Many Italians enjoy spending time by the sea, especially during July and August. During this time, nearly 8,000 kilometers of coastline, much of which is pristine or close to it, becomes the second home for millions of families and friends who have received the best advice on which beach to visit. Before arriving on the sand, it is important to know what to expect. Many beaches in Italy are dominated by 'stabilimento', which are beach clubs that require a daily fee for entrance to their stretch of the sea and provide lounge chairs, bathrooms, and other facilities.
