Cesena, surrounded by green hills and with the sea not far away, is a lively and surprising town, quiet and never chaotic, and above all rich in historical monuments, places of interest and fascinating views. The "city of the three Popes", so called because three Popes of the Catholic Church were born here, holds priceless artistic treasures, such as the Malatesta Library, the Malatesta Fortress, the beautiful Piazza del Popolo (People's Square), the Palazzo Pretorio and the Bonci Theater, which tell the story of a city with a past of great splendor.
The historic center of Cesena is a gem suitable for a stroll through its suggestive streets dotted with characteristic restaurants, bars and pubs that make it one of the liveliest cities in this piece of Romagna.
The diamond of the city is the historic Malatesta Library, the first civic library built in Italy in the 15th century and included in the Unesco World Memory Register. Designed by Matteo Nuti, the Library was born inside a Franciscan Convent in 1454 and is now perfectly preserved. Inside it there are about 250,000 volumes, including precious incunabulum, scrolls and ancient manuscripts, thanks to which it is possible to admire the work of the scribes.
