We spent 8 hours in Ancona whilst waiting to take a ferry to Igomenitsa. Lovely little town with lots of historic buildings and small cafes. A nice place to visit if you want some down time.

The coloured hues of the various brickwork lend an interesting feel to this area. It has a quiet calm to it in the early morning when few people are around. In the evening the bars/restaurants are busy (wouldn't necessarily recommend the food here). You can...More

There are so many great buildings and style about Ancona we are team of 4 found it a very refreshing time and place to visit. I am sure at some stage we will not just visit Ancona but the surrounding countryside.

Ancona is very disappointing. This square is described as one of the key places to visit. It's really not that attractive and the cafes etc are all fairly dull and expensive. My advice is don't waste your time. Italy has so much more to offer...More

While rightly Ancona is not on everyone's tourist itinerary and much of it is pretty grim. The square and surrounding streets are lovely filled with bars & restaurants and some fine old palazzo and is definitely worth a few hours of your time.

Nice place to visit, really nice architecture, near to the port. It would be lovely visit this place during aperitivo time, around 19h, so you can enjoy the glass of vine or cocktail, the food and the view.

Beautiful area surrounded by nice restaurants, shops and historical landmarks. Very close to the port and the tourism office. Authentic Italian Ambiance.

It doesn't matter which restaurant you choose they all are very good. Its a wonderful light atmosphere to dine in and just for people watching.

This piazza is like many you'll find around Italy. It's worth a look if you haven't seen many before, however, I can't remember anything overly striking about this one. It was nice, but nothing special.

This is one of the coziest places in Ancona! While climbing up a tiny narrow street you suddenly enter the little Piazza and get surrounded by history. We had dinner there and it felt amazing, the atmosphere is one of a kind!
