Beach at Ostia Lido
Although there is a small water park at the airport, it’s quicker (and cheaper) to join the Romans on the dark sandy beaches at Ostia Lido. There are both free and private beaches; the latter provide lockers to store valuables plus restrooms, while both offer beach umbrellas and reclining chairs. Restaurants, bars, and cafés back onto the boardwalk and hawkers work the public beaches selling swimming costumes, jewelry, and sarongs. Take a taxi (10 minutes) or a Cotal bus from outside airport arrivals.
