Ancona wheelchair accessible tours is just out from Monte Conero, diving into a port with blue waters, a crossroads for trade in the Adriatic.
A thousand year history that makes the capital of the Marche region a city rich in monuments and traditions.
Ancona is dressed in the splendor of a past that sees it as a protagonist, and a present that places it as a favorite destination for travel and holidays in the Conero Riviera, with its relaxing beaches and a clear sea in which to dive.
Historiographic tradition tells that the Syracusan Dorians erected a temple dedicated to Aphrodite.
The city was a Greek colony with the name of Ankón and the scene 58 of the Trajan’s Column in Rome is also evidence of this.
The Arch represents an important testimony of Roman architecture, moreover in an excellent state of conservation.
Overlooking the sea, the Arch of Trajan links its history to the harbor that hosts it.

Let’s start from the symbol of the city, the Cathedral of San Ciriaco, the main church of Ancona which owes its name to Ciriaco, a holy bishop of Armenian origin.
It is a medieval church where the Romanesque style blends with the Byzantine one.
Still inside the port of Ancona, it is impossible not to be captured by a pentagonal-shaped building that laps the sea in the opposite position to the Arch of Trajan.
It is the Mole Vanvitelliana or Lazzaretto of Ancona, a complex built in 1733 on a artificial island by Luigi Vanvitelli.
Thirteen masks of fauns and satyrs make the water of what is one of the most famous fountains in Ancona gush out, the Fountain of Calamo or Fountain of the 13 Cannelle.
Rebuilt in Renaissance-Mannerist style based on a design by the architect Pellegrino Tibaldi between 1559 and 1560.
A fountain already stood in the Greek era and then incorporated into the city walls during the Middle Ages, it represents a fixed stop for tourists visiting Ancona.
Piazza del Plebiscito is the oldest square in Ancona.
Arranged on two levels, the square has a highly scenographic layout, underlined by the presence, in the center, of the statue of Clement XII.
The same Pope who granted the city the free port by expanding and modernizing it.
The Archaeological Museum, is located in Ferretti Palace.
From prehistory to the Picene, Gallic and Roman civilizations.
Between Colle Guasco and Colle Cappuccini, you will discover the existence of the Roman Amphitheater dating back to the 1st century BC.
How not to mention the Ascoli Olives!!!
Fried street food symbol of the entire region, to be alternated, according to tradition, with fried Cremini, sweets made with custard which, it is thought, are ideal for cleaning the palate between an olive and the other one.
Then the Stroncatelli, pasta born in the Jewish communities that have strongly influenced the local gastronomic culture, the Brodetto all’Anconitana, the Paccasassi and the donut with raisins.
