Tourism and Attractions

In the middle of the culture!

To discover the history and the culture of this area you just need to reach Bertinoro, a medieval town centre characterized by little cobble paving which climb toward the ancient bishop's fortress.

Bertinoro is a very important university centre and houses an inter-religious museum dedicated to the three monotheist religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islamism.

Descending from Bertinoro to the plain, you will reach Forlimpopoli, where the medieval fortress overlook the wide square and where the scents of the typical cuisine are signed by Pellegrino Artusi, a famous gastronome who is entitled the first Italian Centre on "home cooking" and the culture of alimentation, which is inspired by his recipes.

Covering the via Emilia north-westward you'll arrive in Forlì, capital of the province together with Cesena. In Forlì precious pieces of architecture stand out on the stately Piazza Saffi, under the shadow of the Romanesque bell tower of San Mercuriale. Through several squares you'll reach the museum San Domenico, thirteenth-century convent transformed today in the Civic Art Gallery, with a gallery which hosts international exhibitions.

The historical centre of Cesena is also splendid, crossed by narrow streets and arcades and dominated by the Malatesta Fortress. The symbol of the city is the Malatesta Library, founded in the mid-fifteenth century and preserved intact in its structure, furnishings and collection of books, such that it has been entered in the International Register "Memory of the World" by UNESCO.

Leaving from Cesena, in few time you'll arrive in Cesenatico: the sails of the Leonardesque Canal Harbour colour this pearl of the Adriatic, which is characterized by long sandy beaches full of umbrellas.
