A seaside town in the Conero Riviera
A dip into colourful sea city with beautiful houses lit up in the daylight becomes a wonderful stroll along the promenade and an interesting nightlife.
Porto Recanati is a quiet and welcoming beach resort, ideal for families to spend a relaxing holiday.
Fully-equipped wide sandy beaches, a traffic-free seafront and local colorful houses make this fishing town truly unique. Walking through the streets and alleys of Porto Recanati you can stop to taste the local fish dishes in one of the many restaurants or go for a stroll along the main street “Corso Matteotti” and check out the many shops. During summer weekends the street turns into a pedestrian thoroughfare, and hosts antique and handicraft markets.
A TOWN RICH IN HISTORY
In the central square is the “Castello Svevo”, a medieval castle built as defense against pirates. Named after the tenor Beniamino Gigli from Recanati, the “Arena Gigli” was built in a large courtyard and in the summer offers a wide program of cultural events.
A few steps from the city center, you can visit an archeological site that revived the ancient Roman city of Potentia, testifying the origins of Porto Recanati as a Roman colony. In Scossicci, a suburb of Porto Recanati, you can also admire the “Chiesetta della Banderuola”, a small church standing in the area where the Holy House of Madonna stopped during its transition to Loreto.
Porto Recanati by bike
Porto Recanati is also characterized by extensive bike paths that run along the seafront and pass through the beautiful countryside to Loreto.
