My first visit to Ancona was a random student visit. I was travelling with some friends with a rental car. We couldn't find a decent place to stay with our student budgets and were advised to go to Ancona and luckily we went. I don't remember the name of the hostel we stayed at but it was the best hostel I'd stayed at in Italy. We were just passing by, coming from Trieste aiming at Roma so Ancona was not that interesting at the time so we just spent a few hours in the city.
I was back in the city in May 2009 to find a high-school penfriend of mine. We'd been penfriends since late 1990s and never had the chance to meet. We finally did last month and this time my dear friend, Francesca was so kind to show me the beauties of Ancona. I again had just one day but a more efficient one this time.
Maybe it is the port reminded me of the port in my hometown, Izmir, or maybe it is the sunny weather I found after chilly spring days of Ankara, maybe it is the friendship of Francesca but now I know that I want to revisit this city.
