Rome is, obviously, known for its attractions – the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain, to name a few. But although Italy’s capital is as Metropolitan as they come, don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a city break. If you’ve got your sights set on lying on a wide open beach, we’ve got good news. Rome has it all.
Most of Rome’s fabulous beaches are just a short day trip from the main city, easily reached by public transport. They’re mostly free, often lined with gelato stands, and family-friendly. Most important of all, you can swim at them, and they’re all very beautiful. From Terracina to Sperlonga, here are the best beaches in Rome.
