Numana Alta


Numana is located along the central Adriatic Sea, at the southern slopes of Mount Conero. Its territory is almost completely included in the Conero Regional Park. The historic center in the area is called Numana Alta, as it is at the top of a cliff overlooking the sea; Numana Bassa includes the area below the marina. Numana Alta’s beach features two bays close to the cliff: the Spiaggiola beach and “the Friars’ beach”; the beach of Numana Bassa stretches from the port until the village of Marcelli, boasting numerous beach establishments, campgrounds and holiday clubs. Svarchi, Numana’s inland, is mainly hilly. In the southern part of Numana, which corresponds to the southern borders of the Conero Park, lies the mouth of the river Musone, an important natural wetland. The main tourist attractions are: the arch of a tower on the top of the hill overlooking the harbour; the rest of the bell tower of a church or of a watchtower; a state archeological museum, housing the Piceni’s tombs kits, the Shrine of the Crucifix with a crucifix in cedar wood, a remarkable Byzantine sculpture dating back to the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries; the city hall, a palace built in 1773, once used as a summer residence of the bishops of Ancona, and the Costarella, one of the most typical streets of Numana. Sport lovers have the opportunity to practice a lot of activities: hiking, biking, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, tennis and scuba diving.
