Fishing Boats in the Colourful Leonardo da Vinci Harbour in Cesenatico, Italy

Click for fullscreen mode

Cesenatico's port canal was surveyed and drawn by Leonardo da Vinci at the request of Cesare Borgia, as part of his plans to fortify the nearby town of Cesena.

The Leonardo da Vinci harbour of Cesenatico is built very effectively and doesn't have as much trouble as other harbours of getting to much sand into it. It's narrow and long. It divides the city in two big zones, Ponente in the North and Levante in the South.

At the end of the harbour, you'll also find a few very colourful museum boats.

Cesenatico lies around 20 kilometers North East of Rimini on the East Coast of Italy.
