Ancona Vacations

Founded by the Greeks, this port city on the Adriatic is the capital of the Marche region. The name itself means elbow, and in some ways Ancona is a joint, a connector, via ferry, between Italy, Croatia and Greece.

Tolentino, Italy

Visit Ancona it has a dry nice cathedral that you can visit. Some buildings in town offer Gothic architecture and there is still a cannon new the Arch of Trajan you can visit. You can also take a overnight Ferry (11hrs) over to Croatia on the other side of the Adriatic Sea. It does not run all year so make sure you check the schedules here.

Ok, not the most charming town in Italy, but it is home to a very affordable ferry to Albania...which then allows one to pass through Montenegro en route to Dubrovnik...a very pretty tour indeed!

Si preste molto bene, Ancora, per una fuga d'amore, quello che ha da offrirvi è uno spazio incantevole di vie e di piazze a perdersi per la città, B&B a basso costo con la possibilità sia di godere del mare, sia, se qualcuno è disposto, di farsi una gita nelle colline vicine, zaino in spalla e tranquillità.
Ideale per chi vuole prendersi qualche giorno di ferie e non sa dove andare, qui potrete mangiar bene e rilassarvi con tutta tranquillità.
