“Very sweet, Burano or Comacchio style canal”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

If in Cesenatico, you should not miss this canal. It has the style of some of the Venetian lagoon islands or of Comacchio, a bit further north of Ravenna. There are fisher-boats moored along the canal which is lined on both side with pedestrianised streets. There are a few quaint shops along the canal and, although touristy, it does not feel too much this way due to the presence of real fisher-boats with their nets and other gear

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Beautiful place if you are not disturbed by working fishing boats.

According to my Italian friends, the restaurants at the North side of the channel are better and less expensive.

“absolutely stunning”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We came upon Porto canale whilst travelling down to rimini and I'm glad we did, it is picture perfect. Despite being a working port the look and feel of it is almost like it was set up for the tourist. Didn't have a lot of time here but would have liked to linger longer.

“Worth staying awhile”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Firstly You. Eyed to remember this is a working port which was designed by Leonardo da Vinci to stop the harbour entrance from silting up and it is spectacular on a warm evening with a glass of chilled wine watching the fishing boats coming in and trying to decide which of the great restaurants along the quay to eat at when we stayed there was a free classical evening at the mouth of the harbour which just added to the wonderful evening
A joy
