The road that leads from Venice to Cervia Milano Marittima once carried the salt produced in Cervia to the Venetian Republic. While the road from Florence takes you through the Appennine passes that once brought those same Etruscan and Roman colonizers who made Cervia a thriving salt-producing town.
When you consider its ideal position on the cost, its wonderful, iodine-rich microclimate, and its health-giving pinewood that stretches inland from the beach, enveloping houses and hotels in a rich verdant setting, Cervia Milano Marittima could not really help becoming the popular resort that it is today.
But nature's bounty alone would not have been enough to ensure the success of a tourist tradition that stretches back a hundred years. Some 500 hotels, 5000 holiday flats and a dozen camp-sites are not created overnight!
And the magical ingredients that make Cervia Milano Marittima such a popular resort are sea, sport, excellent organization and a perfect mix of relaxation and entertainment.
Take the beach, for example. Superbly organized facilities offer a whole host of pleasures, from waterskiing to windsurfing and beachvolley, to say nothing of the restaurants and hotels that are among the best to be found on the Riviera. And, perhaps most important of all, there is no end of wide open spaces.
After a day on the beach, you can choose between the best 18 hole golf course on the Adriatic and some 130 tennis courts frequented by champions of the stature of Panatta and Pietrangeli.
