You might  have already  walked enough through the streets of  Rome and visited any possible museum or art exhibition,  and while you are trying to quench your thirst with a bottle of water under the shadow of a tree you are wondering how nice it would be to dive into the sea and relax on a beach not far from Rome.

Below you will find some of the beaches located near Rome that you can reach by train and enjoy your swimming.

ostiaSpiaggia

The nearest one is called Ostia, mostly frequented by Romans looking for a break from the daily stress of the city. If you walk along the beach you will find another beach called Torvajanica,

where you can find more space but is less organized. To arrive at Ostia is very simple:  go to Termini station and take the line B (the blue one) , get off at Piramide – Ostiense stop and from there you have a train that takes  you directly to Ostia  ( Station Ostia Lido; you use the same ticket from the metro). Pay attention when you leave from there  because the trains stop about 22:00 and there is the risk to remain stranded.

sperlonga

Another beach near Rome is Sperlonga, more beautiful but far from the center. The water there is very clean and to take sun you can choose between the plastic chairs you can rent on the beach or to use your  own towel, the prices are not very high if you decide to rent a chair. If you visit the center of Sperlonga and want to have dinner or a drink, pay attention on the prices because they can be a bit high in some places.

To reach Sperlonga is very easy , go to the Termini station and take the train for Sperlonga , you get off at Stazione Fondi- Sperlonga from where you have a shuttle that takes you directly to the beach for the cost of one Euro per person.

Enjoy and relax!!!

Vinoforum: Event for food and wine

1.6 – 6.6.2012 Vinoforum

Where: Flaminio (Metro A) Lungotevere Maresciallo Diaz

Price: Sunday – Thursday 16€ Open from 19.00-24.00 VINOFORUM-137

This is an event that promotes food and wine culture – including business, education and entertainment. Vinòforum 2012 is held, as usual, Tiber Marshal Diaz, in an exhibition space of 10,000 sqm en plein air, where they will present over 2500 labels in tasting the best Italian and international wine producers, culinary excellence, chefs and wineries. This ninth edition, after the success of every year in 2011 there were over 43 000 visitors puts even more emphasis on its protagonist: the wine.

In the exhibition the event will be hosted even a whole line of furniture and objects related to the consumption of wine from corkscrews to bottle, to a range of essential accessories to fully enjoy the precious night. L initiative is a collaboration between Vinòforum and vanishing point, a group of young designers who work with wood and handcrafted according to tradition.

The Capitoline Councillor for Productive Activities, Davide Bordoni said: Rome is proud to host the 2012 edition of Vinòforum, an event that confirms its ability to promote the culture and food and wine lovers and professionals involved in events level. This year I particularly appreciate the choice of the organizers to honor the Capital giving ample room for a Roman restaurant project from chef Cellars. Some of the best chefs will cook and great hostelries live and present their dishes paired with wines from the most important wineries. I think it’s a good idea to highlight two areas that give a lot to our city and our country: the catering, which in Rome is an important part of economic activities and the Capitoline wine that continues to garner awards and giving us so many important satisfactions .
