Its history dates back to 2500 years ago, when the first Greek colonists settled in this part of Italy, attracted by the beauty of the area and the presence of safe harbors.The history Numana Alta is contained in the old town, where a dense network of narrow streets embraces the colorful houses of the fishermen and then opens up into a large belvedere overlooking the sea. It is a terrace with a unique view that sweeps across the coast of the Riviera del Conero. From the center you can go down to the port through the ancient terrace, the Costarella. Here begins the bottom of Numana, the most modern and lively part of the city, full of bars and baths.
