Where to rent a car in Ancona
Ancona is one of the most popular places to visit in Italy, especially if visitors are heading from mainland Italy to islands in the Adriatic Sea. It’s a good idea to take a look at rental cars at the same time as booking your flights to Ancona. From the airport, choose from: Hertz, Alamo, Maggiore Ancona, Budget, Avis, Europcar and Sixt.
You can also hire a car from Ancona city centre. There are agencies around the central train and bus stations as well as around the harbour.
Driving in Ancona: parking and other tips
When driving in and out of the city, the SS16 coastal road is a really great option if you want to take the scenic route. It’s also toll-free but it can get pretty busy on weekends.
When looking for a fabulous hotel in Ancona, make sure that it has parking facilities available for your rental car. The last thing you want to do is rack up travel expenses at the car park!
Road trips from Ancona: what to do, what to see
Ancona is the capital of the Marche region of Italy which, being right on the coast, means there are gorgeous beaches within easy reach of the city. Passetto is a beautiful place right on the coast with amazing views over the Adriatic. Mount Conero is also great for beaches.
Most visitors will flock to Rome if they’re interested in history but Ascoli Piceno, a small town near Ancona, is actually must older than Rome! This beautiful old town and its medieval towers are too often overlooked by tourists for bigger cities.
