The beach of Numana Alta

At the southern foot of Monte Conero lies the beach of Numana, one of the two bays formed under the cliff and overlooked by the historical town centre, known as Numana Alta. Prior to the eighth century BC, Greek merchants came to this Picene harbour and shortly afterwards Numana was occupied by the Greeks who controlled Ancona; later it became an important Roman town.
