Maria will be your guide! An expert, passionate and enthusiastic tourist guide who will ride the e-scooter to accompany you through the discovery of the history and secrets of Ancona, ancient Maritime Republic.
Along the way, she will highlight the most interesting aspects of the city, sharing anecdotes and curiosities about the places you pass and the local personalities

In the apiary area you will find Marco, a really passionate beekeeper! With him you will discover all the products of bees!

The tour program:

Are you ready to ride your e-scooter and start the tour?
Only a few minutes to become a good e-scooter driver and… let’s start the tour!
You will learn more about Ancona and its history as a Maritime Republic visiting the Mole Vanvitelliana (a place used in the past for the quarantine of the travelers), Fontana del Calamo and Passetto where you will find a marvelous sea panorama and discover more about the fishermen’s caves history.
Then, you will be ready to follow Maria up the hills to reach the countryside!

In the countryside above the city, Marco is waiting to introduce you to the world of bees. Here, you will temporarily take off your rider’s attire and put on the beekeeper’s outfit. You will see and handle various hive products, discovering their origins and functions. After witnessing the bees’ tireless work, you will receive a jar of honey as a gift, which you can place in the backpack we provided, ready to head back towards the city centre!

We set off again to visit the Cittadella, the city fortress, and pass through the area of Ancona’s old ghetto. You will also visit the Palazzo degli Anziani, the seat of Ancona’s ancient municipality during the time of the free commune and maritime republic, organised like a true city-state!

You will climb the hill to reach the splendid cathedral, built in the Romanesque style around the year 1000. From here, you can enjoy views that open up on one side over the city, the sea, and the coastline, and on the other side, over the bustling shipyards!

The tour is nearly finished, and the only thing left is to reach the final stop: the Cardeto city park.

it's aperitif time

There is nothing best to end the tour than a panoramic drink at the sunset on the hill under the old lighthouse!
After this moment of pleasure, it will be time to go back to the starting point.
