Facing Croatia and boasting wide sandy beaches and low tides up to 100 meters off shore, the riviera’s historic roots in fishing make Cesenatico one of the most picturesque and quaint towns to choose for your event. Its 14th century canal was designed by none other than Leonardo da Vinci and period fishing boats docked with sails raised show off their amazing colors and the town’s seafaring heritage.
The harbor milepost is a family statue of a fisherman’s wife and children spotting his return with excitement … and relief.
fishermenMany a fishing village feel the anxiety every time a boat sets out to sea and Cesenatico is an international tribute to those communties.
A walk through the Museo della Marinaria and the ‘floating’ display of antique fishing boats gives you a sense of timelessness and for this reason the city holds Italian civil ceremonies in and around these historic landmarks.
