Lovely town with great shopping right off the boat. Wish I could have spent more time there. Embarkation and debarkation were a breeze. Plenty of public transportation


We wanted to see the caves, but there were not enough people signed up so we wnet to Urbino instead. Again, wonderful guide, but she did spend all the time in the museum so we couldn't walk around the city.

We did not see much of Ancona. We took an excursion to Urbino. Urbino is Ok from a historical and cultural point of view, but we found the town dark, dirty and a little depressing, But the countryside on our way there was fantastic!
