Ancona, blue skies and sea

The perfume of the sea in an open-air museum. A mixture of striking views and culture. Portonovo and Passetto can't be missed.

Since ancient times Ancona has been a hub for commercial activities and still remains an important crossroad for trade.

Thanks to its elbow shape facing the sea, Ancona is the only city in Italy where it is possible to see both sunrise and sunset over the sea. 

From the magnificent “San Ciriaco” Cathedral, set on the hilltop of “Colle Guasco” you can enjoy a breathless view of the city of Ancona. 


Walking through the city streets, you can admire the majestic arch “Arco di Traiano”, the ancient gateway “Porta Clementina”  and visit the “Museo Archeologico delle Marche”, one of the most famous Italian archeological museums as well as the “Museo Tattile Omero”, a tactile museum where every item can be touched and held. 

If you like you can go shopping around the city centre in one of the chic boutiques and trendy shops of Ancona. Strolling along “Viale della Vittoria” avenue, you will arrive at the “Passetto”, a wide terrace overlooking the Conero Riviera. You can then go down the long white staircases to the beaches.


The harbor is the vibrant heart of the city. Artistic and cultural summer events are concentrated in the “Lazzaretto” neighbourhood where you can also go out at happy hour for an evening with friends. 

Suspended between sky and sea, this Doric town will allow you to dream!
