Excursions

A land of hospitality and good food, Romagna offers much more than you might expect in a holiday.

Not far from the Adriatic coast with its wide beaches and all kinds of entertainment, you can enjoy the hilly hinterland with its orchards, olive groves, vineyards, small vegetable gardens and many picturesque villages.

San Marino

San Marino stands on a spur overlooking the plain below and the Adriatic Riviera, and is the oldest and most characteristic republic in the world.

San Leo

The village of San Leo with its majestic castle was the scene of civil and military battles for a millennium and its fortress was turned into a prison during papal rule.

Gradara

Gradara preserves intact the splendor of the old walled village and the castle that witnessed the loves and tragedy of Paolo and Francesca narrated by Dante in the “Divina Commedia”.

Ravenna

Ravenna, founded more than a thousand years before Christ, is the most important city in Italy from a historical and artistic point of view. Its monuments in Byzantine, Imperial and Gothic styles still demonstrate the high level reached in the past; the mosaics, unique in the world, and the tomb of Dante Alighieri, the supreme poet of the Italian language, give an exact picture to the visitor of the harmonious fusion of styles from different eras.

Rimini

For over 160 years, Rimini has been in the memories and dreams of generations of holidaymakers. The secret of its success is its friendliness, the hospitality of the place and its inhabitants, and an area famous for its 15 km of beaches, 230 colorful bathing establishments, more than 1,000 hotels and amusement parks, but also for its 2,000 years of history and a little treasure chest of art.

Here, the sea is a way of life, it is the setting for Fellini films, it is the myth of summer fun that is renewed every day, it is the magic of winter mists. But before all this, Rimini was a coveted and disputed city, the capital of a seigneury, that of the Malatesta, a crossroads of cultures of which it preserves ancient and precious testimonies.

Cesena

In the center of Romagna, between Ravenna, Forlì, the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine ridge, lies Cesena, a Malatesta city. An important art destination, known for its good food and a flourishing economy, especially agricultural: in Cesena, cultural tradition goes hand in hand with hospitality and good living.

One of the most important art destinations in Romagna: the origins of Cesena are lost in the 6th-5th centuries B.C., a period to which the first settlements of Umbrians and Etruscans in the area date back. A Roman city and then a free municipality in the early Middle Ages, at the end of the 14th century the city became a seigneury of the Malatesta family and reached its splendor with the establishment of the Malatesta Library.

After the brief duchy of Cesare Borgia, of which the city was the capital, Cesena returned under the direct rule of the Papal State and saw as many as two popes of Cesena origin.
