Driving along the five kilometers-long
promenade, one of the most suggestive in
Italy, you will understand the reason why
this place is named “Riviera delle Palme”
(Palms Riviera): it is bordered by a line of
7000 palms of twenty different species,
alternated between oleanders and flowers.
The promenade is wonderful: it has been
recently renovated and its 8 kilometers long
cycle track will make you fully enjoy the
spectacle offered by a luxuriant vegetation.
Benedetto, a city with 50,000 inhabitants,
besides having an important fishing port and
a lively fish market that sells sea products
over entire Italy, is one of the most
visited seaside resort along the middle
Adriatic coast, and it is loved for its long
beach, its palms that grow even on the sand
and for its wide pineta.
At the port it is also possible to rent some
tourist boats and taking to the open sea to
enjoy some refreshing bathes or savoury fish
tastings offered on board.
A lot of evidences of the importance of the
sea for the history and the economics of San
Benedetto came from the sea, and now they
are preserved into the “Ichthyic Museum”
and the “Amphorae Museum”.
