Revision as of 16:26, 24 September 2007
A fishing port town located in the Marche region, it has a well preserved castle called La Rocca. "Take a stroll like an Italian"- at around sunset (when it is cooler) just after, or right before dinner, every Italian heads to "Il Corso" a main street in the town to say hi to all their neighbors, catch up on gossip, and meet friends.
Senigallia is well connected by car, since the Adriatica highway has an exit for the town. Many trains stop at city the train station, though to catch most of the Intercity (and higher) trains serving the Adriatica train line, you will need to catch a local train and take a connection in Ancona, Pesaro, or Rimini.
The universal way of getting around in Senigallia is by bike. You will find all sorts of people of all ages using bikes to move around the small town. Car traffic has increased in the last years, though, as in the whole world, and sometimes even in this bike heaven you begin to feel the need for protected bike lanes. Actually, there is practically only one bike lane, strategically set up along the whole "Lungomare".
Moving by car, though sometimes unavoidable, can be sometimes difficult, especially in Summer, when the city is full of tourists. Parking in particular can be a difficult task. The centre of the town is mostly closed to non-resident car traffic.
There are a few bus lines, but the service is not very frequent.
