Located on the east coast of Italy, Ancona is a charming port city, perfectly suited for holidaying families, and also as a departure/arrival point for ferries travelling to and from Croatia. With great beaches, excellent weather and little traffic, Ancona is the perfect place to stay while you explore this part of Italy in your rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car hire in Ancona is both easy and economical.
If you are arriving into Ancona on a ferry, you can collect your rental car as soon as you arrive. No need to worry about taxis or transfers, simply pick your car and off you go. Alternatively, if you are leaving Italy by ferry, you can drive yourself here as a one-way rental.
Having been an important port city for many centuries, Ancona has a rich history, and many great artefacts have been recovered throughout the area. To learn a little about the city's past, jump in your hire car and head north of the city centre to the National Archaeological Museum of Marche, which is not far from the port. The museum houses great collections of ancient Greek and Roman artefacts and also has many great works of art on display. Not far from the museum you can also visit Ancona Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century.
Those lucky enough to be travelling here with a rental car will be able to visit many great attractions that are spread out across the area. A short drive south of the city you will find Loreto, a small town built high up on a hill. Essentially a commune, Loreto was built around the Basilica of the Holy House, a place of pilgrimage for Italians since the 14th century.
Another great place to visit in the area is the town of Sassoferato, which is to the west of Ancona. Drive your hire car out to the town, which was built near the ruins of Sentinum, an ancient town dating back over 2000 years. The remains of roads and houses can still be seen to this day, giving a truly unique look into the past. While here, be sure to also check out the nearby Frasassi Caves, a huge network of underground caverns discovered only 30 years ago.
