About Ancona

Ancona became one of the major ports of the Adriatic between the thirteenth and fourteenth century, second only to Venice. However, in later years Ancona, like other Italian towns, became the scene of many battles connected to the wars of independence, and was also the target of foreign occupations, including the massive air bombing campaigns during World War II, which destroyed whole areas of Ancona, and badly damaged the port.

    Extremely disappointing
    • Extremely disappointed that Anek changed our booking to Blue Star Ferries on our return trip. It was a much inferior ship, bunk beds instead of a twin room, the tiniest, stuffy cabin and the rudest crew, especially at reception. The food was poor.

    Mini-cruise to Ancona.
    • Good smooth uncomplicated journey on a not full boat. Very clean. Staff attentive. The only addition I would like to see is a small cinema showing films for a small fee.

    Pleasant, but buy food beforehand
    • The restaurants on board are not very good and there are no shops where you can buy any other food than chocolate, so if you want to eat some quality fruit or sandwiches. Buy them beforehand. Otherways, very nice trip on clean boat.
