The best beaches near Venice, Florence and Rome

Rome, Lazio

The capital of Italy has many beautiful and well-equipped beaches you can easily reach in a day.

To the North of the city you’ll find Santa Marinella but also the beach of Civitavecchia (in the province of Rome), both about 80 km far from the Capital.

Undoubtedly the nearest beach is Ostia Lido, which is also the favorite destination for all the inhabitants of the Capital, since it is reachable in less than an hour by car (it’s 30 km far from Rome).

While if you want to explore the area belonging to the province of Latina to the south of the Capital, you’d better head to the beaches of Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo, Sperlonga, Gaeta but also Scauri.

They are farer than the first ones, but believe us, they definitely worth the journey.

Florence, Tuscany

Also Florence boasts a long list of beautiful beaches you can easily reach in a day, starting from all those located along the Versilia coast (best known for its fashionable riviera resorts and night clubs) where in about an hour and a half, you can sunbathe at the beach of glamorous Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Pietrasanta, Lido di Camaiore, Viareggio and Torre del Lago.

While if you are ready to spend more time traveling to reach the sea from Florence, here are some beaches which are definitely worth the journey: the Etruscan Coast includes the crystalline clear water beaches of Castiglioncello, Rosignano Solvay, Vada, Marina di Bibbona, San Vincenzo, Cecina and Baratti.

Venice, Veneto

Beyond its romantic and charming canals, Venice also boasts a strategic location, which allows its guest to reach in not so much time beautiful and sunny beaches.

The nearest ones (less than an hours of journey by car) are those of Jesolo and Eraclea Mare, well equipped and easily reachable in a day.
