Ancona is placed in the middle of the Adriatic coast of Italy and because of its particular hairpin position with respect to the sea it’s the only city of the Adriatic coast to have sunrises and sunsets on the sea. The name of the city comes from the Greek word “Ankon”, which literally means elbow, with which the first Greek sailors named this piece of land. So a route to discover the city can only start from the harbor.
In Piazza della Repubblica you can find the “Teatro delle Muse”, the heart of the city cultural life, built in 1826 by architect Ghinelli. The high frontage is characterized by 6 ionic columns and a gable with high-reliefs, realized by sculptor De Maria, that represent the Greek’s divinity Apollo with the Muse.
Going to via Gramsci after a few meters discover the charming Piazza del Plebiscito "living room" of the city. The fountain side is fifteenth. On the square facing the church of San Domenico, in which you can admire a Crucifixion by Titian and an Annunciation by Guercino, the Statue of Pope Clement XII, Palazzo Mengoni-Ferretti, the City Museum, Government House (now the Prefecture).
Going by via Pizzecolli at number 17 there is Bosdari Palace seat of the Civic Art Gallery which houses: "Madonna and Child" by Carlo Crivelli, the "Sacred Conversation" by Lorenzo Lotto and "Santa Palazia" by Guercino, one room is dedicated to Francesco Podesti.
Going by via Pizzecolli meets the former church of Jesus amended by Luigi Vanvitelli in 1743, has a curved facade with a high porch. In front you will find the Palace of the Elders (1270). There is very close to the Roman Amphitheatre (the first century. Dc) 93 meters long and 74 wide, it could hold up to 8,000 spectators. Definitely worth a visit is the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in via Ferretti 6, one of the most famous archaeological museums in Italy, rich in finds from excavations revealed exclusively in the Marche.
By via Ferretti to Piazza del Senato, the road, uphill,
leading to the Cathedral of San Ciriaco.
Built on the Guasco hill, almost "suspended" between sky and sea, the
church was built on the remains of a Hellenistic temple dedicated
to Venus Euplea, the Venus of good navigation. Beautiful front porch
that features a Roman-Gothic
supported by four columns, two of
which rest on two lions of red marble from Verona. A large rose window above
the porch and
small lancet windows on the sides. The interior has a Greek cross plan and three naves, the thirteenth-century domed
twelve-sided, slender and turned to the
Gothic, is considered
by experts as one of the most ancient
and perfect domes in Italy.
can walk down to the harbor. Following
the medieval walls will reach the Arch of Trajan, built in 115 AD by Apollodorus
from Damascus, as a sign of gratitude
to the Roman Emperor Trajan, who had financed a fortified quay.
