Casalborsetti is the northernmost seaside town among the beaches of Ravenna, the former Byzantine capital, and it’s not far from its city centre.
Once a small fishing village, today it’s a little and characteristic coastal town in the centre of the Po Delta Park, divided into two parts by its picturesque canal harbour.
The lush coastal pine forests, the beaches with their soft dunes and most of all its campsites make Casalborsetti a privileged destination for open-air tourism in direct contact with nature.
The natural oasis of Punte Alberete, the Pine Forest of San Vitale, the Valleys of Comacchio and Valle Mandriole ― located just a few kilometres north of the town ― offer suggestive and relaxing corners where you can walk and do sports activities, like nordic walking, bicycle touring or birdwatching.
From fish to meat, to the unmissable piadina: a multitude of local high-quality restaurants and pizzerias serve typical and genuine dishes you should definitely try.
As the other northern Ravenna beach towns (Marina Romea and Porto Corsini), Casalborsetti is a great departure point for exciting excursions in the surrounding nature and to visit the town of Comacchio.
If you’re eager to know some of the local history, then you should visit Fattoria Guiccioli, a historical building linked to the figure of Giuseppe Garibaldi and his wife Anita.
