Ancona, Italy

Travel to Ancona

Ancona is the capital of the Italian region called the Marches. It is an important port city on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. A part of its medieval center was bombed during World War II, but it is still full of ancient monuments and squares. Its medieval cathedral is set on the mountain overlooking at the gulf of Ancona and it is well worth a look. The ancient roman Trajan Arch is on the docks of the port. There is also a loved Memorial of the First World War (built during Fascism) on the waterfront. The city offers glorious vistas, on a coastline that extends from Pesaro, with mainly flat sandy beaches, to Mount Conero, with its rocky coast. The popular resort of Portonovo is at the Mount's base.

Many ferries link Ancona, and therefore Italy, to Croatia, Greece and Turkey.
