Numana Beach - Mountain trails make this one beach destination you won't want to laze about on. Inside the Mount Conero Park on the Adriatic coast, Numana Beach lies at the base of a high, rugged cliff.
It's silent, peaceful and breezy and surrounded by lush vegetation: no wonder hermits used to come here in the Middle Ages to meditate.
To get here, take highway A14, exit at Ancona -- the area is also connected by plane from Rome and Milan.
