When you eventually get to the top the views of the harbour are breathtaking, particularly the views of the ship yard where you can look down on all the various stages of construction. The cathedral is also quite impressive although small by Italian standards!

When you reach the cathedral, not only is this a beautiful place but the views are quite stunning, it is a winding walk up hill but well worth a visit.

After a good climb you can find the cathedral in the old centre of Ancona. It is a nice building and you should definitely check out the panoramic views in front and next to the cathedral. Hope for good weather for the most excellent views!...More

This is one of the region's most important churches of the Medieval Period. Dedicated to the city's patron saint - San Ciriaco - you will find his funerary urn inside the church. Noteworthy are the Greek cross floor plan, the ship hull painted wood ceiling...More
