Ancona at a Glance
Ancona is the capital of the central region of Marche in Italy. The region is home to gorgeous Adriatic beaches, ancient villages and rolling, sloping countryside. The region is predominantly mountainous and hilly as the Apennine mountain range that runs down the backbone of Italy take up most of the Marche region, the rest is made up of coastal towns and villages.
Ancona is a fascinating destination in one of the most undisturbed and undiscovered regions of Italy, a great place to stay if you are looking to experience the atmosphere and sights of the beautiful Marche region.Ancona is an important port in the Adriatic; it has ferry links all over the region to Croatia and Greece.
The city is home to a number of historic buildings and culturally significant monuments, yet still manages to retain its historic charm whilst having all the facilities of a modern 21st century coastal city.
The Ancona Cathedral is a must see if you are visiting the city. The cathedral sits on a hilltop overlooking the city, providing unparalleled views of the city, the surrounding Marche region and the Adriatic. The temple is constructed over the ruins of an ancient Roman temple, some of which can be seen under the cathedral.
The Parco del Cardeto is a lovely park in the outskirts of the city in the hills which provides fantastic views and a relaxing break from the bustle of the port.
Monte Conero is the highest point along the Adriatic coast. The beaches around the base of the promontory and along the surrounding coastline are some of the most beautiful in the region, with white sands and blue waters that are perfect for swimming and soaking up the Italian sunshine.
