Gabicce is located in a bay, nestled between the sea and the slopes of Mount San Bartolo. the town is divided into a flatland part (Gabicce Mare) that sits along the beach, and a higher part (Gabicce Monte), on the slopes of Mount San Bartolo, from which you can see the natural gulf forming beetween the Marche and Emilia Romagna regions.
Due to its position next to the famous Romagna beaches, Gabicce has experienced considerable economic development after the second World War, when the small town became one of the top holiday destinations of the whole Adriatic coast.
