Situated on Italy's Adriatic coast, the historic fishing village of Cesenatico is a real catch. The old town provides postcard-perfect scenes at every turn, with its quaint, colorful abodes, and traditional sailboats bobbing on the canal waters. Here, it's all about relaxed pleasures, from lazy afternoons gorging on handmade gelato, to dining on locally caught seafood al fresco before taking a waterside passeggiata.

When you've had your fill of chilling out, there's plenty of attractions too. The Museo della Marineria curates the history of Cesenatico's seafaring and fishing traditions, while the Porto Canale, the heart of old town, was the project of none other than Leonardo da Vinci.
