In Ravenna it is time, as every year, to celebrate the anniversary of the death of the Supreme Poet, with a Sunday full of initiatives. But you can also go back to the time of Theodoric with the historical re-enactments of Ravenna Historia Mundi, the Festival of history. For those with a sweet tooth, the appointment with the European Market of European Flavors in Cervia is unmissable: between churros, arancini, paella, wurstel and Argentine asado there is something for everyone! And, as always, after a “revel” weekend you can recover by disposing of some calories by doing physical activity, but always relaxing: we therefore suggest the Kalemana Festival on the beach of Punta Marina, for a Sunday between yoga and fitness activities.
Parties and festivals
In Cervia three delicious days are staged with the food and wine stands of the European Market of Flavors of Europe. In Ravenna at the weekend you can take a step back in time with the Ravenna Historia Mundi, the History Festival that offers a unique opportunity to relive scenes of daily life and activities in use in antiquity at 360 °.
