CESENATICO AND SOURROUNDINGS
A STROLL IN CESENATICO...
A charming town that will conquer your heart
Cesenatico is both an ancient and modern seaside town that grew around its canal port, remaining of an ideal size for comfortable living.
Let's take a stroll in Cesenatico together: It is easy to fall in love with its ancient Porto Leonardesco, where old fishing boats rest, awaiting for the night and the fishermen. This is a place of such beauty that it touches your heart.
The stroll continues with a stop at the Maritime Museum, a unique floating museum, ready to welcome kids and adults who wish to discover the wonders of the sea that have made Cesenatico one of the most famous seaside towns on the Adriatic.
How can we fail to mention the historical Piazzetta delle Conserve? Located just behind the old fish market still in operation, it will welcome you with its old crafts and architectural wonders of the past.
And now you can enjoy wandering through the narrow streets downtown, eating a delicious ice cream or enjoying a drink at one the many bars at the port ... or, why not, watching the fishermen get ready to set sail out at sea.
Between nature, history and culture
It is the city of art par excellence in Romagna, boasting monuments declared part of the World Heritage By UNESCO. Enjoy immersing yourself into Byzantine history, culture and art, in a city that has been influenced by different civilizations. Ravenna is all to be explored, demonstrating that the Riviera is not only about the sea, but it is also history and culture.
A visit to the San Vitale Basilica, Galla Placidia Mausoleum and Sant'Apollinare Nuovo Basilica, boasting truly unique mosaics is a must.
A city of tradition, history and poetry. Here you will find everything: from monuments dating back to the Roman Empire and Malatesta history in the beautiful historical centre to the entertainment of its theme parks, nightclubs and beaches. Celebrated by Fellini, the master of cinema, Rimini is a city that never sleeps thanks to its many and varied events. Something you must not miss? Enjoying a good piadina from a venue with sea view!
It is the oldest Republic in the world, perched on Mount Titano with a skyline defined by its three towers: Guaita, Cesta and Montale. Something special to do in San Marino? A visit to the Passo delle Streghe (The Witches’ Pass). From the top of the Pass, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the area. With a single glance, your gaze can span from the Comacchio Valleys to the Adriatic Sea. But be careful, during the summer evenings, many say they have heard the witches laugh and joke ....
