Cattolica is a very elegant and distinguished town. It is a pleasure to stroll along the tree-lined avenues filled with stores and welcoming venues where it is possible to savor an aperitif or enjoy an ice cream, or to stop off for a while in the fully refurbished piazzas decorated with fountains that have water and light play features.
In the last few years the beach of Cattolica has literally changed its face. It has been completely renewed and features innovative services such as swimming pools on the beach, guaranteed fun for the kids! Plus there are whirlpool baths, water play installations and water slides, along with the classic sunbed and beach umbrella hire services.
Cattolica really knows how to entertain its guests: the leisure hours and evenings are packed with events, exhibitions and festivals. Forget the car, everything is just a few steps away – even the shops in the center of town.
One unmissable trip is a visit to the Acquario [Acquarium] of Cattolica, the big sea theme park. There are also many excellent fish restaurants thanks to the large marine fleet that delivers fresh fish every day.
Villa Alessandrini is situated along the seafront promenade, the most exclusive part of the town, and directly overlooks the beach, in front of the bathing establishments.
