Beach Life: Fregene

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by melissa_bel on February 13, 2005

Another possibility? Fregene. It's a nice seaside town. In the 60s and 70s, it used to be the hotspot for the beautiful, rich, and famous Romans, and it still plays that old glamour card.

In the summer, some Roman nightclubs hold their summer events there (like Gilda, for instance, which has its Gilda on the Beach all summer long).

To get there, you have to take the metro line A to Lepanto, and then a Cotral bus to Fregene. It's about an hour away. Just make sure you have the schedule with you so you don't miss the bus going back!!! Go here:

I went there once and the buses were so full, they couldn't take anyone anymore! We saw several buses passing us (they had added extra buses) and got lucky enough to catch the last one.
