How can you make your summer stay in Rome even more comfortable and appealing?
Maybe tasting delicious Italian gelato and spending a romantic evening at an outdoor terrace of a restaurant after a daily journey to the beach? Why not ? This could be the best way to complete the pleasure of visiting the Eternal City
There are plenty of great beaches easy reachable from the Capital. Here you have a few:
Anzio is 50 miles south of Rome. It has long sandy beach along the entire length of the town, backed by the imposing ruins of the Emperor Nero’s seaside villa. From Rome, you can take the train from Roma Termini towards Nettuno, Anzio is the second last stop, and the journey takes approximately one hour.
A little further south lies Sperlonga. The waters are warm and crystal-clear. This is one of the most beautiful beaches near Rome
How to get there: Hop on a regional train from Roma Termini heading towards Naples and get off at the station Fondi-Sperlonga, about an hour and 15 minutes from Rome (not all trains stop here so make sure yours does in advance!). From there a short shuttle bus ride will take you to the town and beaches. Get your bus ticket in the train station’s bar.
4) Santa Severa
This beach is on the north side of Rome at 50 kilometres from the city and is overlooked by an imposing castle! The water is good, if not quite as crystalline as in southern Lazio.
How to get there: Take a regional train from Roma Termini heading to Civitavecchia and get off at Santa Severa, about an hour from Rome. From the station you’ll have to walk about 10 minutes to get to the beach.
5) Santa Marinella
One stop further north from Santa Severa comes the town of Santa Marinella. Here the water is usually calm and surprisingly warm and is ideal for families.
How to get there: Take a regional train from Roma Termini heading to Civitavecchia and get off at Santa Marinella, about an hour from Rome.
Ostia is the beach of Rome. The water quality is not so good but there is always a fun atmosphere due to the high number of bars and restaurants, and if you want to see Romans behaving on the seaside this is the place to go.
How to get there: Take the metro B (blue) line to Piramide. From here change onto the commuter train to Ostia from adjoining Ostiense station. All you have to do from the metro is change platforms – just follow the signs. The train ride to Ostia is also covered by day or week passes on Rome’s transport system, so if you have one of these you won’t need another ticket.
