Ancona Routes

The ferry port of Ancona is located on Italy's Adriatic coast, in the central region of Marche. The city of Ancona is easily accessible by rail and has roads running directly from Milan, Bologna and Rome that all run through or near the city. Ancona was founded from Syracuse about 390 BC. Its name is a modified transliteration of the Greek word for "elbow"; in fact, originally, the harbour to the east of the town was protected only by the promontory on the north, shaped like an elbow.

Ancona houses many amazing sights to explore, such as the marble Arch of Trajan located at the causeway on top of the harbour wall. The arch is on a high podium approached by a wide flight of steps and is an impressive landmark for arriving ships.

The town also features the Lazaretto and the fine late Gothic buildings of the churches of San Francesco and San Agostino and the Cathedral church of Saint Ciriaco, a fine Romanesque building in grey stone. Also interesting is the archaeological museum, which contains interesting pre-Roman objects from tombs in the district, and two Roman beds with fine decorations in ivory.
