The Town Councils of the Province

Comune di Ancona


Ancona stands on an elbow shaped promontory, protecting the widest natural port of the middle Adriatic sea. The name itself of the town reminds its geographical position: ankon in Greek means 'elbow' and this is the way the Greek people called it and founded the town in 387 b.C. The epithet with which Ancona is known is the Doric town. Ancona is on the top of a cliff, it has a centre rich of history and monuments and well preserved semi-urban parks. The historical districts, climbed on various hills, overlook on the port arch as if they were around a stage. From its port every year about one million travellers leave mainly towards Greece and Croatia; it is in fact the first Adriatic port thanks to the number of embarkations and one of the first for goods and fishing.
