Ancona in one day on foot or by bike
If you are here… you’re planning to explore Ancona in one day, whether on foot, by bike or motorbike.
The starting point is charming Portella Santa Maria, a gateway to the heart of the old town.
From here, go for a walk or a ride in the historic center of Ancona, through splendid Piazza San Francesco, named after the beautiful church, up to the Palazzo degli Anziani.
If you are on foot, walking down the Vanvitelli promenade, take Vicolo della Serpe, an alley that will lead you through a small door directly to Piazza San Francesco: you’ll feel like a visitor in the Middle Ages!
Walk through the old port of Ancona, a city rich in history and full of life, where the sunsets will amaze you.
Continue to the Lanterna Rossa (Red Lighthouse), one of the symbols of Ancona, and an ideal place for iconic selfie moments.
