We made our way to the highest point so that we could take in all the comings and goings from a high vantage point and we weren’t disappointed. Seeing the ferries manoeuvring and a very large active ship yard was fascinating.

I like to visit this huge place sometimes just to see the sunset over the sea/boats all around. Nice place to visit, full of graffiti and history. Very recommended!

The port is great to take some pictures; the organization for the loading of the ferry requires optimization

We were very disappointed in Ancona - but perhaps a positive is that, when arriving by Cruise Ship, it is only a short walk into the Town. Saw signs for the Tourist Information Office, but never found it. A disappointing last stop on our cruise.

Somewhat disjointed and messy port area. Wouldn't be pleasant on a bad day. Needs refurbishment and upgrading and better ordering. We travelled from here to Split. Things were better organised and better looking at the Split end. But, I suppose Ancona isn't looking for tourists...More

We arrived in Anconca on a train from Milan. From there we took a free bus (#12) to the Port Facility, where we checked in and got our boarding for Jadrolinija Ferry (Marco Polo) to Split. The shuttle bus then took us down to Ferry...More
