Fiumicino with children: activities and fun for the whole family

Fiumicino, with its prime seaside location and proximity to Rome, is an ideal destination for families seeking adventure, relaxation, and fun. Starting from our B&B just a few kilometers from Leonardo Da Vinci Airport, you can reach several attractions in the area.

If you have chosen to stay with us at the Rome Airport Inn, stop by the reception or call us from your room. We can help you choose from various activities suitable for adults and children, and book the experience you prefer.

Here are some suggestions for spending a day with your family in and around Fiumicino.

The beaches of Fiumicino: from free beaches to equipped beach resorts

The beaches of Fiumicino are perfect for enjoying the sun with your children. The wide stretches of sand and shallow waters make the sea safe even for the little ones, who will have fun playing among the dunes. Along the entire coast, from Fregene to Focene, from Passoscuro to Maccarese, there are free beaches, beach resorts, and equipped lidos. There is truly an abundance of choices.

If you don’t have the possibility to move around or have limited time but still want to go to the beach, you can take advantage of a reserved spot for our guests at the La Bussola beach resort. You will have access to a large umbrella and comfortable sunbeds to enjoy the beach in total relaxation.

Walks and Bike Rides with children

For those who love to move on two wheels, feeling the wind in their hair, Fiumicino has many surprises in store. The city is crisscrossed by an extensive network of safe and easy cycle-pedestrian paths, allowing you to discover the many treasures of our area.

Starting from Ponte 2 Giugno, you can pedal along the docks of the port, admire the buildings of Borgo Valadier overlooking the river, stop for a moment to visit the large church of Santa Maria Porto della Salute, and then continue to enjoy the breathtaking view of the sea.

You can ride along the waterfront of Isola Sacra, between the Darsena and the Old Lighthouse, now abandoned.

With a bit of caution, you can take the Portuense to reach the fascinating Archaeological Park of the Imperial Ports of Claudius and Trajan.

You can immerse yourself in a journey through history and nature along the Regina Ciclarum, the bike path that follows the course of the Tiber River, stopping along the way to marvel at the great Episcopio of Porto or to enjoy a treasure hunt with the children, competing to find an old stele commemorating the Garibaldini who perished in a shipwreck in 1898 among the vegetation growing along the riverbank.

If you’re interested in a bike excursion, you can rent your e-bike directly at the Rome Airport Inn and move around in complete freedom. The facility has two electric bikes equipped with every comfort. By accessing the Unicorn Mobility app, you can unlock a range of in-app services, such as online GPS navigation and suggestions for routes and places to visit nearby based on your riding style.

Little Explorers at Ostia Antica and the Castle of Julius II

The grandeur of the mosaics and well-preserved structures captures children’s imaginations, making history tangible and fascinating.

Not far from the archaeological area is the small medieval village of Ostia Antica, dominated by the Castle of Julius II.
