Day 1: Arrival in Offagna
Arrival in Offagna in the early afternoon. After taking possession of your rooms, you can dedicate yourself to discovering the village by walking through its narrow streets in the presence of the 15th-century fortress that was built as a bulwark of the defence system of the Maritime Republic of Ancona.
In Offagna there are three museums worth a visit: the Liberation Museum, the Fortress Museum and a special Natural Science Museum dedicated to the scholar Luigi Paolucci and his collection of memorabilia!
Why not end your walk with a visit to an ancient wine cellar in the centre of town and enjoy a glass of Rosso Conero in the shade of the garden?
Let yourself be inspired by our suggestions for enjoying the sunset by the sea of the Conero or for a welcome dinner!
Included: Accommodation and breakfast
Day 2: Ancona
Free morning. We are available to provide you with tips for exploring the surroundings of Ancona. You could, for example, explore the fishermen’s caves at Ancona’s Passetto and take advantage of a swim in the sea at what is known as the Ancona beach!
In the early afternoon, at 14.45, we will meet near Ancona station, a few minutes’ drive from the accommodation facility. Your guide will welcome you and hand you a bicycle helmet and all the instructions for setting off on an electric scooter to discover the city of Ancona and the surrounding countryside!
You will take part in an interesting, exclusive and comprehensive guided tour of the capital of the Marche region, touching on the city’s cultural, naturalistic and gastronomic aspects! You will pass by the port of Ancona, the Mole Vanvitelliana and the Passetto, where you will enjoy a splendid view over the sea.
We will then continue our adventure in the countryside! You will meet two friendly beekeepers, who will introduce you to the fantastic world of bees. Here you will leave your scooter for a short stop and (literally!) put on the beekeeper’s shoes. You will admire and touch the products of the beehive and discover their origin and function. You will receive a jar of Conero organic honey as a gift, and scooter in hand you will continue the adventure.
Back in Ancona, we will stop in the Pincio area, pass under the walls of the Citadel and arrive at the Ghetto. From here we will walk down to the Palazzo degli Anziani and up to the beautiful Cathedral. The experience ends at Cardeto Park with a panoramic aperitif at sunset at one of the most characteristic places in Ancona, right under the old lighthouse.
Included: Guided tour of Ancona by electric scooter with experience in an apiary, jar of organic Conero honey (souvenir of the visit), final aperitif, accommodation and breakfast
Day 3: Ancona castles
After a rich breakfast, you will set off directly from the accommodation on an e-bike. Your MTB guide will accompany you to discover the castles of Ancona! The assisted pedalling will help even the less sporty to enjoy this experience without too much effort.
You will explore this little-known area, but characterised by a rich and interesting history. You will visit four hills that housed as many castles that were part of the defence system of the glorious Maritime Republic of Ancona. Some of these castles still retain their original appearance, while others have been transformed into charming villages.
Along the e-bike route you will have the opportunity to visit the Selva di Gallignano and the botanical garden as well as Castel d’Emilio and its fortress, where you will stop for lunch (a packed lunch with Le Marche products!).
The e-bike tour ends in the early afternoon: you will complete the loop back to the starting point. At this point, the third day of the Conero weekend can continue with relaxation or a stop at the Conero Riviera for a dip in the sea or a visit to the seaside villages of Sirolo and Numana. Free dinner.
