Although topless sunbathing in Italy is common, there are few nude beaches in Italy. The following are considered "official" nude beaches.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    You can reach Capocotta Beach, located south of Rome, via public transportation. Make sure you stay in the section designated for nude sunbathing.

  2. 2

    Costa Verde Beach, in southwest Sardinia, has a section designated for nudists.

  3. 3

    To reach Guvano Beach, take the train to the Corniglia station. From there, you follow the path to Vernazza and turn onto the path that leads towards the surf.

  4. 4

    Costa dei Barbari, in Trieste, is an official nude beach. If you're in the area, you should also visit Filtri di Aurisina, a nude beach between Trieste and Duino. The nude portion of the beach is shielded by woods.

Tips and warnings

  • Nude sunbathing is acceptable on some beaches in Italy provided it is done discreetly, so be sure that you have clothing for a quick cover-up if necessary.
