On the hottest day ever in Italy we decided to climb this wonderful park. Maybe not the best idea but we actually do not regret it. The scenery is breath-taking and we could find enough shade to protect us from the glaring sun. There seems...More

A lovely park that crosses the town from one side to the other. It is more like a forest in certain parts. Breathtaking view of the sea.

From memory there are four entrances/exits to this park but do find at least one so you can enjoy some superb views. It also contains some historic buildings which are described on boards, a historic lighthouse and a military section.

Undervisited park along the seafront in Ancona. Some interesting sites such as old lighthouse and Jewish cemetery. A bit shabby, however, and poorly maintained, like many public attractions in Italy.
