Adriatic Coast

Adriatic Coast
Description

Selectcamp’s top 12 Adriatic Coast campsites have all the right ingredients for a perfect family holiday

The Venetian Riviera also known as the Adriatic coast is home to some of the most beautiful beach resorts in Europe! There is so much to see and do whilst on the Venetian Riviera...
Day trips out on the Adriatic Coast are great! We recommend, Rimini as a very popular seaside resort, there are many beaches and shops but also a lot of culture and places of interest on the east coast of Italy and there’s also a lot of culture to experience in Rimini itself. 
The Arch of Augustus for instance was built in the 1st century BC, or Tempio Malatestiano dated from the 15th century and the Amphitheatre from the 2nd century.
