Located in the Marche region of Italy, the city of Ancona is located around 280 km to the north east of Rome and is situated on the Adriatic Sea coast between the slopes of two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno and Monte Guasco. The city's port is popular with passenger traffic and is one of the main ports on the Adriatic Sea. There are many things to see and do in the city. The city's cathedral, Ancona Cathedral, is dedicated to Judas Cyriacus and was consecrated dating the 11th century and completed in 1189. The cathedral is characterised by its dodecagonal dome over the centre, which was altered by Margaritone d'Arezzo in 1270. The cathedral's exterior has a Gothic portal which is ascribed to Giorgio da Como (1228).
The city's port is popular for passengers travelling to countries surrounding the Adriatic Basin including Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Albania and Montenegro. Destinations available include Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Dubrovnik, Bari, Patras and Igoumenitsa. Facilities in the port include a cafe, toilets and a small shop. There is also short term and long term parking available. There are also designated parking bays for disabled drivers.
The Greek island of Corfu is located a short distance off the coast of mainland Greece and partly because of its lovely Mediterranean climate and beaches, is a very popular tourist destination. Compared to some of its island neighbours, Corfu is a very green island and is characterised by hot dry summers and winters that tend to be quite wet which helps the island's vegetation which includes over 2 million olive trees. Unlike the rest of Greece, the island never fell under the control of the Ottomans but because of its rule over the centuries by the Venetians, the French and the British, who left strong reminders of their cultures on the island, it has mainly become part of the Western rather than the Levantine world.
The Old Town of Corfu is wonderfully preserved and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains Renaissance, Baroque and Classical influences. Popular with tourists are its palaces, fortresses and Venetian public buildings that sit side by side with more modest buildings located along narrow cobbled streets and small secluded squares.
Ferry services from the island depart to destinations on the Greek mainland and to other, nearby, Greek islands.
