Day 7: Santa Marinella
For our final day in Italy, we thought it best to get a bit of R&R on the beach. Locals steered us away from the convenience and close proximity of Ostia Lido due to the cloudy water and crowds. We instead chose Santa Marinella, a beach with gorgeous clear water and less than an hour train ride from Rome. We paid about €30 for an umbrella and two beach chairs for the day, and there were plenty of options for food right on the beach. It was the perfect way to give our weary bodies a break from sightseeing and dream of our next European adventure.
