  • According to Cesena, also worth a visit is the Malatesta fortress, a fortress created to defend Cesena. Surrounded by a beautiful park, we haven't had time to go around with the Guide. Still worth going to.

  • One of the many wonders of Cesena; is great for walking in quiet, alone or with friends. As you climb to the fortress, you are overwhelmed by the medieval atmosphere that does distract the mind in an atmosphere of peace. Arrived at the entrance, there is a spacious garden under the walls of the fortress and the majestic towers create a cool shade. Would recommend taking a guided tour, well worth the effort, is an immersion in history, myths, legends and mystery. A unique cultural richness.

  • Impeccably preserved is stunning for its grandeur. Interesting guided tour of the tunnels taken internally the walls with all the pitfalls and tricks to defend fortress and city. I wish the Association who runs that can be renewed their contract.

  • Old fortress on the hill in the centre of the city. Was disappointed that you could not enter the towers or walk along the fortress walls while I was there. Mainly seem to be there to house the cafè. The walk up to it from the city is steep at points but is nicely laid out through the woods.
  • One of the best attraction of Cesena. Really nice view from the top of the city. Inside the fortress you can take a coffe in the bar, visit the museum of the agriculture (witch was not really interesting for me) and have a tour witch allows you to walk on the top of the walls of the castle. Unfortunately the guides are speaking only Italian so probably if you can't understand Italian you'll not be able to understand all the history and the evolution of the castle.
  • Tour times are inconsistent. But the Fortress and Bar are a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon relaxing.
  • Tourist place & good for walk
  • Nice renaissance fortress.
