Ancona In Blue

  • Post category:Discover

FEE – the Foundation for Environmental Education – has recently released the list 📋 of Blue Flags 2021. Among them there is also a selection of the best Italian harbours 😎.

Let’s have a look at some of them, starting now with Ancona!

⬇️Ever since the days of the maritime republics, this city has always been in symbiosis with the sea and it is still home to some of Italy’s leading shipyards 🔝 such as CRN, ISA Yachts and Cantiere delle Marche.

The natural harbour is protected by the slopes of Monte Conero⛰, one of the few high spots on the Adriatic coast and it surrounded by a stunning landscape 🤩.

The marina which has been awarded the Blue Flag is called Marina Dorica, a modern set of piers and facilities that provides berths for 1️⃣2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ boats, up to 20m in length.

The docks are equipped with water, electricity and access to travel lifts and to a fuel station.

The water depth ranges from 2.5m to 4.5m.

The city centre 🏙 is less than 3 km away and the Falconara Airport, which guarantees regular connections 🛬 with London 🛫 is only a little further.

Ancona is also the capital of the Marche region. Its wonderful hinterland characterised by rolling hills and ancient villages is waiting to be discovered. In summer every town organises a festival💃, called a ‘sagra’, as an opportunity to taste local gastronomic specialities. After a day at sea, the best way to end the evening 😋
