Bellaria – Igea Marina and the surrounding area offer a colorful range of experiences from top notch cuisine, nature and points of artistic or historical interest.
Those searching for active holidays aimed at discovering the true essence of a destination can put together their own personal trip to Bellaria – Igea Marina and its surroundings, engaging in their favourite activities:
Romagna’s landscape is incredibly varied: it ranges from the soft sand beaches to the gentle vineyard-clad hills: the same that, as they progress up the Appennini mountains, turn into rugged and steep mountains where you can even ski in the winter.
The same variety is shown when it comes to natural parks. These extend from the ancient woods of the “Parco delle Foreste Casentinesi” park to the peaceful cane fields around the “Parco del Delta del Po” (river Po’s outlet park).
VILLAGES AND CASTLES
“Say Romagna, say Rock”. Countless fortresses and castles enrich the inner land, having popped up on top of the hills back in the days of the Malatestas’ reign, often spawning enchanting little villages at their feet. The ones that stick out closest to Igea Marina are Santarcangelo di Romagna, Montebello and Verucchio.
WELLNESS AND SPA
A healthy body and a healthy soul find the perfect balance in a day at the spa (“Terme”), and Romagna has got a wealth of hot springs, often known since ancient times, offering wellness, as well as beauty, treatments.
“Rimini Terme” and “Terme di Riccione” are but the closest to Bellaria – Igea Marina’s area. The region also features “Terme di Cervia”, “Terme della Fratta”, and a bit farther “Bagno di Romagna” and “Riolo Terme”.
Inhabited since the time of yore, Romagna’s cities preserve traces of a past made of empires’ flaming glory, Medieval winds of war and the Renassaince’s calm beauty.
Rimini shows a sheer split between ancient Rome and the Malatestas’ rule, while Ravenna shines with Byzantium’s gold. They both form an insipiring counterpart to Forlì‘s XX stringency righteousness and Urbino‘s harmony typical of its Renassaince.
Bellaria – Igea Marina and its surroundings are a sportsman’s paradise. Here you’ll have access to the wide open beach, equipped with beach volley and beach tennis courts, and to the green areas of the “Parco del Gelso” park. And let’s not forget the “Gelso Sport” sporting centre, with its pools, fitness and wellness centres, along with the local “Circolo del Tennis” club. Motors’ aficionados will have a chance to pick the go kart and mini-bike tracks in San Mauro Mare or the Olympus in Misano World Circuit.
