Cesena is a bustling small town with an abundance of Italian pizzerias, Italian fine dining restaurants and other food restaurants like Greek and Kebab. There are numerous gelateria – ice-cream bars and cafe bars with plenty of places to stroll and enjoy the historic scenery and monuments. There are lots of things to see and do in Cesena including visiting the theatres for plays: Teatro Alessando Bonci as well as shows and dances at Teatro Verdi. During the summer months you can watch the racing at l’Ippodromo or enjoy our history by visiting La Rocca, our hilltop fortress, or Il Monte, our small mountain with it’s abbey and stunning views over the city.
Situated just 1/2 inland travel to the coast by bus (30 mins) or by car and you’ll find some lovely Adriatic coastal towns to enjoy the summer sunshine or winter walks at Cesenatico and Cervia.
There is also a huge variety of shops selling typical food products. The covered fruit and vegetable market can be found in the ‘New Foro Annonario’ which is available every morning including Sundays close to the main square and on Wednesday and Saturday there is a street market in Piazza del Popolo. Chemists can be found by looking for their green cross sign.
