Nature, food and wine: the salt route


We are in Cervia. We meet at the Darsena Comunale (Municipal Dock). From Via Nazario Sauro we go into Borgo Marina, as far as the “Pantofla”Circolo dei Pescatori (Fishermen's Club), a place to enjoy traditional fish-based cuisine.


We cross the bridge and find ourselves surrounded by three imposing buildings, the Magazzino del Sale Darsena (Dock salt warehouse), theMagazzino Torre (Tower warehouse) the site of the MUSA salt museum and theTorre San Michele (St. Michael’s tower).
