Monte Conero

Le Marche

Monte Conero is a towering mountain on the Adriatic Coast that guards the eastern coast of Italy. Just south of the town of Ancona, Conero creates an ideal setting for the most beautiful beaches in Le Marche, known as the Conero Riviera. With popular beaches come many restaurants and hotels…

The most populated beach resorts are in the towns of Portonovo, Sirolo, and Numana. Sirolo and Numana offer small beaches– essentially coves– some reachable only by boat. Sirolo boasts the Conero Golf Club, one of the finest courses in Le Marche, and some of the most beautiful beaches on the Conero peninsula. The town of Portonovo boasts many restaurants and shops including, of course, many seafood restaurants with views of the sea. Don’t leave without trying the “mosciolo di Portonovo,” or the Portonovo Mussels as well as the region’s much-touted wine, Rosso Conero. Both can be found at the restaurant Giacchetti. For a more intimate experience characteristic of Sirolo, try La Torre.

In addition to the resort-centric attractions, Monte Conero can be an attraction in and of itself. Go hiking on the mountain in Conero National Park and discover some of the most breathtaking views Italy’s coast has to offer. Or take a boat out on the Adriatic Sea for a panoramic views of Monte Conero and its surrounding landscape.
