Walking Ancona’s shopping street, Corso Garibaldi, or driving on Corso Stamira or Via XXIX Settembre, we come to Piazza della Repubblica, facing the sea. Here we find the main entrance to the port area, right in the beating heart of the city.
A short walk to the north takes us to the centre of the old port.
The area can also be reached via the Portella di Santa Maria or Portella della Dogana, located at the end of Via della Loggia, opposite the beautiful Romanesque church of Santa Maria della Piazza.
A third entrance crosses the archeological area of the Trajan port.
