This route will enable you to discover the Roman Centuriation of Cesena, one of the best preserved remains in Italy of what in ancient times served as a complex state farmland organization system. Starting in Cesenatico, on the coast, the itinerary extends over the silent plain that stretches between the sea and the hills. Cycling along almost square-plan roads, you will notice the typical reticular organisation of the surrounding fields, interrupted only by the winding of the river Savio and by thick rows of poplars.
