Ancona is a city on the northeast coast of Italy, located in the Marches region and bordering the Adriatic Sea. The port of Ancona is a pivotal transport link domestically, but even more so internationally, connecting Italy with Greece, Croatia and Albania.
An array of underwhelming port towns are scattered across the Mediterranean, disappointing passengers disembarking the ferry who are on the lookout for a picturesque spot to enjoy some fresh food and drink. Luckily, Ancona has shaken its tag as a bland base of ugly streets and uninspiring culture; you can climb the challenging walking trails that afford a breathtaking view of the Adriatic Sea or wander around the charming piazzas populated with locals and tourists enjoying the warm evening air.
If you continue your stroll around the meandering alleyways, you’ll stumble upon the plethora of Roman ruins that emblazons the Italian northeast coast. Snap a few photos of the ruins before moving on to the archaeological museum showcasing a wealth of history from the region.
The town is very small so you can traverse everywhere that’s worth visiting on two feet.
Ancona is about 300 km from Rome on the Adriatic coast. Ancona is connected to the Italian motorway network by the A14 motorway. Ancona ferry port is easily found once in the vicinity of Ancona.
The train station is in the centre of Ancona at piazza Rosselli 1. The town centre is walking distance from the Port. For more information on train times and prices, please visit the Trenitalia website.
