We like walking and so parked at the turn off to Portonovo and walked down, not a good idea, a busy road. There are several pay car parks down by the beach but I think the place must get hectic in summer and at the...More

I love Portonovo and the beaches are stunning hidden gems not as discovered as other places in Italy.

Beautiful beach in a natural and historic place. It's difficult to park near the beach so I suggest to use a bus or a scooter.

A wonderful gem: the view of the mountain that kisses the see is just awesome. A tip: go there very early in the morning if you don't wish to pay a fortune for parking your car. Very crowded in August.

Taxis are readily available at the port and you should be able to negotiate a fare if you are six people. We used a rental car so didn’t have occasion to hire a cab. Consequently, not familiar with fares. Enjoy Ancona... More

If you like beaches you could stay one week or longer changing beach every day. There are also very good restaurants where you can eat both fish and meat and a lot of local specialities and excellet Italian wines.

Yes you can take a taxi: it takes 20 minutes by car (12Km) more or less. Be aware it's not cheap by taxi but very comfortable because it's difficult to find a park near the beach.
