  • The harbour

    Ancona Favorites

    Once the ferry sails out of the harbor, you can discover large warehouses, north-east to the city (first photo). The second and the third photo show the landscape that shows when the ferry tacks south-east. The promontory of Monte Conero is rocky and protects well the bay from southerly winds. The citadel that protected the city spreads on several...

    Ancona Warnings and Dangers

    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...

  • Some like it hot

    Urbino What to Pack

    Although things tend to cool off at night, if you're an American and used to air conditioning, you may find that it is well worth your while to bring a small battery-powered fan with you, or to purchase a slightly larger fan which has the appropriate plug for Italian current. I brought two of the former and we never did get around to buying the...

  • By train to Fano

    Fano Transportation

    Fano is located on the Rimini-Ancona railway. Most regional train and few interregional trains stop there, granting hourly service in every direction. Some northbound services only run until Pesaro where you will have further connections.

  • The church close to the train station

    Fano Favorites

    If you see the signs “chiesa” close to the train station, don’t even think about following them. You will be led closer to the coast and instead of an interesting renaissance or medieval church, you will see this building from the second half of the 20th century. Perhaps, when I become old and wizened it will become interesting – today it’s just a...

  • Finding your way

    Senigallia Transportation

    The best way to explore Senegallia’s old town is on foot, and finding your way here is remarkably easy – indeed, I am not sure that I have ever seen such helpful signing for pedestrians as those we came across here. There are two different types. The first, in my main photo, are those describing the various sights. They are very informative and are...

  • The old town

    Senigallia Favorites

    Although most people probably come to Senigallia for the beaches, for me the old town had much more appeal, and I enjoyed poking around the old fortress, the Rocca Roveresca, wandering the quiet streets and eating in the little gem of a restaurant we discovered there. This part of the city makes a surprising contrast to the “seaside resort”...

    Wool. In Australia we know about wool. For many years there was a saying "Australia rides on the sheep's back". It was worth millions to our economy but, of course, the sheep came from overseas and, co-incidentally, these days the most expensive bales are bought by Italians.The Loggia dei Mercanti pictured here represents the commercial side of the...

    Famous italian compositior Gioachino Rossini is one of Pesaro’s most famous children. His best known work is the opera “The Barbier of Sevilla” with Largo al factotum (Fiiiiiiigaro…) being the most famous aria. His birthhouse at the Via Rossini is now a museum (Casa Rossini).

    Fabriano Favorites

    I cannot praise Fabriano’s tourist office and initiatives high enough!! The receptionist at Hotel Colegio Gentile suggested that I check there for information material and the like and how glad I am that I did. Many tourist offices worldwide can learn from them (the lousy one in “my” Darmstadt included).Lucia, the girl at the tourist office was...

    Fabriano Things to Do

    I had read about this museum on Ingrid’s page and was really keen to visit, which is mainly why I was so pleased when she suggested that our day out from Gubbio might take in Fabriano. It is quite surprising to consider that an invention so widely known and used around the world came out of this fairly unprepossessing town, but so it is – in...

    Porto Recanati Restaurants

    This is definitly not the place I like to go, it looks like those restaurants where you go more to see and to be seen than to eat. I went because I knew the sushi chef and I was sure about his skills. The sushi was infact excellent, he is brazilian and so not everything is japanese style.The carateristic is that sushi can be served on a boat there...

    Sirolo Things to Do

    From here we did ½ day adventures to several hilltop towns, seaside resort towns, and even hiked for 2 hours in a natural reserve park atop Monte Conero. We were up so high that the clouds blocked the view of the sea below. But the trail, we discovered after the walk, is intermediate hiking with rocky paths, steep inclines/declines and the need for...

    Sirolo Things to Do

    Sirolo is such a charming medieval town on the Adriatic Riviera. Really, it's actually high above the Riviera. It was such a panoramic location and so clean, near pristine.We found that the best views of the sea and cliffs was from the main square in the medieval center, which is actually a "veranda overlooking this fabulous location".Of special...

It's surrounded by beautiful buildings, such as the Loggia dei Mercanti (1505) and the Palazzo dei Priori (17th century), nowadays the town hall.There are two cafés on the square, but when we visited the square was empty and even served as a parking lot in the evening.

    Another beautiful Romanesque church in the Chienti valley, Santa Maria a piè di Chienti was founded by Charlemagne, according to legend. Actually the present church is a bit younger, from 1125. The building is made entirely of brick and is quite bare both from the outside and from the inside.The interior has a special charm of its own though, with...

It took seven years to correct that damage. So, in April of 2004, mass was celebrated after a seven year absence.The biggest problem for the church was the fact that the brick...
