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.

Reviews of Ancona

TravelDreamFamilyTolentino, 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!

GianCiMagliano Sabina, Italy

It fits very well, yet, for a flight of love, what has to offer is an enchanting space of streets and squares to get lost in the city, low cost B & B with the possibility to enjoy the sea, both, if someone is willing, to take a trip to the nearby hills, backpackers and tranquility. Ideal for those who want to take a few days off and do not know where to go, here you can eat well and relax with peace of mind.
