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 at its port.

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 terminal. We had a pleasant afternoon walking the streets of Ancona.

Boarding the Marco Polo went smoothly and we were very satisfied with our trip across the Adriatic.

Remember these ferries are NOT cruise ships so don't expect all of the amenities of a cruise ship.

Important Italian Port in East Italy area. Access to Greece and other important European Cities by ferry. Commercial and Military Port. A sight for your eyes. If you want great views visit the Seeport Hotel and bring your camera.

Very old port, which has been used many centuries ago. Deep enough for large vessels, both ferries and cargo ships. It is recommended to go up (using elevator) to the Cathedral, where you can enjoy overview.
