Preparing your trip to Ancona: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. When packing your luggage, don’t forget to take an Italian phrase book. The majority of local people, sellers, and taxi drivers do not speak English. You can also make your vacation in Ancona more comfortable if you learn the names of the main landmarks of the city. This way it will be a lot more comfortable to navigate.
2. Make sure you check compatibility of all the electrical appliances that you plan to take to your vacation. The electric line voltage is 220V. The majority of hotels do not have such an important everyday gadget as a smoothing iron. It is excluded from the list of electric appliances due to fire safety reasons, but many enterprising tourists prefer to put small smoothing irons to their suitcases.
3. It is better to keep all precious items in a special safe deposit that is available in the majority of guest rooms. Tourists are also not recommended to take many precious items with them when heading to explore the city.
4. It is possible to exchange currency in both special exchange offices and in banks. In addition to the exchange rate, travelers should pay their attention to the commission fees. In some exchange offices, the fee can be quite high – up to 10%. As a rule, the offices near the railway station and the airport offer the least lucrative exchange conditions.
5. The majority of state institutions and shops have lunch hours during which they don’t work. As a rule, the lunch hour starts on 14.00 and lasts until 15.00 or 15.30. During this period, it is recommended to refrain from phone calls. By the way, in the morning, it is allowed to call starting from 7 a.m. Copyright
6. Local restaurants and bars do not really differ in price. Luxury dining venues are the only exception, but they are not that widespread in the city. Budget tourists will easily find charming cafes and coffee houses that offer delicious and inexpensive food. Besides traditional fast-food, many cafes offer salads and fresh pastries.
7. Travelers, who plan to visit Ancona with children, will be pleased with the discount system that is adopted in the city. Children of minority age and students are eligible for discounts on public transport and various excursions.

8. It is better to take a taxi on special taxi stops that are located close to all major landmarks. It is virtually impossible to flag a taxi the usual way. If you need a taxi at your hotel or restaurant, it is better to call to a special service.
