- In this sad period ravaged by the coronavirus, I am closed in the house but if I go out to my balcony I cannot avoid thinking that a few hundred meters from me there is this magnificent library, built in the mid-1400s by an incredibly enlightened man . Novello Malatesta built the first library open to all, so for the first time in history culture knowledge was available to everyone and not only to religious or the wealthy. Entering the library rooms you are enveloped in an incredible magic the books tell a story of a literally enchanted place, the Reading Room is positioned in a way that the light is always regular for reading and the temperature both in winter and summer is almost always constant. Extraordinary are the Miniati codes and the huge "choirs".
The diffusion of knowledge and culture for all helps to face periods of great difficulty for all humanity in a more conscious way.
A praise goes to the volunteers and guides who guide visitors in a very professional way through the library rooms
We will be able to overcome this virus all together and we will return to have the joy of also physically experiencing these beautiesWritten 15 March 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This place is beautiful! There's a boat that goes on the lake, but we haven't tried it. The drive there is simply stunning - Driving through think forest with extremely tall trees. The lake itself is gorgeous. Blue-sh green-ish color. We walked for about an hour or so on the trail that goes around the lake, which was fun.Written 3 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I visited the San Domenico Museums for the first time on the occasion of the exhibition about “Ulysses. The art and the myth ", which takes place here from February to October 2020 (but it remained closed for the national lockdown from about mid-March to mid-May).
I was unfamiliar with this vast complex of former religious buildings. In Italy there are many buildings of this kind reused for temporary exhibitions (as well as obviously for permanent museums; it is also the case of this museum), but this one in Forlì is among the largest, and it allows for exhibitions of great commitment, even in quantity.
This was also the case for this exhibition on Ulysses, very rich in items.
I am not a fond follower of temporary exhibitions, and I also had doubts about the formula of this specific exhibition: the aim to found an artistic exhibition spanning a multi-millennial period, justifying it only by a mythical figure like Ulysses, it seemed to me to be quite extrinsic.
But during the visit and after it I had to change my mind. So many cultural solicitations are received in the context of the exhibition, that in my opinion we should be grateful to the organizers for having realized it. From Etruscan sculpture to art deco, the figure of the Homeric hero has so attracted the imagination and creativity of the Western world that a trip to this exhibition has resulted in a splendid journey into our civilization.
Moreover, the high scientific level of the organizers made it possible to interpret the figure of Ulysses and the other characters who accompany him in the narrative, in an evocative and compelling way.
Overall, an exhibition center like that of the "San Domenico Museums" is truly precious, especially for Forlì which, no offense to the city, doesn't immediately come to mind as one of the most illustrious art cities in Emilia Romagna.Written 12 October 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- Really fascinating history of the fishing port of Cesenatico. Beautifully displayed with English translations. Superb exhibits in the museum and boats on the canal outside.
Cheap to visit and positively encouraged to touch the exhibits. Great for children and with excellent helpful staff.Written 9 July 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Visited in September 2019 , found the whole place exceptionally moving , I didn’t know who Pantani was but husband did , but I learned so much about this very talented cyclist who died in such a tragic way. I think whoever organised the museum did very well and there was lots of interesting things both to see and read.
If in the area a must for cycling fans.Written 14 July 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We've visited Bagno twice now, and our 4 year old son loves the gnome walk. If you think of all of the income generated by the gnomes for the town - including all the souvenirs sold - its a shame that a small amount of that income is not directed to maintaining the gnome houses. The path itself is fine, and on our last visit the fences had obviously recently been repaired. But the houses - one house (the library) had been badly damaged, with the door ripped off and the wooden books disturbed by presumably little hands. Our 4 year old was disturbed as to why the house was 'messed up'. The other houses are falling to pieces, with roofs falling off and lots of mud splattered up over the windows so its not possible to see inside. The spider's web had fallen down, and again we had to make up a story for our child as to why this was the case. Yes, there is a high influx of visitors, but why not have a weekly or monthly program of maintenance, paid for by the tourist tax (!) to maintain and repair the gnome walk. Its a shame, as its a lovely idea that is just not maintained very well.Written 18 May 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Shops and shops from A>Z with huge Iper Coop together with self service,pizza,Paolino arrosticeria++etc. Another enormous advantage for a massive Castrorama/Leroy that never bored any handyMan or Fai da Te..!!Written 16 December 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Generally good beach with a very clear sand which is cleaned every day. Not far from the hotels.
We visited the beach because we were in a partner hotel so it was free for us, if not I think it’s a little expensive for 8€/day/person. The good thing is that you’ll have always the same bad, there’s a map of bads and the first day you’re accompanied to your bad by the staff. You have also a half day entrance/week at the beach’s swimming pool witch is very crowded.
We didn’t try the bar because we were in all inclusive at the hotel.
Unfortunately there are a lot of algae in the first 5 meters of the sea, but nothing else negative concerning the sea witch is recommended for the children.
You’re not borried too much by ambulant sellers.
There are children playing area.
In generally a good place to recommend.Written 17 August 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Evening entertainment for the kids which can make a hole in your pockets :) A fun place to make the kids happy in the evening. They even have a real train that runs around this place and comes out to the street and gives your kids a ride.Written 28 July 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Went there on a hot day in August and hiked for about 1,5 hours to the aquacheta only to find it was completely dried out. However, the walk itself takes you along a stream and through the forest which is totally worth it. Walking through the trees it is nice and cool and there are only a few climbs along the route. The beginning of the trail is very nice as well as you find several places to stop and sit in/near the river (lots of people swimming) or at some picknick tables. The walk back from the fall took little more than one hour as we did not stop for the view.Written 23 August 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
