The Ravenna coast is situated in the northern part of the Adriatic, a sea with shallow seabeds (the average depth reaches 35m), originated from the interaction of various geomorphological mechanisms, such as the deposition of sedimentary material carried downstream by the rivers, the transport of coastal currents, the action of the wind and of the vegetation.

Ancient pinewoods and historical sites lie along the 35km-long coast of Ravenna, that is the perfect place for practising sports, tasting the excellent local cuisine, having fun and relaxing. Nine seaside resorts, namely Lido di Savio, Lido di Classe, Lido di Dante, Lido Adriano, Punta Marina Terme, Marina di Ravenna, Porto Corsini, Marina Romea and Casal Borsetti, offer a wide range of accommodation types (hotels, campings, holiday houses and apartments) and overlook fine sandy beaches equipped with modern facilities.

Just a few minutes away from Ravenna and its extraordinary cultural heritage, staying in a seaside resort represents a wonderful solution for a holiday combining the benefits of the seaside and the beauty of a city of art.

In the Adriatic flows the greatest concentration of rivers of the Mediterranean basin; for this reason, this sea is extraordinarily rich in plankton and has a big fish biodiversity. The fish population includes anchovies, shrimps, mullets, rock gobies, breams, flounders, cods, mackerels, cuttlefishes, soles, red mullets and Mediterranean scaldfishes and also clams, snails, mussels, tellinae and many more.
