See the coast from Borghetto dei Pescatori

A small colourful fisherman's village on the coast of Rome

The Fisherman's Borough (that is the rough translation) is one of the magic areas in Italy, just a few kilometres from Rome, near Ostia. It appears on this great sandy coastline and is erected as a network of beautiful colourful, houses on one level. Fishermen erected these homes in XIX century, to be close to the sea and able to go fishing every morning. This little village has hardly changed at all. when walking around the few, but charming streets you feel as if time has stopped. In the centre, the church, San Nicola di Bari, the patron saint of fishermen, takes care of the neighbourhood You can walk to the beach, a few metres away and sit on the rocks, which defend the village from the big waves on stormy days. It has hardly changed over the years. In fact you can still see the boats that go to sea every day. There are endless walks awaiting you in the woods behind the village, where you can see the sunset.
