Cheap flights to Ancona

Home to some of the country’s greatest wines and the birthplace of Saints, the Marche district of central Italy is a collection of misty green valleys and picture perfect hill towns not to be missed.

Accessible from Ancona airport, the Marche region is the Italian countryside you’ve always dreamed of. Although it doesn’t have the extravagance of Florence or Venice, the cultural cupboard of these small towns is far from bare. Every small town in the region has a castle, church or museum worth a visit but even without those stops, you’d still be compelled to go for the sweeping panoramic views, natural beauty and traditional food.

The sparsely populated area is perfect for the slower paced traveller and is great for those wanting to hike the spectacular Monto Sibillini range. Ancona itself is an earthy but engaging port town that acts as a gateway to the south where you can find the incredible Conero Riveria adorned with white pebble beaches backed by milky cliffs. The town itself was settled by the Greeks around 380BC and has always served as an important destination in the Roman empire as a trade route with other nations across the Adriatic.

These days seaside resorts dot the coastline including Pesaro and the lesser known Fano. Away from the water the best known attraction of Le Marche’s sights is the small town of Loreto, one of Italy’s top pilgrimage sites. The Basilica is believed to provide shelter for what many Catholics claim is Jesus’ childhood house, air freighted to Le Marche by angels.
