Exploring the beauty of Rome’s coast | Fregene

June 07, 2018

During the 60s and the 70s Fregene was considered to be a glamorous place, where Italian film stars gathered for an ultimate retreat away from the bustling city of Rome.  

This beach oasis has, however, been a place of refuge for the hot summer days for centuries. The shoreline of Fregene has been embellished with a pine forest since the 16th century with a purpose to protect the coast from the strong wind. Today the pine forest makes a picturesque setting against the golden sands and the luxurious estates scattered around the area.

Some of Rome’s best seafood can be found right here, in a few exclusive restaurants by the beachside of Fregene. Head towards La Baia for an experience of perfect seafood dishes served with a seaside view on the side. At Onda Anomala you are in for a treat at a beautiful beach where the younger crowd comes together and where the octopus and calamari served are fresh along with an amazing sunset view. Da Salvatore offers mouthwatering dishes based on seafood recipes served on a veranda right on the beach in an idyllic Mediterranean atmosphere.
