The walk along the old walls is interesting and the view of the town and Cathedral is really good. The Arch of Trajan is in very good contìdition and should not be missed. If you are in the harbour it is just a short walk.

As a very big fan of the best of all roman emperors, I was very enthusiastic about the chance to visit an arc erected in his honour. The Arc didn'nt disappoint me! It is in a very good condition, the reliefs and the structure are very recognisable and impressive. Beside the arc itself, you can walk along the new and... More

Lovely view of the sea at sunset. There are a few places where you can eat and have a drink. Walking along the walls is rathere pleasant.

If you come into Ancona by ferry in the early morning, stay for a few hours and get the feel of this surprisingly interesting city. We found free parking just to the left in a small lot after getting off the ferry. There were plenty of spaces, but they filled up as the day went on. From there you can... More

This Roman arch is very impressive although slightly at odds with its surroundings on the edge of the modern ferry port - however I felt in a way it added to its charm! I thought it was wonderful to be able to walk under such an impressive monument that is almost 2000 years old (but then I am a history... More

Amazed by its age and appearance. We were up by the cathedral looking down at the port so didn't get very close but read up on it in the map guide

Whilst in the sea port of Ancona you need to walk down to the end of the ferry port to find the The Arch of Trajan (115BC), It is a grand structure over looking the ocean. You could imagine the honor of being one of the triumphant solders returning & walking through the gate after a victory. Parts of the... More

It's right in the midst of the busy modern port, and there's nothing to see by the arch.

The Arch of Trajan is almost 6 stories high and was erected in the first century as an entrance to the causeway atop the harbor wall in honor of the emperor who had made improvements to the harbor. This is considered one of the finest Roman monuments in Le Marche. The arch stands on a high podium with wide flights... More
