Art and Culture

Not just the seaside: learn while having fun on holiday in the Romagna region

Art and history books are so good for children, but – as we know all too well – studying is hard! It’s much better to take advantage of the rich territory that surrounds Cesenatico and organise lovely trips all together, discovering evidence of ancient peoples and fairy tale villages!
Santarcangelo di Romagna, 20 km away
Upon visiting Santarcangelo you understand straight away where Tonino Guerra, one of its most illustrious citizens, got his poetic verve. The town is a poem in and of itself, from the grottos to the button museum, from the bars and restaurants that have been carved out of tufa rock - where you can sip an aperitif - to the bell tower at the top of the town.
Ravenna, 30 km away
Visit Ravenna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its boundless wealth of early Christian and Byzantine religious monuments, which are adorned with extraordinary mosaics. Over the course of a day you could walk through 2000 years of history, masterfully represented by monuments, such as the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, the Mausoleum of Theodoric, the Arian Baptistery, the Basilicas of San Vitale, Santa Appollinare Nuova and Santa Appollinare in Classe and the Archbishop’s Chapel, as well as many other wonders!
Of course there are many other things to see and cities to visit, like Verucchio, Bertinoro, Sarsina or the Frasassi Caves.

San Marino, 35 km away
The oldest republic in the world awaits you on Mount Titan, 750 metres high, between the Emilia Romagna and Marche regions. The third smallest town in Europe (after Monaco and Vatican City), it can offer you a breath-taking stroll through the fascinating medieval village, wandering past historic palaces, castles, gift shops and stunning landscapes.
Gradara, 50 km away
Gradara is found on the border between the Emilia Romagna and Marche regions and is overlooked by a majestic medieval fortress. The village is very picturesque and it is made all the more fascinating by the legend of a tragic love story between Paolo and Francesca, told by Dante in the Divine Comedy.
Urbino, 85 km away
The city walls of Urbino, the gates, Palazzo Ducale, the fortress, the piazzas, the countless churches, the museums, the botanical garden, the famous “Duke’s study” and the paintings of Piero della Francesca and Raphael, make Urbino the birthplace of the renaissance in the Romagna region.
