Among the blue sea and the intense green of the Mediterranean marquis, among jutting cliffs, hidden bays and old villages full of history; and along the coast of the Marches that runs from Portonovo to Numana lies the Conero Riviera. Numana, Sirolo and Portonovo, attractive vacation spots at the foot of the Conero mountains, have a wide selection of hotels and are ideal starting points for nature excursions in the Conero park and to the fantastic caves of Frasassi.
The Conero Riviera is one of the most beautiful seashore area of the entire Adriatic coast, with its changing landscapes where white and sandy sheltered beaches are abruptly interrupted by steep rocky cliffs diving into the sea and sometimes can be reached only by boats or along small paths. A scenic road unwinds through all this area, often losing itself deeply into thick woods of pine, oak and bay oak trees. But the crown jewel of the coast is certanly the Portonovo Bay, an uncontaminated wonder of nature. Among the many beaches ornating the cliff of the Conero is the "Two Sister Beach", walled in bay steep rock cliffs, it is surely one of the most outstanding spots of the Adriatic, two grand rock spurs arising from the sea, which here take on unusual delicate chromatic hues.
The Conero Riviera, approximately 13 km south of Ancona, can be reached by autostrada A14 - exit Ancona South or Loreto-Porto Recanati - and from the airport or train station in Ancona.
