A JOURNEY THROUGH THE FLAVOURS OF THE SEA ALONG THE EMILIA-ROMAGNA COAST
The Emilia-Romagna stretch of the Adriatic coast is strongly characterised by seafaring traditions and an enviable variety of seafood dishes.
The ideal itinerary to follow in order to taste the wide variety of local fish dishes winds through ten seaside towns: from Goro to Cattolica, via Porto Garibaldi, Comacchio, Ravenna, Cervia, Cesenatico, Bellaria, Igea Marina, Misano Adriatico, Rimini and Riccione. Highlights are the wild clams of Goro and Comacchio eel. Marina di Ravenna is home to the wild mussel, while in Cervia the cuttlefish reigns supreme. Travelling a little further south, the “blue” fish of Cesenatico is delicious grilled. Of course, no seafood menu would be complete without stewed whelks in Bellaria Igea Marina or caramote prawns in Rimini. Naturally, those with a taste for squill fish should stop off in Riccione before heading to Misano to enjoy an excellent sole. Our journey ends in Cattolica, for a plateful of spaghetti with Chamelea Gallina clams.
But there is more. All along the Adriatic coast visitors can also enjoy hake, mackerel, red mullet, squid and gurnard, prawns, sardines and anchovies, and the list goes on.
A real whirlpool of sea flavours.
