Sightseeing in Cesena - what to see. Complete travel guide

This town is situated away from usual tourist routes, and at some distance from the coast. Once you arrive at Cesena, you start understanding what Italy is and how it lives without crowds of tourists, constant bustle, and stupidity. It is difficult even to believe that only a dozen kilometers separate this town from the Adriatic coast. This town doesn’t have sights that are mentioned in history books, but even a simple walk along the quiet streets of this Italian town would be unforgettable.
By the way, this town still has something to admire. The building of the country's first public library is very beautiful. Be sure to inspect it from the inside as well. The hill is also the location of Rocca Malatestiana, the castle built during 1380 - 1480. By the way, the library is also linked with the name of this feudal family. Another attraction, which is unjustly deprived by many guidebooks, is Cathedral of Cesena built in the late fifteenth - early sixteenth centuries.
The road to the sea takes about a half of an hour. As you can see, Cesena offers an excellent opportunity to combine beach rest with measured calm walks in the quiet town and the ability to become familiar with the true Italy without the crowds of European tourists. Copyright
The old Clemente Bridge constructed above the Savio is a very interesting and romantic attraction. The bridge construction includes three arches. For its finishing, beautiful artificial stone was used. On the bridge columns, you can see different memorial inscriptions and emblems. This old bridge is a vivid example of architecture in the neoclassical style.
