We suggest you a stay in a magical village, where the sun rises from the sea and sets between the sails of the Canal Harbour. Here are 4 activities full of love for a perfect romantic weekend :
Walking between sails and alleys
Start with a walk in the narrow streets of Cesenatico, where you can visit its historic center full of monuments, its pedestrian street along the Canal Harbour, the small shops that flank the sailing boats of the Floating Museum and the house of the poet Marino Moretti. . Visit the romantic “Piazza delle Conserve”, a symbolic place of Cesenatico where a delicate and sweet atmosphere reigns.
On the side of “Ponente” you can find ” Piazza Spose dei Marinai”, a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea that tells his love story through the statue entitled “La Ma” (the mother, in the Romagna dialect). It represents a woman with her children, who scan the horizon waiting for the return of their husbands and fathers from the sea.
The sea in winter
It is an experience that you will want to repeat every year! Take a walk on the beach of Cesenatico admiring the pier, the fishing huts, the lighthouse and the sea that vanishes on the horizon. Listen to the sound of the waves, smell the sea, experience moments of pure love and enjoy this rare, calm and reserved atmosphere.
On the small ferry between ancient love stories
Returning to the historic center, one cannot fail to take a short but characteristic ride on the Cesenatico “ferry”, which connects the two banks of the Canal Harbour. Here a romantic photo is a must! You will arrive in Piazza Ciceruacchio, where there are the busts of Giuseppe and Anita Garibaldi who found refuge in Cesenatico.
A few steps away is the “Vena Mazzarini, where the romantic story of two dolphins, Lalla and Palooza, housed here until the ‘80s is set.
A fish dinner
And if you are hungry, just look out over the Canal Harbour and choose, Cesenatico is renowned for the quality of good food! Here you will find a wide choice of restaurants and trattorias where you can enjoy the typical Romagna fish cuisine, a specialty of the village. For a romantic lunch or dinner we recommend the traditional blue fish, heritage of the regional culinary culture, accompanied by a glass of local white wine such as Albana di Romagna.
But all year round Cesenatico offers much more, whatever your idea of romanticism is: relaxing days in the SPA or in the nearby Cervia spas, food and wine experiences and aperitifs on the Canal Harbour, guided tours or bicycle excursions. What do you choose? We are waiting for you!
