Cesenatico's origins date back to the early 14th century. The townspeople of Cesena needed access to the sea, crucial to their flourishing mercantile activities. The harbour of Cesenatico soon took on growing importance for the economic and political life of the upper and mid Adriatic, attracting the envy of nearby towns which destroyed it on several occasions. In 1502, Cesare Borgia, asked the architect and engineer, Leonardo da Vinci, to strengthen the harbour. The harbour which Leonardo built on top of the older structures is still clearly visible today.
In the 18th century, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Pietro Leopoldo, chose Cesenatico harbour, at that time mainly a even for merchant vessels, as the terminal point of highway linking the Grand Duchy with Romagna. Another historical event witnessed by the town occurred on 2 August 1849, when Giuseppe Garibaldi, with about 200 men, in 13 fishing boats, set off from Cesenatico to go and rescue Venice, which was under siege. The third millennium sees Cesenatico as one of the most famous resorts of the Adriatic Riviera of Romagna; a thriving business town with a careful eye on changes in the holiday market and a keen interest in traditions and its own history. A perfect blend of old and new, fundamental for winning the challenges of a "global" market that demands increasingly higher quality.
