The tour links the old port with Passetto beach and gives a historical overview on Ancona across the centuries, from its doric origins to the present day.
By pedaling between alleys and monuments we will admire the most important sights. We will start from the port, which represent the access to the town from the sea and preserve invaluable testimonies of the Roman Empire still now.
Bumping into the neoclassic Muse Theatre, we will go through Corso Garibaldi, the central commercial spine of the city in the Nineteenth Century, and then we will reach Cavour Square, the junction between ancient and modern Ancona. We will cover Viale della Vittoria until the War Memorial, which overlooks Passetto cliffs. Passetto is nestled in Conero Reserve, from which we will enjoy a broad sea view./span>
After a hearty beakfast, we will get back on track toward the upper town. We will visit Cardeto Park that guards historical places, typical flora and fauna and a breath-taking overhang on the sea.
We will go on to the emblematic San Ciriaco Cathedral, on Guasco hill, which dominates the city and keeps its oldest secrets.
We will descend to Plebiscito Square, located in the hearth of old Ancona and witness of its most important past and present events.
According to tradition, we will drink the water pouring from the folkloristic Calamo fountain, also called “of the thirteen faucets”, with a propitiatory purpose. Finally, we will end the tour with a well-earned aperitif based on local produce.
