Cesena is in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy, south of Ravenna and west of Rimini, on the Savio River. Only about 9 miles from the Adriatic Sea, Cesena is at the foot of the Apennines, providing visitors with the contrast of both hilly and coastal landscapes close by.
The city is home to a variety of sites to see, including the Palazzo Ghini, which is the best known of the aristocratic Ghini family, and has been the site of many archeological finds indicating that several Roman buildings once stood here. The Art Collegection of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Cesena is housed in a building which used to be a Celestine monastery. The city is also home to the first public library in Europe which was listed in UNESCO ‘Memoire du Monde’ list.
Cesena railway station, opened in 1861, forms part of the Bologna-Ancona railway, and is situated at Piazza Giorfio Sanguinetti, to the north east of the city centre.
