A remarkable visit to the floating section of Cesenatico Museum

 Falling asleep - Cesenatico Maritime Museum Floating Section

Multicolored sails greet the visitors of Cesenatico every day between Easter and September. A rainbow show that cannot be missed even from the road or from a train.

Dozens of traditional sail boats stretch along the old canal designed by Leonardo da Vinci.  The wooden  hulls painted in bright colors. The typical details such as the “eyes” on the bow, more or less stylized. Red sails , or ochre or orange. Decorated with symbols which denote the property of the various families of fishermen.  A tradition which has become a true “sailing heraldry”.

This is the floating section of Cesenatico Maritime Museum. On display on the canal are different typologies of boats that once (between the end of the XIXth and the mid XXth century) were used in the Adriatic sea.

Walk there late in the afternoon, when the last sun rays give volume to every shadow and the yellow light starts to vanish into blue.  The sight is spectacular while the calm waters of the canal reflect lights and sails.

Then, just look on the opposite side.  Dozens  of bar and restaurants set their tables on the street. You can enjoy a drink or a meal while enjoying this beautiful vision.

Usually the coast of Romagna is famous for different pleasures: nightlife, discos, transgression. This is a more peaceful alternative, much more enjoyable for families and photographers, and absolutely free!

P.S.: The boats are hoisted and hauled down daily except Monday, from Easter until the end of September, but only with good weather.
