Zadar Guide

The city of Zadar in Croatia lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, in the Dalmatia region of the country, and faces the islands of Ugljan and Pasman which are separated from Zadar by the Zadar Strait. The deep moat that used to separate the old city from the mainland has since been filled in. The city's structure was laid out in Roman times, during the time of Julius Caesar and the Emperor Augustus, who fortified the town with walls, towers and gates. There was a forum, basilica and temple in the west of the town while outside there was an amphitheatre and cemeteries.

Still visible today, and partially preserved, is the aqueduct that was built to supply the town with water and inside the ancient town, a medieval town had developed which prompted the building of churches and monasteries. The Roman Forum is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Zadar and is the largest on the eastern side of the Adriatic. It was built by Augustus, as shown by two stone inscriptions about its completion dating from the 3rd century.

Ferry services from the town's port depart 7 times a week to Ancona in Italy. The crossing time for this service is around 6 hours.

Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years thanks to its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
