Visit the website, find out what you can do and take a look at the proposals designed for you.








Artevento, Kite Festival2. A walk between sea and kites

When the sun starts to warm up and the days get longer, there is nothing better than a walk barefoot on the sand, a few steps from the sea, immersed in the colours of the kites flying in the sky of Pinarella.
The sound of the waves, the scent of salt, the air of freedom: the best atmosphere of relaxation that only a walk along the sea can offer.
We also recommend a stroll along the seafront in Milano Marittima or along the Cervia canal, in Borgo Marina, where historic boats alternate with fishermen's boats.

From 22nd April to 1st May, the colours of Artevento's kites return to the sky of Pinarella.




Cervia Salt Pan3. Cervia's Salt Pan, southern part of Po Delta Park

If you do not know this corner of paradise, you cannot say you know Cervia. This is where the whole history of the city originated, with the ancient Ficocle.
This is where Cervia's sweet salt, that is now famous all over the world, is gathered.

The Salt Pan is the southern gateway to the Park of the Po Delta, a protected oasis where flamingos, avocets and black-winged stilts live.
From dawn to dusk, the Visitor Center organizes activities in perfect harmony with nature: birdwatching, walks on the edge of the salt pans, pedaling to the salt mountains, excursions by electric boat or canoe.
Situated just in the heart of the city centre, and easily accessible from the main roads leading to the city, the Salina is the first visiting card for those who reach Cervia by car.
A few glimpses along the way reveal a precious treasure to be discovered calmly and in all its beauty.

Discover all the richness of Cervia's nature with the scheduled guided tours.


Butterfly house - Ph. Florio Badocchi4. The House of Butterflies

Idyllically set just in the heart of the pinewood forest of Cervia and Milano Marittima, the House of Butterflies is home to hundreds of spectacularly coloured butterflies coming from the tropical regions of Africa, Asia, America and Australia.
Along the footpaths it is possible to admire them from close up, resting on flowers or on the large leaves of typical tropical shrubs.

An enchanting spectacle of nature that you can't miss!



Natural Park of Cervia5. Cervia's Natural Park

Idyllically set just in the heart of Milano Marittima, Cervia's Natural Park, a 32-hectare-large pinewood forest, is an unspoiled natural oasis where visitors will have the possibility to spend pleasant moments of relax and tranquillity while enjoying total contact with nature and animals.
Inside you can walk along the botanical trails, have a picnic in a meadow or in the equipped area and visit the different species of animals present.






Jogging in the pinewood6. Excursions in the pine forest

The centuries-old pinewood forests of Cervia and Milano Marittima and the coastal pinewood forests of Pinarella and Tagliata are the ideal holiday destinations for those interested in enjoying open-air activities.
Walk, jog or cycle surrounded by nature, which is reborn after a long winter.
And for the 2022 season, something new to experience: Forest Bathing. An experience surrounded by nature! Curious to find out what it's all about? Come and try it out.



Hillside landscape - Ph. Alberto Monti7. Bike excursions

Cervia proposes slow-bike itineraries to discover nature, art and taste.
Tourists will have the possibility to ride across the city's streets, through the lush pinewood forest, up to Ravenna and its mosaics or, for expert cyclists, to reach the charming villages of the hills of Romagna situated a short distance from Cervia, such as BertinoroBrisighella and Castrocaro.
They range from simple itineraries that are suitable for everybody to the most demanding ones for expert cyclists, from routes that last few hours to those that last days, from the sea to the hills or from Cervia to Venice along the ancient Salt Route.
Maps and gpx tracks are available for all the routes so that you can organize your tour independently.
Otherwise, you can always contact the IAT office to plan a guided tour.




6. Tennis e Golf8. A game of tennis or golf

If you feel like playing and learning a new sport, we suggest you play tennis or try a few holes of golf, with the possibility to choose the driving range.
Come have fun and challenge your friends! 


Spa and wellness9. A bath at the Spa or a few hours in a Spa

After a barefoot walk across the sand, a picnic in the Natural Park or a bike ride across the pinewood forest, what could be better than ending a relaxing day in spring?
A relaxing bath in the thermal waters or in the hotel spa is just what you need.
The Cervia Spas open on 2nd May and offer various proposals for pampering yourself and enjoying a moment of pure well-being and tranquillity.
