Cervia, treat yourself to all the relaxation of a winter seaside holiday

Far from the chaos of the great city, Cervia and its surrounding area has plenty to say for itself during the winter

A unique and special time for quality hospitality, with all the charm and relaxation of the wintry seaside. The hotels open offer a chance to spend a long weekend to recharge your batteries and have fun.

Christmas in Cervia, Piazza Garibaldi - Ph. ph. Istvan BikfalviMiMa Wonderland, Luci da favola, cocchioThere are two main events in this season, Cervia Emozioni di Natale and Mima Wonderland, that both involve the residents and guests with many events, Christmas lights, ice-skating rinks and activities for children. Then to close the year, a spectacular firework display.

At Cervia the children can have fun with cute little elves and give Father Christmas their letters asking for their favourite gifts. Something not to miss is the village of Milano Marittima, at Rotonda 1° Maggio, where you can enter a world of characters from the most popular fairytales and meet Father Christmas in person.

Christmas Express, treninoCervia Emozioni di Natale, pista del ghiaccioThe Christmas Express, the little train that the children love so much, shuttles back and forth between the two events, so that you don’t miss even a minute of the great festival. A magnificent display of warm lights which, together with the fun for all the family, contributes to the relaxed happy atmosphere, an occasion to slow down and savour the pleasure of having time to yourself with a walk in the old town centre where you can sip a hot chocolate or stop to watch the skaters on the ice-rink in piazza Garibaldi, browse in the local artisan markets and indulge in an aperitif and a little shopping in the most glamorous streets of Milano Marittima. Alternatively you can enjoy the silence and fragrance of the extensive pinewood where you can recharge with a little jogging early in the morning, or slowly breathe the clean sea air, perhaps walking your dog on the beach. 

PantettoneCapodanno, fuochi

The treat continues at the dining table where Romagna is absolutely never disappointing. Hot piadina bread with cold cuts washed down with full red wines, fresh pasta with fillings, guinea fowl, mussels and fresh fish… allowing yourself to be tempted by the food is a real pleasure, and why not, you can also discover some new tastes, such as the fine sweet salt of Cervia, a typical local product. It is also used in preparing the most classic Christmas desserts such as panettone (cake), torrone (nougat) and chocolate, it adds an original gourmet touch to traditional dishes, on meat or in tartar, on fish, accompanied by aromatic herbs and absolutely must be tried in the many restaurants to be found around the town.
And the best pampering of all is celebrating New Year and waking up to a view of the sea.
