GO BEYOND WHAT MEETS THE EYE TO DISCOVER ANCONA’S VIBRANT STORY

Rising above the waters of the Adriatic Sea is Ancona, a city steeped in over 2,400 years of history. From the Cathedral standing high above the old town on Gusaco Hill to its beautiful ancient arches, Ancona is a city waiting for its secrets to be discovered. Uncover the past with Azamara®’s immersive Italy cruises.

Fascinated by human history? Visit the Marche National Archaeological Museum and journey through the Copper Age, the Bronze Age, and beyond. Marvel at ancient Greek ceramics, Roman ruins, relics of the Picenian civilization, preserved Federico Zuccari frescoes, and a wealth of artifacts—all within the beautiful Palazzo Feretti Palace on the slopes of Gusaco Hill. Elsewhere, the marble Arco di Traiano towers high above the harbor in tribute to Emperor Trajan, who funded the expansion of Ancona. Unveiled in 115 AD, the arch stands 18.5 meters high and served as a beacon for ships approaching Rome’s impressive Adriatic port.

While walking the stone streets of Old Town, make a stop at Piazza del Plebiscito. Known as Piazza del Papa by locals, this charming square is the perfect spot to relax with an al fresco drink. Worked up an appetite from all that walking? Visit Corso Garibaldi for your pick of classic Italian delights, including stoccafisso all'anconetana—a seafood dish that put Ancona on the culinary map.
