The beach near Rome

It will take approx 45 minutes to reach Ostia which is the nearest beach town to the Capital, although not the most glamorous of Italian beaches you will still fine nice long sandy beaches and clean water for swimming. Here you will have the option to take one of the private beaches with beachclub in which you will pay a daily rate to use the services of the club, sun loungers and umbrellas or you can head down to the free beaches and put down your towels with an option to rent the deckchairs etc. To get to Ostia Lido, take the Rome Metro Line B to the Piramide stop, then take the Ostia-Lido train in the direction of Cristoforo Colombo (using the same ticket for both). Get off at the Ostia Lido centro stop, about half an hour ride or continue to the next stop, Ostia Stella Polare for the more private beach club options.

If you prefer the free beaches get off at the last stop Cristoforo Colombo and take bus n° 7 (mare) a 10 minute ride to the gates (Cancelli). The cancelli run all down the coast but any of the first few gates will be fine. The same bus will return you to the Cristoforo Colombo station.

Otherwise a prettier beach as you can see in the photo is Santa Marinella from which you can take a train from the central station Termini in the direction of Civitavecchia. To reach Santa Marinella will take approx 1 Hour and 10 minutes.


Zoomarine is perhaps the most varied of the different waterparks in Rome, with dolphin and seal shows and even a rollercoaster as well as the standard waterslides. There’s also a big emphasis on nature and education, with various information about dinosaurs and various bird species around the park. There’s a free shuttle from Roma Termini. Opening hours: from March to October. Price: adults €25. Children under 10 €18.
