Savio/Mirabilandia is a little district of Ravenna, located by the homonymous river between Ravenna and Milano Marittima, near the Pine forest of Classe.
In this place are the amusement park Mirabilandia, Italy's largest one, with many attractions and live performances, and Safari Ravenna, a zero-impact natural area with many animal species to see up close.
Moreover, in Savio is the Villaggio delle Cicogne (Village of the storks), an equipped area you can visit on your own, in which a multitude of bird species and mammals live freely and are perfectly integrated with the surrounding territory. The stars of this place are of course white storks, to which the park itself owes its name.
Unmissable is the Dedalo labyrinth, the biggest corn maze in Europe covering a 10-hectare wide area.
Savio/Mirabilandia is the starting point of a series of paths that cross the pine forest of Classe, touching the green area of 1° Maggio Park and then reaching some places of interest, such as the Bevano river mouth. The paths to walk are many, and one example is the Querce di Dante one, an itinerary of 4 km.
If you love water sports, this area is full of surprises. There is Mirabeach, the water park of Mirabilandia with sun beds and umbrellas, fine sand, swimming pools and water slides; then, there is the Lago della Standiana artificial lake, frequented by fishermen, sportspeople and canoers; lastly, at the Lago Delle Ghiaine lake you can practice water skiing and wakeboard.
From here, it’s very simple to reach Ravenna and admire its astonishing mosaics and Unesco World Heritage monuments. Moreover, from Savio/Mirabilandia you can easily reach the nearby city of arts, and, through the state route Adriatica (SS16), heading south, you will find the seaside towns of Cervia, Milano Marittima, Cesenatico and Rimini.
The whole territory is a chest of natural wonders you can discover starting from the Visitor Centres of the Po Delta Park, but it also offers attractions and entertainment for families, like the big amusement park of Mirabilandia and Safari Ravenna.
