Where do you want to go?
Tucked in between the bay on the Adriatic shore and the Marche region hills, the port city Ancona is distinctly split into two contrasting parts: the historic Monte Guasco and the modern town. The best starting point is the ancient Roman Amphiteatre with meticulous mosaics decorating its thermal bath remnants. The white and pink marble Cathedral of San Ciriaco is another must-see attraction, as well as the Pinacoteca Comunale, a stunning gallery with masterpieces by Lotto, Titian and other old masters.
The beautiful, evocative countryside around Ancona has enough attractions for days of hiking, water sports and photo safaris. The romantic Numana, the quaint Sirolo village, the gothic style Santuario della Santa Casa in Loreto are just some of the possible excursion destinations. Guided trekking and climbing Alpine tours as well as rafting, kayaking and canoeing are perfect active holiday options.
