Silversea Luxury Cruises À ANCONA

Set picturesquely on the Adriatic Coast, at the foot of Monte Conero, Ancona has still to be discovered by global tourism. Ergo, this busy Italian port is an authentic gem with a glorious jumble of history preceding it; founded by the Greeks in 387 BC, Julius Caesar seized it immediately after crossing the Rubicon before it eventually went on to become part of the Byzantine empire between the 3rd and 5th centuries. Glorious remnants of these eras are everywhere to be seen. View more

At the north end of the port, look out for the Roman triumphal arch, Arco di Traiano, while in town, among the many lovely buildings, look for the domed Cattedrale di San Ciriaco in the Piazzale del Duomo, built Byzantine-Romanesque style evocative of the 12th century. With so much in store, unsurprisingly, the city’s archaeological museum (housed in the 16th century Palazzo Ferretti) is considered one of the best in the country. What the city might lack in big-city infrastructure, is more than made up for in landscape. The beaches of Monte Conero are some of the country’s finest. Set at the foot of the 572 metre mountain of the same name, Mount Conero offers hikers a chance to gain some altitude on one of the many hiking paths that weave throughout the ecologically protected regional park. Five blue flag beaches offer marvellous opportunities for swimming and snorkelling (or just having a coffee in the shade), with attractions ranging from pebble beaches with pedestrian access only to resort-style offerings.
