Conero riviera

From the beaches of the Conero Riviera to the hills of infinity, from walled cities to wild coves, from cultural itineraries to walks in the protected nature of the Conero Park, so many attractions in a single destination for a holiday of discovery and emotions.

The section of coastline that stretches from the port of Ancona to the port of Numana is called the Conero Riviera, named after the promontory of the same name that plunges down to the sea, full of coves and small beaches made up of rocks and pebbles. The territory is protected by the Conero Regional Park and includes, as well as the seaside resorts of Ancona, Portonovo, Sirolo, and Numana, all with Blue Flag beaches, places of naturalist interest for engaging in sports along with museums and religious complexes.

On the bay, often crowded, there are few restaurants with a breathtaking view balcony serving fish dishes. “Della Vela” beach is a spectacular beach with a rock, shaped like a sail. It’s a free public beach, at the very end of the south versant of the bay. The beach of Mezzavalle adds a touch of wilderness and scenery to the beauties of the bay. Once in Ancona you can’t miss the two most typical and famous dishes: the Ancona stockfish (stoccafisso all’anconetana) and the “brodetto” (fish stew). A glass of Rosso Conero (local red wine) is recommended.
