Hotel San Giorgio is a preferred choice for bicycle tourists too. Every year, thousands of bicycle lovers gather in Cesenatico and get on their bikes to discover the many routes that cross the Romagna upcountry, following the stages of the renowned long distance cycle race called “Nove Colli” (Nine Hills), a 200 km (124 miles) competition held annually in May.
A stay in Cesenatico will not only give you the opportunity to spend a relaxing, fun and gourmet holiday with your family and friends, but also to discover an enchanting place in the heart of the lovely Romagna region.
The origins of Cesenatico date back to the 14th century, when its castle and harbour were built. The harbour was redesigned by Leonardo da Vinci in 1502 upon the Renaissance duke Cesare Borgia’s request. Another important year in the history of Cesenatico is 1849, when the patriot and soldier Giuseppe Garibaldi stopped here. A more recent milestone is the first beach establishment, which was built towards the end of the 19th century.
Today, its golden, 7 km (4.35 miles) long beach and its calm and safe sea make Cesenatico the ideal holiday spot for children and grown-ups alike.
Don’t miss the old town, with its quaint small squares and typical fish restaurants; Leonardo’s harbour (called Porto Canale), the very heart of the town; the colourful sails of the Museo della Marineria (Seamanship Museum), displaying the typical fishing and transport vessels that used to sail the Northern and Central Adriatic Sea; Casa Moretti, the house where the Italian writer Marino Moretti was born; and Piazzetta delle Conserve (Preserve Square), with its conical wells dug in the sand which used to be filled with snow and ice to preserve fish.
Thanks to its geographical position, Cesenatico is also the perfect starting point for one-day trips to the historic towns and cities in the heart of Romagna, or to the renowned amusement and water parks of the region: Mirabilandia, Italia in Miniatura, Oltremare, Aquafan, Fiabilandia and many more – all of them are easily reachable.
Here are just a few suggestions:
Cesena(18 km, 11 miles) , a splendid city of Umbrian-Etruscan origin that was long dominated by the Malatesta family. Cesena boasts several important monuments: the Malatestiana Library founded in 1452 by Novello Malatesta; the Fortress, an interesting military defence structure built between 1380 and 1480, and the Abbey of Santa Maria del Monte, whose origins date back to the year 1000.
Bertinoro (28 km, 17,5 miles) ), a perfectly preserved medieval town often described as “il balcone di Romagna” (the balcony of Romagna) for its location between Cesena and Forlì. This town is famous for its wine culture, its important wine producers and the Colonna delle Anella (the Ring Column), erected in the 13th century, the official symbol of the town, and an emblem of the typical hospitality of this region.
Ravenna (30 km, 18,5 miles) ), an ancient city, once capital of the Western Roman Empire, of King Theodoric’s Goths and of the Byzantine Empire. Ravenna has countless magnificent historical monuments such as the Basilica of Saint Apollinare in Classe, the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Dante’s Tomb and many more, but above all it is famous for its mosaics of the 5th and 6th century.
Montebello (30 km, 18,5 miles) ), a quaint hamlet built on a crag that overlooks the whole Marecchia valley; tourists can visit the Guidi di Bagno Castle, one of the most beautiful and better preserved castles in Romagna.
San Leo (40 km, 25 miles) ), an ancient town erected on a massive, impassable crag, only accessible by a road cut in the rock. Here it is possible to visit the Romanesque parish church (Pieve) and the Forte, a fortress in whose jails Giuseppe Balsamo, Count of Cagliostro, died in 1795.
Gradara (35 km, 22 miles) ), a hamlet surrounded by the curtain walls of its Castle, strategically located on the border between Romagna and Marche. The oldest part of the Castle was built in the 12th century, and its rooms still bear the traces of its powerful inhabitants, the Malatesta, Sforza and Della Rovere families, but above all of Paolo and Francesca, the adulterous lovers whose tragic story is narrated by Dante in his Divine Comedy.
San Marino (35 km, 22 miles) ), the smallest republic in the world, on Mount Titano, an impressive crag overlooking the Adriatic Sea at the border between Romagna and Marche. Millions of tourists visit San Marino every year to admire its artistic heritage and enjoy its fine craft and gift shops.
