Medieval Rocca
Feb 2020 • Solo
This medieval fortress built by the Malatesta family dominates the beautiful town of Cesena. Starting from the adjacent Piazza del Popolo AND going along a short and pleasant climb through a beautiful park, you will meet the mighty Malatesta Fortress. The entrance to the fortress is free but a guided tour is recommended to understand the history and anecdotes that have happened there. , it is said that even Leonardo da Vinci passed through these parts. Fascinating and suggestive to walk the walkways of the Rocca, inside there is also a small refreshment and summer often events such as concerts and parties are organized.

Fascinating Castle
Oct 2019 • Family
Don’t leave Cesena without visiting. We had a fascinating tour from Ricardo in English. Only 5 euros each. The history of the castle is the history of Italy with the Pope, the British, Napoleon, Hitler and Leonardo deVinci all involved through the centuries. Lots of hidden parts with traps for invaders and historic weapons, armour and furniture to view.

Tour a Castle from the 14th Century!
May 2018
This remarkable castle complex has stood in Cesena since the late 1300’s and actually stands on top of two previous defensive fortifications. We learned that during the 1400’s, the fortification was completely renovated and improved upon and became the main defensive outpost for the city of Cesena.

We saw the castle from the Piazza and walked up steps and around the castle before we found a gate that led to where you could tour the castle. Inside the castle you will also find the Museum of Agriculture.

Great site for history and for entertainment s
La Rocca is a fortress By Malatesta family dated 15 th century, and really worthy a visit to the walls outer and inner parts as well as to the agricultural museum with guided tour. Apart from that there is a very nice programme every week with music , lecturers, theater and do on where you can also eat and drink. We are going to have a birthday party for our daughter because they are really taking care of this place after many years of abandonment.
Really to try!

What a beautiful welcoming place to visit
Oct 2014 • Couples
With only a few hours to spare on a sunny Sunday morning this October, we went to the Rocca Malatestiana. The feel was just perfect for me: culture, history, good food, some music, friendly atmosphere. A mix of young couples, families and friends sharing this beautiful place.
I wished I lived in Cesena! (and the beer menu was quite extensive...)
