Impossible not to fall in love with Cesenatico.
Impossible not to get lost admiring the Porto Canale, a riot of pastel colors, fishing boats, restaurants overlooking the sea and alleys that enter the splendid village.
In the picturesque old town, which blends harmoniously with modern urban structures, you can still breathe the atmosphere of the ancient fishing village. The soft sandy beach sloping down to the sea, with its well-equipped establishments, and the hinterland, with the two large parks, are just some of the distinctive features of Cesenatico. Its Giardini al Mare are very popular, a long green belt where you can sunbathe while strolling in peace.
Its origins date back to 1302, when the canal port was dug and a fortress was built to defend it. In 1502, Leonardo da Vinci designed the Porto Canale, still the pride of the town. On 2 August 1849, Garibaldi set sail from this port with Anita and two hundred followers on fishing bragozzi for besieged Venice. In the oldest part of the Port Channel, the Marine Museum with historic boats testifies to the maritime identity of Cesenatico. Not far away, you can admire the rooms of Casa Moretti, with everyday objects and the original writings of the great protagonist of twentieth century literature.
The town is very popular with cyclists for the specialized services it offers and for the international cycling events that are held in particular during the spring. While throughout the summer it is particularly popular with families due to the calm and relaxed atmosphere that characterizes it.
The rich calendar of summer events offers concerts, themed evenings with tastings, the very famous Concerts at dawn or Notturni alle Conserve without forgetting the open-air theater and markets practically every evening.
