Cesenatico: Ancient sea port
A fishermen’s harbour, planned in 1502 by Leonardo da Vinci, still characterizes to this day the heart of Cesenatico as well as being the lively centre of this wonderful seaside resort.
Still today, the canal-like harbour is the town’s lively centre, where boats of the modern fishing feet dock and where restaurants full of character, overlooking the canal, offer their famous seaside cuisine.
Along the canal harbour, the brand new Museo della Marineria, a unique museum of great atmosphere with its collection of ancient boats, which colourful sails and hulls tell tales of centuries of fishing and sea trade.
Its beach, the “Giardini al Mare” (Gardens by the Sea), great parks, sport facilities, and the fish market…They all make Cesenatico unique.
Cesenatico hosts numerous events, mainly during the summer months: from the “Nove Colli” (Nine Hills), a famous bike competition, now in its 41th year, and several theatre shows, to the “Notte Rosa” (Pink Night), renowned in the whole Riviera and loved by young people looking for fun, lots of music and amusement in the many pubs and bars along the seafront or directly on the beach.
