  • A pleasant walk from the arch to the lighthouse, the restored area also lends itself to fairs and festivals. Great view and views to the Cathedral

  • Dated 117 a.d., Attributed to the genius of Apollodorus from Damascus. Raised by the Roman Senate to celebrate the new Doric port born from insight of Marcus Ulpius Traianus. A show of art and history in challenge of the time.

  • A stage for both tourists and those living nearby, to rediscover the history of the port of Ancona. It is within walking distance, with a nice, long walk but well worth it! Recently valued also as a venue for events and festivals.

  • The area in front of the Arch of Trajan has remained in a State of semi abandoned for decades. In recent years, very slowly, the comune di Ancona began a restoration that reeeeeally slowly is returning this part of the city to its citizens. There is still much to do but have begun already something.

At the right hand of the statue of Trajan, his wife Plotina; to the left to Ulpia Marciana, his sister
