The “Grotte del Passetto” hidden caves in Ancona

Within walking distance of the central streets of Ancona, one of the most beautiful places in the city

The “Passetto” beach can be accessed from the city centre of Ancona by going down the long white staircase under the “Monumento ai Caduti” WWI monument, or by walking through the park on the left of the monument. You can relax in one of the beach establishments or take a walk by the sea to the caves. 

WHY CHOOSE  THE “GROTTE DEL PASSETTO”: along this stretch of coast you can admire the “grottini”, the colorful shelters dug inside the cliff in the early 1900s by the fishermen to harbour their boats. Today their heirs, known as “grottaroli”, spend their summers here eating fresh fish and relaxing. The various coloured wooden doors and the lights make the Passetto caves a very magical and attractive place both by day and night.
