Milano Marittima is a fraction of the town of Cervia in the heart of Romagna perfect to spend a weekend or more with children if you are looking for a relaxing place with nature, sand beaches and of course good cuisine!
In Milano Marittima you can rest under an umbrella and enjoy nature taking your bike for a ride along the shaded avenues of the city center or get to the pine forest of the Park, stop for a picnic and to play with the farm animals and come back to the beach for the dinner.
But if you love the nature you can’t miss the salt works of Cervia at sunset with flamingos walking elegantly in the water and the creek Bevano, a park to be explored for those who love the great outdoors, with its many species of birds. And if you love shipping there is the center of the city with the evening walk, the market and the harbour to meet the fishermen and buy some fresh fish.
We love this area and we decided to go back for more, in winter, to see Cervia illuminated by Christmas lights and his crib salt. So if you are looking for a place in Romagna Region where spend some days with your kids I try to give you some information below.
