Ancona's city centre is enclosed in city walls dating back to the 19th century, and were the last to be built in the county seat. The perimeter of the Renaissance walls and the three main avenues divide the city centre in four districts: rione S.Pietro, rione di Capodimonte, rione Cardeto and rione Santo Stefano. The borders of all four districts touch in the central square: Piazza Roma.

The San Ciriaco Cathedral was built on the remains of an ancient Hellenistic temple dedicated to Euplea (the Venus protector of safe navigation) and is Ancona's emblem and surely one of the Marche region's most interesting medieval churches.

The pedestrial area of the Ancient port starts from the "Porta S.Primiano".
