Set picturesquely above the Adriatic Sea, Ancona has only recently been discovered by tourists. Although founded in the 4th century B.C., the city still retains several ancient monuments and buildings from its colorful past. The city not only serves as a busy seaport, offering regular ferry service to Croatia and Greece, but it is also widely known for its production of accordions, electric organs and guitars. Stroll through town and discover the pleasures of its spacious squares, churches and historic sights, not to mention white sand beaches that surround it. Or travel through the scenic countryside to beautiful Urbino, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and birthplace of Raphael, and visit the magnificent Palazzo Ducale, designed by renaissance masters.
