As for sailing, 800 berths at Ravenna and 300 at Cervia Milano Marittima are quite impressive figures in a country where marinas are few and far between, but what distinguishes them is their superb organization, their modern facilities and the sailing schools worthy of the region's seafaring tradition.
Water skiing is also well served by fine schools and facilities. It is no accident that the first waterskiers to cross the Adriatic took their first "steps" here at Cervia. Swimming, the most natural of water sports, also needs its own facilities. In and around Ravenna there are hundreds of pools, many of them indoor, Olympic size installations. At Cervia Milano Marittima alone there are more than 50 pools in the town's hotel complexes. But not all sports lovers are quite so dynamic, and the district of Ravenna is not short of gentler activities. Bowls pitches will afford some lively relaxation and fishing is a perennially popular pastime. At cervia Milano Marittima anglers can take to the sea in boats, while in Ravenna you just have to walk along the breakwaters in the port to reach open sea: some 5 km. out from the coast.

At Ravenna and environs, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
