4. Visit some of the Museums in Ancona Italy
- Museo della Città di Ancona
During the Musem Day in Le Marche, I had the opportunity to visit this interesting museum located on Piazza del Plebiscito. The Musem hosts a collection of archaeological finds, photographic reproductions of buildings, places and historical characters, original prints, paintings, and models. Above all, it represents the most significant moments of the history of the city. All the materials compare the ancient city and the modern city, building a logical structure for the presentation of the urban history of Ancona. Moreover, there’s an augmented reality cardboard tool that allows visitors to go back in time and interact with the past. This new tool is only available in Italian for the moment, but audioguides are available in other languages. You can also book a private guide in English by requesting it ahead of time. But in this case, I suggest you book a guide that can organize you a tour also in other museums of the area, and show you other local attractions. For info: firstname.lastname@example.org
- National Archaeological Museum
Near the Ancona Cathedral, the National Archaeological Museum is one of the most important museums in the region and definitely is an interesting place to visit. It’s located in one of the most important aristocratic palaces of Ancona, the Ferretti Palace.The Museum houses some of the most important artifacts and finds that have been excavated in the Marche region of Italy. Here you can start your journey from the prehistory to Ellenic period, and discover curiosities about the Piceno Civilization, the ancient population that contributed to the Marche region ethnic and cultural entity. Roman coins, prehistoric tombs, and ancient pottery are just some of the objects that can surprises you during this visit.

- Ancona City Picture-Gallery Francesco Podesti (Pinacoteca)
The picture gallery earned the name of a famous painter of Ancona who contributed with uncountable works of remarkable value.
Inside the palace, you can admire magnificent artworks of several historical painters, since the XIV century. Lorenzo Lotto, Carlo Crivelli, Olivuccio di Ciccarello, and Sebastiano del Piombo are just some of the famous names. It will amaze you!

Located in Mole Vanvitelliana, this is one of most singular museums in the territory. Do you know the code word to explore this museum? “It’s forbidden not to touch!” The idea of the Museum is to promote the cultural growth and integration of the visually handicapped: a very important project! But this institution is not only for those who can’t enjoy images. It can also help everyone to discover different and richer ways of perceiving the art and the reality. So, I suggest you trying this experience also with a blind fold: for me it was much more than a multisensorial perception, it made me reflect so much!
