The Festival City of Ravenna is promoting bicycle tourism. The project, promoted by the National Confederation of Artisanship and Small and Medium Enterprises of Ravenna, Ferrara and Forlì-Cesena, is part of a more extensive project of the provincial administrations of the three cities to create a local tourism system. The territory has numerous excellent attractions: the parks of the Po Delta and the Casentino Forests; important artistic and cultural cities, Ravenna, Ferrara, Faenza, Cesena and Forlì; a series of smaller towns and small villages full of charm and seaside resorts like Cervia-Milano Marittima, Cesenatico, Comacchio and its beaches. The objective is to connect these various attractions with cycling paths that make best use of tourism, territorial, cultural and natural landscape resources. Cycling tourism is being promoted as a form of ‘slow tourism’, which can become an important resource for enriching tourism offerings and deseasonalising them
