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.

It has just happened that we were in the port of Ancona on the weekend when most people started their summer vacations.
On a very hot day, too many travelers , due to unprecedented traffic jam were waiting in the embarkation room to get their tickets validated, so nobody had the necessary patience to even think of visiting some close by sightseeings.
If there were not some extraordinary friendly and willing to service employees the situation could easily get out of order.
To conclude, I would rather advise travelers to avoid traveling during weekends on July and August from this port if possible.

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.
