Ancona?s port has a long tradition. It was founded by the romans in the second century BC and became a gate to other adriatic cities. The port has kep this role until today so that still a number of freighters and passenger ferries are seen in the port of Ancona. Their main destinations remain Croatia, Albania and Greece. While I was in the old town, I watched a ferry (the one to the right of the Jadrolinija ship) backing into its parking space. It looked like ballet, just with a very heavy ballerina.

Directions: Between main train station and old town
