Porto Canale is a really attractive place to see in Cesenatico. It was designed by Leonardo da Vinci and you will find an exhibition of beautiful boats there. Both sides are full of restaurants serving fresh seafood and vino frizante.

Abundant water, crystal clear beaches within close proximity of cafes and accomodation, without the multi storey madness. This destination offers everything required for a quiet and safe getaway. A fishing village atmosphere, which comes to life at night. Somewhere l wish to revisit.
