Beach next to Fiumicino airport

by orix

I'm traveling to Rome in August. After visiting too many cathedral i might want to relax a bit.
Is there any nice (quiet?) beach not too far from rome?

Thanks!

Re: Beach next to Fiumicino airport

by milliturtle

We just visited a beach near Castel Porziano that's pretty close to the airport. We went on a Monday and it was not too busy, but I'm not sure if it'll be quiet in August or on weekends. It is supposed to be nicer than Ostia Lido.

From Rome, take the metro to the Pyramid station, then transfer to the Roma-Lido train line (it's covered by the transport pass). Get off at the last stop (C. Colombo) and then take bus 07 to the stop called Litoranea Cancello #2. You'll be dropped off at a beach called "Free Beach". There are a few buses at the train station marked as "Mare", and I think you can probably get to a beach by taking any of those buses. Our travel time there was less than 1 hour and a bit more on the way back (we missed the bus). Hope this helps.

I did hear that the beaches further away from Rome are nicer, but Free Beach was good enough for relaxing for a few hours. If you want to see some pictures, you can check out my tip on Castel Porziano.

Travel Tips for Rome

The Colluseum

by AmericanBoy

I suggest a walk around the colusseum at night. It is beautiful to see it lit up!!

And if you are interested, there is a bar crawl that meets in the park above the Colluseum metro stop almost every night. You'll hear them before you see them. All are welcome to join.

The Italian way of life,...

by bpaskin

The Italian way of life, especially in Rome and south, is slower than the North America and most of Western Europe. The culture is friendly and Italians will make you feel at home. However, their life is based on family, so if you are not God, Family, or Friend, then you are other. And they may take advantage of that fact, unless you curse at them or make a big stink. This usually does not happen in tourist places, but it can happen in taxis, shops, or anywhere else. Most of Western Europe or North America there is a little trust between people, whether it is in a shop or somewhere else. However, Italians do not trust each other, let alone a tourist. It takes a long time for the trust to build up.

On the Street

by Rhondaj about Women's Clothing

Seek and ye' shall find. Cities that are touted as expensive can be cheap if you are. These street markets are all over Rome. Okay, not on Via Condotti... You name it: clothes, household items, foods, etc. a few euros

Porta Maggiore

by Tunda_F

one of the most traffic point of the south-east of the city is Porta Maggiore.Trams 14,5,19 pass from here together with all the rest of the traffic beasts of Rome,motos,cars,trucks,vans,cats,trains,airplains....and anything else exept bicycles...well sometimes there is some brave on bicycle,but it is not the most advisale way-to-go in Rome....

eating on the streets

by tompt about snack cars

Near the major tourist attractions you will find this small snack cars. They sell drinks and a small bite to eat, sandwiches, a slice of pizza and so on.

Prices are high. Expect to pay 16 Euro for two softdrinks (0.5 liter bottles) and two sandwiches.
