It is always good to see the history of a city - and this arch demonstrates its importance to the Roman Empire! (PS - the guns are from WW1)

I liked this arch and I saw it during my first trip to Ancona. The location is nice and it catches your attention and it is a nice piece of architecture..no wonder, we're in Italy. I recommend it to all visitors in Ancona.

The walk along the old walls is interesting and the view of the town and Cathedral is really good. The Arch of Trajan is in very good contìdition and should not be missed. If you are in the harbour it is just a short walk.

If you come into Ancona by ferry in the early morning, stay for a few hours and get the feel of this surprisingly interesting city. We found free parking just to the left in a small lot after getting off the ferry. There were plenty...More

This Roman arch is very impressive although slightly at odds with its surroundings on the edge of the modern ferry port - however I felt in a way it added to its charm! I thought it was wonderful to be able to walk under such...More
