Port of ANCONA
Ancona is the main passenger port in Italy and about 1.5 million travelers pass through each year. The elbow shaped port has meant that this stretch of sea has been used as a port since antiquity beginning with the Greeks, who founded the city. The Greeks also gave Ancona its name that was inspired by its shape, as Ankon means elbow in Greek. Under the Romans the port was enlarged under the Emperor Trajan, they erected a triumphal arch in the port in his honor. The Saracen raids then destroyed the port, which was rebuilt and fortified during the period when Ancona became a Maritime Republic. At this time Ancona allied with Ragusa to become the second most important Italian port after Venice.
During the discovery of America unfortunately Ancona began to decline being located on the east coast, until Pope Clement XII granted Ancona free port status and financed the construction of a hospital there. During the World Wars the port was heavily bombed and much of it had to be reconstructed during the post-war period. Today Ancona is the most important port in Italy for transporting cars and passengers and the port connects the Peninsula with several different countries in the Mediterranean such as Greece, Croatia and Albania. Being a very large port, several shipping companies choose it as their departure point for their ferries.
