The Romagna territory extends between the area of the sea and the coast, and the Apennine mountains introduced by the gentle hills behind Bellaria Igea Marina.

Here you will find the ideal environments for walks, trekking and cycling routes, famous all over the world. It was here, that the great Champion Pantani trained, and also other great cycling athletes

The important races in the cycling world, such as the Granfondo 9 colli, the most panoramic Granfondo degli Squali and in recent years also several itineraries of the Giro d’Italia, take place every year on our territory.
The Adriatic coast, with its flat sea breeze and wide cycling areas, rises gradually, immersing itself in rural and hilly landscapes, crossing the history of this ancient but young land. If you love to travel kilometers by bicycle, you will be enchanted by the historical and artistic beauties of our land.
Medieval villages equipped to accommodate groups of cyclists who after an enchanting journey between the sea and the hills, stop for a refreshment in the classic taverns typical of our hills
