Rome's artificial beach on the river Tiber expected to open in August.
Rome is preparing to open its long-awaited artificial beach along the banks of the river Tiber, between the S. Paolo and Marconi districts south of the city centre.
Sand has been delivered to the 10,000-sqm site and public acess routes have been established to the riverside beach, which was first announced by Rome's mayor Virginia Raggi last December.
Authorities still have to spread the sand over the reclaimed marshland, with an opening date expected in August according to local media reports.
This is not the first time that Rome will have a man-made beach on the Tiber: in 2005 former mayor Walter Veltroni launched the Tevere Village beach under Castel S. Angelo, between Ponte S. Angelo and Ponte Umberto I.
