We take the metro-train to Lido di Ostia, where we rented an apartment.

Quote:
Ostia is a large neighbourhood in the XIII Municipio of the comune of Rome, Italy. Ostia (also called Ostia Lido or Lido di Roma or Lido di Ostia) is also the only municipio or district of Rome on the Tyrrhenian Sea and many Romans spend the summer holidays there. Sometimes it is confused with Ostia Antica, an archaeological area, that is nearby. Ostia counts about 80,000 inhabitants and it is for this reason the second biggest Italian city not having a Comune on its own, after Mestre.

ostia and fiumicino are two cities on the seaside which are part of rome metropolitan area.

Rome and italian maion airport FCO- fiumicino ha ben build between rome and these two cities.

Metro-trains connect rome and the seaside.

I 've nerver been here but the beaches doesn't look very good. But these are the nearest beaches for rome citizens.

In italy there are a lot of awesome beaches around the peninsula.

Ostia is part of Rome. Therefore, Rome has beaches..
It takes only 20 mins by car or scooter to get there from the center and about 40 with the metropolitan train..

And 30 minutes by metro.
It's not the nicest beach of Italy, indeed. But the southern parts aren't that bad at all.
Clean beaches and nice architecture.

But the northern side of Lido di Ostia is rather messy and boring...

To finish this thread, some pics of Ostia Antica:

Quote:
Ostia Antica is a large archeological site that was the harbour city of ancient Rome, which is approximately 30 kilometres northeast of the site and close to the modern town of Ostia. "Ostia" in Latin means "mouth". At the mouth of the River Tiber, Ostia was Rome's seaport, but, due to silting and a drop in sea level, the site now lies 3 kilometres from the sea. The site is noted for the excellent preservation of its ancient buildings, magnificent frescoes and impressive mosaics.
(Wikipedia)



















That's all folks. Thanks for watching and reacting!
