Now, most people going to Rome are not looking for a seaside village. But we had the opportunity to do a "home exchange" for 12 days over New Year's and jumped at it. We stayed in a small but charming villa, a few blocks from the sea. The town itself is nice, with good shops and restaurants, especially those along the sea. Part of the main street is edged by the beautiful pine forest planted at the direction of Pope Clement IX in the 1600's; the forest runs for more than 2 miles and has bike and walking paths. There are many large and elegant villas which are holiday homes for the rich Romans who love to come here in the summer months.
