Cesenatico is very conveniently located, only 4 km away from Gatteo Mare. This seaside town was founded in 1302 to serve as a port for Cesena, which is a landlocked city 15km away. Since then, Cesenatico has never lost its origins as a fishing village in the heart of the Adriatic coast. The picturesque harbor canal with its colorful sails and the “Floating Ship Museum” bear witness to this.
The port canal was built in 1502 according to plans by Leonardo da Vinci and still attracts the attention of thousands of visitors, from all over the world.
At the harbor, which was designed by Leonardo da Vinci, you can admire the outdoor Ship Museum. There is an almost unique collection of old boats, whose colorful sails and hulls tell fascinating tales of centuries of fishing and seafaring.
Furthermore, Cesenatico boasts an extensive beach surrounded by lots of green areas, as well as the “Levante” park, lots of sports facilities and a beautiful fish market. A visit will definitely be worth your while.
