The Belvedere of Piazza Nuova and Love's bench
From the Piazza del Santuario, continuing along Via Morelli after the fountain, you can see the underground remains of the ancient Roman aqueduct and a little further on, a little hidden on the right, there is also a large ruin of one of the destinations of the Roman circus. At the end of the avenue you reach Piazza Nuova, an oasis of tranquillity surrounded by nature and a splendid panoramic terrace with a view of the beaches of Numana Alta and the profile of Monte Conero plunging into the sea. In spring or on hot summer days, when a regenerating sea breeze blows, it is the ideal place to relax while reading a good book or simply admiring the horizon. It is also one of the most beautiful spots from which to watch an unforgettable sunset.
The Panchina dell'Amore (Love's Bench) is located at the most panoramic point of the Piazza Nuova belvedere, and is a must for a souvenir photo of your holiday on the Conero Riviera. Take your photos and post them with #viviamonumana!
From Piazza Nuova, you can descend along wooden stairs into the woods to reach the "Spiaggiola" and the Frate beach, also known as Sottosanta.
