




In Cervia, the ancient city of salt, under the big tree with lights,await kids and adults day and night with entertainment 376 square meters of ice skating rink and events in the very centrally located piazza Garibaldi, enlivened with the characteristic markets of "Cervia Gustosa" and by their crafts and regional foods.  The rink will stay open until February 15.




Moving on we go from the longest rink to the biggest one in Europe, located right in the heart of Milano Marittima.  There are about 900 square meters of ice set up around the Rotonda 1 Maggio on which there will be a full program of shows and entertainment.  Going out from the rink in all directions is a Christmas Village with little huts selling the best food of this area, the Garden of Christmas Trees made by local artists, entertainment for little kids with shows, rides and Santa Claus's house.  Until January 10.
