The Conero Riviera is a coastline stretching along the Northern Adriatic coast, just below Ancona. It is made up of a series of colorful villages with stunning beaches and rural, inland landscapes of rare beauty. The whole area was declared a regional nature park in 1987 and majestic Mount Conero, which rises directly from the sea with a limestone peak reaching 1,877 feet, is the guardian of the rich flora and fauna that surrounds it. Your private guide will pick you up at your cruise terminal in Ancona and accompany you for a half-day excursion to discover the lovely villages of Portonovo and Sirolo.
The fishing village of Portonovo is the first stop on this tour. It is the smallest retreat on the Conero Riviera, boasting a wonderful and pristine bay where you will have the chance to take fabulous pictures. Following your photo session, you will take a pleasant drive to Sirolo, the pearl of the Conero Riviera.
Set like a jewel between the green woods of the Conero Park and the blue waters of the Adriatic, the elegant, medieval village of Sirolo is a real feast for the eyes. The square located in the town center is a balcony overlooking the sea from which you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the little towns and magnificent beaches along the Riviera. On very clear days, it is even possible to see the Kornati Islands and Croatia.
After a guided tour of Sirolo, you will have some free time to enjoy a drink at a local bar or to do some shopping before being driven back to the cruise dock with plenty of time before your ship's departure.
