5 Best Beaches Near Rome
Now that you have your transport sorted, you can head out of the city and revel in the white sands and warm waters of the Mediterranean. Here's where we'd go:
With its picturesque village, icing-sugar sand, and Blue Flag status, Sperlonga is a clear winner within a two-hour drive of Rome. If you tire of the beach, there's a stunning archaeological museum on the site of Emperor Tiberius's grotto.
Maccarese is a delightful rural community less than 40km from Rome. Surprisingly quiet, given its location, it is far less crowded than the beaches further south and makes a perfect retreat for relaxing in the heat of the Mediterranean sun.
Anzio is another remarkably clean and beautiful beach. Winner of the sought-after Bandiera Blu in 2010 and 2011, the endless stretch of golden sand extends to the harbour at Anzio's harbor, where you will find several superb seafood restaurants.
Another recipient of the coveted Bandiera Blu, Sabaudia is one of Italy's finest beaches. The perfect Mediterranean beach hideaway, it offers gleaming sand and pristine sapphire water under 65 km from Rome.
More suited to people-watching than retreating, Lido di Ostia is the longest and busiest beach in Rome. A 10km stretch of sand that lies just 30km from the centre of Rome, this beach gets extremely busy in summer, but it offers more than 50 private beach areas to accommodate the tens of thousands of Romans who flock here each July Sunday.
