Cesenatico is located on the east coast of Italy, Riviera Romagnoli – 100 km coastline with excellent beaches between Rimini and Ravenna. This area is not in the top 10 favorite places to foreigners, but that’s why you like it. Calm, relaxed, ready to immediately immerse you in the Italian holiday life. Cesenatico appears as a fishing village about 700 years and its transformation into a beach destination experiences in the 50s of last century.

Cesenatico has volleyball and a long promenade for a morning run. The city conducts legendary velosastezanie Nove Colli. Even if you forget to sign up for participation, however, the town is perfect for lovers of bicycles. There are wide bicycle lanes calm traffic and a lot of places from which to rent a vehicle on two tires (Some hotels even offer them free).

The house of Marino Moretti
Marino Moretti is an Italian poet and writer, whose works will find vivid description of life on fishing towns at the beginning of last century. His home is now a museum. You can stand at the window, as he did it, and watch the people at the port in search of inspiration for literary heroes. Moretti himself bequeathed the house and belongings to a museum, but today I must make a preliminary request for a visit as there is no fixed working hours.
And because you are tired of so much sport (and you deserve a treat!) Night’s time for an aperitif – specific to Italy custom according to which around 19 hours each drink (wine or cocktail) comes with free snacks, cheese, sandwiches and whatnot. Aperitif is time for pleasant conversation for Italians tradition worth to bring home.
