Ancona Guide

Located in the Marche region of Italy, the city of Ancona is located around 280 km to the north east of Rome and is situated on the Adriatic Sea coast between the slopes of two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno and Monte Guasco. The city's port is popular with passenger traffic and is one of the main ports on the Adriatic Sea. There are many things to see and do in the city. The city's cathedral, Ancona Cathedral, is dedicated to Judas Cyriacus and was consecrated dating the 11th century and completed in 1189. The cathedral is characterised by its dodecagonal dome over the centre, which was altered by Margaritone d'Arezzo in 1270. The cathedral's exterior has a Gothic portal which is ascribed to Giorgio da Como (1228).

The city's port is popular for passengers travelling to countries surrounding the Adriatic Basin including Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Albania and Montenegro.

Patras Guide

The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of the Greek capital, Athens, and is the regional capital of Western Greece in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should head to Aghiou Nikolaou which is the city's most famous street and is only a short distance to the Old City. This is characterised by cobbled streets lined with lovely neoclassical mansions which act as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. A popular site in the city is its medieval castle that was constructed in the latter part of the 6th century AD on the site of the ancient Acropolis. The castle's walls enclose an area of around 22 sq. m and the castle consists of a triangular external compound that was reinforced with towers and ramparts.

There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where the Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
