Four places in one town, this is Gatteo. Each place has its own characteristics and peculiarities and has something to offer to the visitors, whether they come by chance or by choice. The main town with its artistic and historical heritage; Sant’Angelo, the birthplace of Secondo Casadei, the author of the world famous “Romagna Mia”; Fiumicino; Gatteo mare, the little gem of the Adriatic coast.
The fine sand slopes gently toward the sea, which is always calm thanks to the rock barriers: a wonderful outdoor swimming pool. 700 meters of beach well equipped to satisfy every need, even that of enjoying the sound of the sea waves, comfortably lying on the bed.
There are a lot of commercial activities, where you can find all you need: from the more suitable dresses for a holiday, to the typical products to bring home like a sweet souvenir. You can not also miss the typical Italian market, full of everything! A good excuse for a stroll through the streets of the town, looking at the showcases and shopping with pleasure.
Combine holiday with fitness: a choice in the name of well-being. During the summer season Gatteo mare is a wide outdoor gym. Bicycle and water sports, five-a-side football matches, runs on the beaches and the many sports activities that take place in the gardens, on the beach and in the sea.
In the land dominated by Guidi and Malatesta families, also a little town like Gatteo has big treasures to be discovered: come for a walk through the streets of the main town and you will be amazed: the Malatesta castle, the church of San Lorenzo, the parish church of San Rocco, the municipal library.
If you think about nature, you probably imagine the sea: the flora and the fauna that inhabit it, the activities it allows to practice. But Gatteo mare has a peculiarity: it rises at the mouth of the historical famous Rubicon river, which offers naturalistic riches to discover.
From food to music, tradition is a fundamental element of Romagna. Gatteo is strongly linked to the traditions: it dedicates a festival to an ancient sweet and thousands and more tributes to the Liscio, being the birthplace of Secondo and Raoul Casadei.
