WELCOME TO NUMANA
The Lady of the Conero
Also called "the Cònero Lady", Numana is a pretty town coastal delle Marche - Blue Flag FEE since 2000 - with an ancient history, so much so that its natural harbor was used already more than 2,500 years ago by the Piceni, then by the Greeks and then by Romans. For more information visit the website TurismoNumana.it.
Numana is included in the Regional Park of Conero as it is situated at the southern slopes of the mountain, a rocky outcrop about 600 meters high, which degrades quickly in the Adriatic Sea. Here they are formed bays and coves of very white stones, often accessible only by sea, dominated by pine trees and typical Mediterranean vegetation. The historic center of town (high Numana), where steep, narrow alleys separating the old fishermen's houses, is located on a cliff overlooking the sea, on the border with the village of Sirolo; it also encompasses two natural bays, the beach of the Friars and Spiaggiola. From the marina - moving to the south - starts rather low Numana, whose gravelly beach collects beach resorts of Marcelli and extends to the mouth of the river Musone..
