Set in the middle of a desolate area, surrounded by railway goods yards and commercial freight shipping the ferry port is designed for freight, not passengers with cars. Checkin is chaotic, loud, very disorganised. You wouldn't want to eat in any of the catering outlets...More

One of the most unorganized ports I have ever visited. The check-in area is situated away from the train station. A taxi driver asked 25 euros to take us to the check -in area and then to the port! The buses did not have air-condition...More

Great to lookout over the harbour and watch the Adriatic ferries coming and going. Interesting too is the bustle and progress on the Viking Cruise Boats being built in the adjacent shipyard.

Love the nature there and the hills as well. I was leaving to Greece on the boat. Nice people and everything was easy.

If you like working ports you'll love Ancona. And you can walk right out past roman walls and arches while you watch the ferries and cargo ships set off for Greece and Turkey.

I have never seen a port that juts out into the Adriatic like Ancona's, as if challenging the sea. It resembles an elbow a feature that the Greeks used for its name , but its strategic position certainly didn't fall short of importance for the...More

Driving towards the port,you cannot but appreciate the immensity of the Barducci Landslide,where the land slipped towards the sea with ruinous consequences. That aside,what takes your breath away is the cathedral of St. Ciriaco,up on Guasco hill. It is an unforgettable view. The presence of...More
