|Subject: Venice to Ancona|
Sorry but the ferries departing from Venice to the Mediterranean don't stop
at Ancona, nor there's any coastal boat service in that area. If you're
going by road you can skip Bologna by taking the SS Romea from Venice to
Ravenna, very interesting as it is the old road of pilgrims going to Rome
but with heavy traffic, and then join the SS Adriatica which runs all the
way south to Ancona and further.
P.S. SS means Strada Statale, i.e. State Road.
Have a nice planning.
