Cervia – Ravenna

km 25


The first part of the “Rotta del Sole” starts under the shadows of Cervia and Classe’s pine forests, going through the areas of the river Bevano’s outlet, between the natural reserves of Ortazzo and Ortazzino. This is the wildest seaside area with the most biodiversity in the high Adriatic. At the end of Classe’s pine forest, the cathedral of Sant’Apollinare is the magical first look at Ravenna, world capital of the mosaic.
