Not only does the country boast splendid culture, food, arts and architecture, but the climate makes it ideal for enjoying the glorious Italian beaches. Of course, with so many of Italy’s beaches being of a high standard, it’s a difficult task to separate the superior wheat from the good wheat. Fortunately, the good people at Legambiente publish an annual list of the cleanest and most attractive beaches. The 2008 list has just been published, and the top 5 should be on any beach lover’s check list when taking a family holiday in Italy, especially when the criteria for ranking takes over 130 factors into account, including clean waters, unpolluted sands, art and cuisine!
