The Beaches Near Rome

Rome can get extremely hot and humid in the summertime. Most Romans have houses at the seaside that they escape to and if you have time, you should definitely visit a beach or two near Rome. Here are a few beaches that we recommend visiting:

Santa Marinella

Santa Marinella and Santa Severa are one stop away from each other on the train and they are about a 45 minute trip one way from the city center. We had this location at the top of our list because its a clean beach, the trains are frequent, and its a quick walk from the station. Santa Marinella is a seaside escape town that can get a little crowded in the summer but you usually won’t have a problem finding a bed. There is not really a free beach there so you will have to pay for a bed or a place to lay your towel out but we highly recommend this location. Just watch out for sea urchins!

Santa Severa

This is a great spot because there is a huge castle right on the sea. Its a great place for taking pictures and just relaxing on the beach. If you are taking the train, its about a 15 minute walk from the station to the beach. If you drive, there is a decent sized parking lot next to the beach. The restaurants at the beach are phenomenal as well. You will find some of the best seafood in Lazio in this town along with Santa Marinella.


As you guessed, this town was named after Neptune, the Roman god of the sea. This beach might be a little more difficult to get to but its well worth it. It has a beautiful castle on the beach and you can even snorkel around it. Its about an hour and fifteen minute car ride from the center of Rome and you will need a car so plan accordingly. Well worth the visit!



This beach may not be the cleanest beach to visit but it is definitely the easiest to get to via public transportation. In Rome, you can go to the Piramide metro station and catch the Ostia line to go to the beach. If you are standing in front of the Piramide metro, the Ostia train will be on your right side. It takes about 25 minutes to arrive in Ostia and we recommend getting off at the Stella Polare stop. From there its a quick 5 minute walk to the beach and there you will see different beaches that you can relax at. Each beach has its own vibe.

Tiffany has helped plan two trips to Italy so far, and both times we had an excellent experience! Her knowledge of the region is remarkable, and she was very attentive to our needs. Our first trip was spent in Rome, Florence and Venice, with a trip to the Vatican. The second trip was to Sorrento and Positano. Both trips were so memorable, thanks in large part to Tiffany's masterful planning! We will definitely be using Immersive Italy again in the future!

Mark & Tiffany did such a fabulous job - I cannot recommend them enough (in fact, I've told everyone I can about them). I used them to plan my 50th Birthday Girls' Trip, as I've never been to Europe. I'm an event planner with very high standards for details, and they both made my trip experience so relaxing, from buying all the train tickets to arranging private tours and drivers, to knowing where we needed to spend extra time and the order of seeing the cities and which restaurants and bars to go to. I especially appreciated their tremendous support with little things while we were there - I actually never thought we'd hear from them while there, due to the time difference, but they were so attentive, making sure we got where we needed to be at all traveling points. Beyond that, they're extraordinarily nice people, and we felt like they were part of our trip family. They paid attention to all of my 'wish list' items (cooking classes, winery tours/tastings, boat trips, food tours) and created a completely over-the-top feeling, custom trip and for much less than I would have thought it would cost. They went above and beyond every step of the way, and I can't wait until I can plan another trip with their help.

I learned about Immersive Italy Tours while I was recently traveling in Italy, and I'm glad I did! Mark shared an outline of experiences and detailed recommendations for the area I was visiting, and it saved me tons of time that I would have spent searching. Highly recommend!

Tiffany and Mark were amazing! They helped us plan our trip from NY to Rome, Florence, Ischia, and sorrento! They set up all of our travel plans within italy on the high speed trains and ferry to and from ischia. The excisions they arranged we awesome! The private day trip to Tuscany was an absolute dream with lunch at a winery and visits to Siena and San Gimignano. We had a private boat to take us out for the day around Capri that was the best! Can’t wait to go back and do it all again, with immersive Italy’s help, of course!

Our family vacation was an absolutely amazing, fully customized, unique Italian experience thanks to Immersive Italy! There’s so much to do and see there — it’s so exciting, but it can feel overwhelming when planning — that’s why we were so thankful to have expert guidance every step of the way. From coordinating our overall itinerary, train travel and professional ground transportation to specially selected tours — each experience went smoothly and took the stress out of the logistics so we could enjoy each moment. It was refreshing to know if we needed help during our trip, the team was extremely communicative and available to offer personalized assistance. We loved our private tours of some of the top tourist attractions, including: the Vatican, Colosseum and Pompeii. The English speaking guides were passionate, knowledgeable and friendly — and skipping the massively long lines to walk right in was so worth it! We especially enjoyed our private wine tour in Tuscany and day trip boating excursion to Capri — unbelievably special, amazing experiences! Huge thanks to Immersive Italy for memories that will last a lifetime.
