Marco Pantani wasn’t just a great athlete but also a real Romagnolo DOC("Controlled designation of origin"), well known all over the world for his challenges as a professional cyclist.
The Romagna, but especially Cesenatico, the birthplace of the “Pirata”, often likes to remind his champion and has even dedicated a monument to him.
In summer 2013 Cesenatico promoted the “Notte Gialla”, in memory of its champion, a stunning event taking place in the beautiful setting of Piazza Costa in the heart of Cesenatico, attended by a lot of sport celebrities and common people reviving the myth of Marco Pantani by telling anecdotes of his life and the major professional challenges.
Cesenatico is one of the most favored destinations of Romagna for cycling fans who want to spend a cycling holiday in the name of excitement, fun and healthy sport.
The “Notte Gialla” is a long-awaited event by all cycling and “Pirata” fans. You can enjoy the show by staying at the three stars bike hotel Tiffany Hotel and Resort; a hotel well equipped with all services for those who wish to spend their cycling holiday in Cesenatico, on the Adriatic Coast.
