The journey to Ancona station takes about 20 minutes. Many trains now have low level access, although the Ancona platform currently has step-only access at present. The train fare to Ancona is far cheaper than the bus, being €1,90 (bus is €5.50 return). For a very scenic route to Ancona, you can buy a ticket to Fabriano in the Appenines, and then get a direct train to Ancona via Macerata. This branch line is very scenic and you will pass vineyards and historic villages and towns. Picture below: Roman ampitheatre in Ancona
Ancona airport/Aeroporto delle Marche is a relatively small but perfectly accessible airport. There are direct flights to the UK and Europe, as well as internal flights. While many travellers will hire a car from the various agencies at the airport, some will want to travel by public transport.
There is a shuttle bus service from the airport to Ancona railway station. It runs on most days of the year and takes about 30 minutes, depending on traffic. A far better alternative is to catch a train from Castelferreti railway station, which is only your metres from the arrivals hall (the entrance is to youn left as you exit). Castelferreti station is unmanned but there is a ticket machine on the platform for trains to Jesi, Fabriano, Foligno and Rome; you will need to use the underpass. However, the ticket machine does not accept cash, and only credit and debit cards. You can buy tickets to anywhere on the Italian railway network from here.
If you are travelling to Ancona, Falconara, Bologna or points south, you wait on the platform nearest the airport terminal (opposite the ticket machine and station building). Don't forget to validate your ticket using the yellow machines situated on the platform. Not every train stops at Castelferreti; therefore, it is sometimes necessary to travel in the wrong direction and then change platforms.
