PALOMBINA AND TORRETTE
Le Torrette used to be an old village, overlooking the bay of Ancona, that has been swallowed by urban development and has become part of the outskirts of the city.
It’s named after the towers of a castle built in the 12th century by the Bonarelli family and completed by Count Liberio Bonarelli around 1352. Today the ruins are submerged.
This picturesque village features the “pesche”, wooden houses on stilts, equipped with fishing nets.
Located north of the Conero Riviera, the four-kilometer long Palombina Nuova Beach is a wide sandy beach that gently slopes into the clear water, ideal for families with children.
Part of the beach is public. There are also resorts, bars and restaurants. You can reach the beach by any of the many underpasses and overpasses along the Via Flaminia road. The Northern railway overpass (at km. 197+984 on the Bologna-Lecce line) is equipped with a wheelchair ramp and an elevator.
Reasons to visit:
- Ideal for families
- Wonderful sunsets
- Perfect to walk, swim and eating on the beach
