A visit to the old “salt-men” village allows you discover the charm of a little town totally rebuilt at the end of the XVII century. The ancient Salt Storehouses, which host exhibitions, events and MUSA, the Salt Museum, along with S. Michael’s Tower and the Cathedral represent the most particular monuments in Cervia.
Piazza Garibaldi, “hearth” of Cervia hosts important events, concerts and typical markets. Particularly interesting are the Municipal Theatre, the Church of the Suffrage, with its Venetian organ built by Callido and the wooden Rhenish Gothic crucifix datable to the middle of 14th century, S. Antonio’s church and the small square “piazzetta Pisacane” with the historical Old Fishery.
The fountain “The hanging carpet” conceived by the sculptor Tonino Guerra is original and colourful, as is the outdoor exhibition held from May to September, when expert gardeners from all over Europe create their compositions in all the town’s flowerbeds celebrating Cervia Garden Town.
Cervia Thermal Spa, located in the middle of the ancient pinewood, is on the forefront of modern therapies, some of which also use liman, a very effective and healing lagoon mud, extracted from the salt pans.
Summer is the best period to enjoy the town: the whole family can relax, choosing from restaurants, discos, “piadina” kiosks, mini-golf, go-karts, and much more.
Spring and autumn are particularly recommended for sport and nature lovers, as well as for anyone keen on wellness, food and wine.
Cervia maintains its seaside town atmosphere also in winter, and the nearby Milano Marittima, where all shops are open also on Sunday, offers the chance to go shopping every weekend.
Not to be missed are the parties organised in every disco for New Year’s Eve or the first dive into the sea of the year! In February, on Valentine’s day, it is possible to organise a perfect weekend with a romantic dinner in one of the many restaurants and a walk, hand in hand among the elegant boutiques of Milano Marittima.
