The amusement parks on the coast are linked by BUS NAVETTA Costa – Parchi Edutainment. Its schedule and information about whether it still exists can be found on the sites of the amusement parks (for example, on the website of Italy in miniature).

The words “from the list” mean a list of beautiful villages ( or “orange flag” – a list of beautiful small towns (

For active travelers, it makes sense to look at the Romagna Visit Card, which give discounts for an insignificant cost (it was 12 euros, free for children). Link

1. Forli

Old town.

Transport – train

2. Terra del Sole, Castrocaro

Terra del Sole – city “from the list”, built in the 15th century at the request of Cosimo Medici as an “ideal” city.

Nearby is the town of Castrocaro, which has preserved its medieval look.

Transport: bus 91 from Forli.

3. Brisighella

Quite popular and visited, but a very small city “from the list” (it seems to be included in both).

About Brisighella

Transport – train from Faenza


4. Faenza

Homeland of faience. A small historical center and, of course, a ceramics museum (Museo internazionalle delle ceramiche, Link).

Transport – train

5. Dozza

A small village on a hill, surrounded by walls, with a small fortress. From the list. The main difference from other villages is that the walls are painted by modern artists.

About Dozza.

Transport – bus 101 from Imola.

6. Bologna

An original city with endless arcades that not everyone will like, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting. Besides the old center you can see two churches with sculptural masterpieces, two huge leaning towers and a couple of art and history museums.

Drivers need to be especially careful – the local authorities are catching strangers for big money, without warning that you cannot enter the center and it is very large area (everything is inside the ring). Prepare your route in advance.


7. Ferrara

The historic center is included in the UNESCO list.

9. Comacchio

An original town with canals.

10, 11. One of the parts of the Po Delta Natural Park – Valli Comacchio

Boating along the lagoon by water transport are indicated from the point Casone Foce (above, closer to Comaccio, 10) and below at S. Alberto (11). Flamingos promise. But it is not clear in what months they are there. The Internet says that flamingos spend the winter in Italy (that is, you have to wait for them there from October), but in some places they say, that flamingos began to nest, which means the spring-summer period (?). I saw information also about July-August.
