Scent of the sea, silence nature. In the air the memory of the myth. The country is unique, proud as its inhabitants, its traditions, its customs, firm in the rock and in the heart. Sirolo is an original village, enclosed within the walls of the castle of the Counts Cortesi. Surrounded by ancient walls, the Gothic arch of 1050 gives the visitor the first historic welcome. The plot of the alleys leads him into a medieval climate. Sirolo is a small sunny village on the slopes of the Conero, offering those who arrive images of great landscape authenticity with
unique marine views. The golden color of the houses, the green of the woods, a magnificent undulating countryside with farmhouses, adulcate the landscape. The square with its simple appearance acts as a magnificent balcony offering an unforgettable view of the Conero and its beaches. The two sisters are the symbol of the sea of Sirolo, they feed legends, the white of the seagulls free the fantasy of summer. The Conero rocks create solitary beaches for nature lovers.
Il Vicolo Relais is also the ideal starting point to discover the natural wonders of the Marche region.
Very close to the Vicolo Relais are the beautiful beaches of Sirolo and the Conero Riviera, a unique coastline, a surprising backdrop to a turquoise sea. Just 500 m. away from the Vicolo is the Grotta Urbani, a delightful beach with a gravelly bottom. Not far from the beaches of San Michele and Sassi Neri, within walking distance from the Republic Park or directly from the center of Sirolo with shuttle bus service.
Below Mount Conero, overlooking the sea, there are a series of white pebble beaches, bays, sea caves and pine forests that, very wildly, overlook the Adriatic. A unique coastline, a surprising setting for a clean and swimmable sea. The coastal strip south of Ancona is a stretch of white beaches still unspoiled. The most solitary coves alternate with beaches that are more easily accessible and equipped, up to the Lido di Marcelli, with numerous services and lots of fun.
