Rome reopens artificial beach on Tiber banks

Tiberis reopens on banks of the Tiber in Rome.

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi opened Tiberis, the city's artificial beach on the banks of the river Tiber, on the evening of 3 August.

Located near Ponte Marconi, the 10,000-sqm beach will be open for free every day, including Sundays and holidays, from 08.00 to 20.00, until the end of October.

The riverside space is equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas and showering facilities as well as a children's play area and two beach volleyball courts.

Tiberis offers Romans the chance to enjoy a once abandoned area of Rome through "nature, sport and relaxation", according to Raggi.

The artificial beach first opened last summer, on 4 August, to mixed reviews.

Tiberis is not the first 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.
