Ancona Guide

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.

Stari Grad Guide

Stari Grad is a popular location that is a gateway to the Paklenica National Park and lies around 45 km to the north east of Zadar. The city is situated on the northern side of the island of Hvar in the Dalmatia region of Croatia and lies at the east of a long protected bay and is thought to be one of the oldest towns in Europe. Buses make the town easy to reach, stopping in the centre, as well as outside of the Hotel Alan on the Dr. Franje Tudmana. Many people come to Stari Grad to take advantage of the plentiful camp sites there, especially since the adjacent National Park does not permit camping.

By wandering around Stari Grad's centre, along its narrow streets and through small squares, it is not hard to appreciate its historic past and perhaps its most popular attraction is Tvrdalj, which is a large a well preserved castle that once belonged to the Croatian poet Petar Hektorovic. Notice the Latin and Croatian inscriptions in the walls and the statue of Petar Hektorovic in front of the castle.

From the town's port, ferry services operate to Pescara, Ancona, Rijeka, Korcula, Dubrovnik and Mljet.
