Ancona is located east of the foothills of the Apennine mountains which are the tallest range in central Italy. The shoreline south of Ancona is characterized by relatively deep, clear, and quite cold water bordered by rocky beaches below the Conero bluffs to the west. The location of Ancona has made it a centre of maritime transportation and commerce between Italy, Croatia, and Greece. As such, Ancona is the key ferry port in central Italy with daily connections to a variety of destinations across the Adriatic Sea.
Ancona is easy to get to from north or south. Simply follow the autostrada into Ancona.
To arrive at the port of Ancona, use the exit marked Ancona Centro. To arrive at the Conero beaches, look for the exit which notes Monte Conero. Regular buses run along the seafront from the train station to the port.
