The town of Lido delle Nazioni is notable for its wide streets, with lots of greenery and many shops dedicated to the pleasure of a little browsing after a day at the beach. The beaches are easily accessible from the shore road and are ideal for children, with slides, swings, seesaws, and paddling pools. If you want a holiday with a special emphasis on well-being and the open air life, try the modern spa establishment which uses the local Bromine-rich water and features massage and relaxation areas.

For a plunge into the past you can visit the Capanno Garibaldi, the actual hut where Garibaldi and his dying wife Anita sheltered on August 3rd 1849.
