What a warm welcome!! :) It was summer of 2001 when we took a ferry from Greece and traveled to Ancona on our way to Genoa where we participated in the big demonstration against G8.
But when we reached Ancona hundreds of policemen were there awaiting for us and of course didn’t let us any time for sightseeing… we got on our bus in rush and left for Genoa but some other passengers weren’t lucky and they were forced back inside the ferry and returned in Greece! It was amazing that the Schengen Agreement wasn’t valid for some days! Europe’s bordeless Schengen Area was forgotten and people were holding back for no reason. Of course some days later in Genoa we really felt how nice the Italian carabinieri were but I guess this is not the proper place to talk about police brutality but I have to make some reviews about the warm hospitality of the Italian people that were against the police madness.
On our way back some days later we had the chance to drink a coffee in Ancona, this time there were no policemen around but the problem was we were very tired to check for attractions (no surprise after walking for about 50km the three previous days).
No violent supporters
Should be no problem at all at Ancona, as long as you’ll find the way back to the trainstation… Which could actually be more tough than avoiding hooligans… If Ancona ever go back to the Serie B, the games against Ascoli could be a bit highrisk.
..here in Italy, you may bring...
