Ancona is a tucked away escape destination on the Adriatic coast. There are fantastic beaches with some world class hotels perched on the shore. The city has an extensive harbour, which makes it a fantastic place to walk through to see some beautiful sights as well as a wide range of ships and commercial freighters. Coastlines hosts a lot of fine restaurants and atmospheric bars. One of the most important museums in the region - the Archaeological Museum, is a very interesting and educational place to visit. A magnificent arch 18.5 meters high and 3 meters wide, made from Turkish marble, stands in the heart of the port area and serves as a display of Ancona’s historical involvement with the Roman Empire. Like many cities in Italy, Ancona takes pride in its very own ancient Roman Amphitheatre. Portonovo Bay, a delightful getaway spot with forests stretching down to the golden sand beaches, is only a short drive along the coast.
