Where the sea meets the mountains …

… lies Conero, the gateway to paradise!

The Riviera del Conero is a place where free spirits feel right at home: one of the most majestic headlands of the Adriatic Coast stretches into the sea as if it wants to lose itself in its azure waters, the Mediterranean scrub prospers in its authentic, wild state, while the paths hug the natural contours of the land without disturbing their beauty. And we just can’t wait to welcome you to this peaceful haven. Walking along the numerous paths in Conero Regional Park, you will see rays of sunlight filtering through the branches of pine and juniper, and the sparkling blue of the sea emerging from between the lush green of the vegetation. It’s time to embark on a new adventure!
