The Cattedrale di San Ciriaco sits on top of the hill overlooking the port of Ancona. If you have walking difficulties then a taxi from the town centre to the Church is your answer as the walk up is fairly steep. It is well worth a visit. The view from the top is spectacular. The interior of the Church is... More

On entering Ancona on a cruise ship one of the most spectacular sights is the Cattedrale di San Ciriaco as it stands on the top of the hill overlooking the port and the city. At sunrise the view is spectacular. We didn't make it to the church itself but it certainly was a great sight to see it stand proud... More

This is a very old church, built almost 1000 years ago(I could be wrong on that fact). I went here with a local who knew the history, which was what made the church so amazing. Without knowing the history the church wouldn't of been all that amazing, but knowing the history made the chruch amazing. Also plan to spend some... More

This Romanesque Cathedral is really worth a visit. It is on a steep hill, the Colle Guasco. Number 11 bus runs but it is a nice walk overlooking the harbour.

Whilst walking around the port you will come across The Cathedral of San Ciriaco. If you have time it is worth a look, even if you have seen dozens else where. You can tell that it has been subject to face lifts & remodeling over the century's from Roman to Gothic facade. The outside is far more impressive that inside.... More

I recommend the Blue Guide for this and other sights in the Marche. Number 11 mini bus can take you up or down, but walk at least one way to see the palazzos (some are museums,) and medieval churches and piazzas.

Very beautifully maintained Romanesque church. You can see remains of a paleochristian church through glass panels in the floor.

Beautiful sunsets and magnificent views on the sea are only two of the things that make this place so awesome! Plus, the cathedral is in roman style but it also has... More
