Parco Marittimo

Ravenna boasts 35 kilometers of coastline and 9 beach towns that are all very different from each other, where beaches, dunes, pine forests and wetland live together and create a unique system: this is PARCO MARITTIMO, a project of redevelopment of the coastline adding value to the great and unique environment of Ravenna, making it more and more accessible, sustainable and inclusive.

The key element of this area is nature, with characteristic conformations especially near the mouths of the rivers.

The pine forests behind the coast outlines fascinating views that perfectly blend with the blue of the sea and the beach establishments, offering unique and suggestive experiences to all visitors with their services.


Ravenna’s Parco Marittimo allows the coexistence of different landscapes to be protected and areas dedicated to humans.

Sea, beaches, beach establishments, sports and accommodation facilities, pine forests as natural links with the wetlands behind, brackish lagoons, and the freshwater of the rivers create a network of places harmoniously connected with each other.

Respecting the delicate context, the cycle and pedestrian paths behind the beach establishments adapt to the edge of the pine forest and lies on the dunes, taking care of the characteristics and morphology of the place, also thanks to the choice of materials of natural origin.

Everyone can enjoy the view of the sea thanks to various rest areas on the paths that cross the pine forest in the area closest to the sea and wooden platforms with seats and panoramic viewpoints at the end of the paths.


The cycle and pedestrian paths characterizing Ravenna’s Parco Marittimo – connecting the coastline to the backcountry – are built on pre-existing paths but redevelop the ways of access to the beach establishments and increase the number of viewpoints on the sea with accessible rest areas. The area thus becomes a model of soft and sustainable mobility.

Reconnecting the dunes with the pine forest moves vehicle parking areas away and limits the traffic, giving trees and nature their space back, in line with the mobility plan of the Po Delta Park and preserving and protecting plant and animal species in the area.

The project of Parco Marittimo aims at improving the use of spaces and tourist resources, with an eye to sustainability, accessibility and sustainable mobility, with respect for the natural environment and its characteristics, ensuring an improvement in the quality of life of citizens and visitors.
