La Riviera Pet: from the sea to the hills with your four-legged friend

If you love animals and want to experience unforgettable moments with your pet, the Rimini Riviera is the perfect choice for your holiday.
Its welcoming beaches, lush green promenades and inland areas offer opportunities for recreation and pet-friendly activities.

Let us begin with the sea.
The new waterfronts along the coast, from Bellaria Igea Marina to Cattolica, offer fantastic sea-view walks well away from the traffic, with green areas, drinking fountains, rest areas and numerous playgrounds.
In addition, there are an increasing number of pet-friendly beach establishments that enthusiastically welcome furry friends, offering dedicated services and specially equipped spaces to ensure maximum comfort during your holiday.

Even at the beach, you can book fenced umbrellas for those who want a protected space, as well as shower and play areas especially for dogs of all sizes.

The best equipped beaches provide mats, bowls, dryers, dog beds and even dog education courses.


The inland area has also equipped itself for a pet-friendly welcome.
Montefiore Conca, for example, not only boasts the Touring Club's Orange Flag, but in 2022 also obtained another important recognition because it joined the network of Italy's Dog Villages.
On the gentle hills of the Rimini Riviera countryside, Montefiore not only offers a unique panorama stretching as far as the sea, but is also an ideal destination for holidays in the company of your dog.
Its majestic fortress, overlooking the Conca valley, is one of the most powerful symbols of the Malatesta Seignory and is also open to animals
The fortress is also famous for the legend of Costanza Malatesta and Ormanno, two souls in love who still wander inside the castle.


After a visit to the Rocca, a stop at the Big Bench, a member of the European Big Bench Community Project circuit, is a must. For walkers, there are no less than 60 km of CAI trails, recently cleared, mapped and marked for an unforgettable trekking experience.
