  • Timea Vitez

    Timea discovered yoga after having a serious car accident many years ago. She began studying and practicing on her own from an old book a friend had given her. Discovering a great passion for Yoga, a few years later she ventured towards her first trip to India where she took part in a Yoga Teacher Training program of 200 hours at The Rishikesh Yog Peeth School. Happy with her first experience, but eager to go more in depth, she returned to Rishikesh several times over the next few years and repeated the same course experience numerous times.

Gabicce Mare is the northernmost commune of the Marche region, bordering on Emilia-Romagna. It rises on a small bay called Baia degli Angeli, in the last stretch of the Gulf of Rimini, on the northern slopes of Mount San Bartolo, home to the homonymous park and the southern boundary of Romagna as a historical-geographical region. Gabicce is therefore the last municipality of the Riviera Romagnola, from which it is possible to have a very wide view from the promontory of Gabicce Monte, where you can see the skyscrapers of Rimini and Cesenatico as well as the hinterland with the massifs of Monte Carpegna and Monte Titan (on which stands the Republic of San Marino). In the communal territory flow the Tavollo torrent and its tributary Taviolo, joining the city center.

Nearby places

  • Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport (BLQ) - 1 hour and 20 minutes
  • Cattolica railway station - 10 minutes
  • Federico Fellini International Airport (RMI) - 20 minutes
  • San Marino - 1 hour

During the retreat, you will be served three health daily vegetarian meals. Refreshments and herbal tea are also available. Additional meals and drinks are not included.

Along the Riviera there is nothing like this. It is a small naturalistic jewel with the cliffs and the promontory of Mount San Bartolo that reach to the beaches. The mountain is also a nature reserve and is perched on panoramic trails overlooking the entire Romagna Riviera. You can go cycling or explore the local flora and fauna. Although small in size, Gabicce in its part of the sea houses a hundred hotels with excellent facilities, equipped beaches, sports, entertainment and leisure activities.

Take a ride on a train. The blue line connects Gabicce Mare to Gabicce Monte along the panoramic road. The red line connects Gabicce Mare to Gradara, the medieval village that houses the Castle of Paolo and Francesca, lovers of Dante's Inferno.

Have a bath at Vallugola Bay, a natural creek that embraces Gabicce and Castel di Mezzo with a pebble beach and clear water.

Dive into the traces of the missing city of Valburna, a legendary city that is said to have been submerged off Gabicce and Baia Vallugola.

Eat in one of the panoramic riders of Gabicce Monte with views across the Romagna Riviera.

Trekking in the natural park of Monte San Bartolo

An uncontaminated territory of 1600 hectares that lays 12 km of coast where park and sea embrace creating natural sandstone cliffs with spectacular views. This is the Natural Park of Monte San Bartolo, a natural reserve at 200 m altitude stretching between Gabicce Mare and Pesaro. They cross it on footpaths, on mountain bikes (challenging routes for hiking) or on horseback.

YOGAMEA recommend a hike in the Park for authentic contact with nature, for breathtaking panoramic views, to reach the wild beaches such as Fiorenzuola di Focara, but also to spot migratory birds. Mount San Bartolo is the only relief of the coast descending from Venice, serves as a point of reference for the orientation of migratory birds: every spring there are over 3,500 birds of prey of different species, including the hawk falcon, the sword falcon and the falcon cuckoo.
