Vacation time also means travel time for many. It’s true that the weather in many parts of Germany gives us plenty of sunshine – but for many people, letting the wind blow in their face is simply part of the relaxation. And what better place to do that than on vacation in Italy?
However, now tourists have to deal with a heavy blow. Because a popular beach of all things is closed for the time being. For many, this may spoil the mood on their vacation in Italy.

Vacation in Italy: lack of staff has consequences
Ironically, in Ostia, a suburb of the Italian capital, Rome, things are now going downhill there. Only recently an 82-year-old drowned here, and last week a 16-year-old boy was pulled out of the water, who otherwise would have died bitterly. According to the newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung”, there have already been deaths on the beaches of the Lazio region.
But how can such accidents happen? In Italy there are lifeguards on popular beaches who are supposed to prevent accidents of this kind – naturally! Because in many tourist areas, it is the lack of staff or skilled workers that leads to an absolute emergency.

Since it is often noisy and messy on the beaches, no one wants to have a job on the beach anymore. In addition, according to the lifeguards union of Lazio, the payment for all this responsibility is very poor.
The population suffers dire consequences
The people of Ostia have had enough! Without further ado, they tape the beach in red and white and write the word “Danger” on a sign. Faced with incompetent administrators, they wrote “We are forced to close access to the beach until it is fit for use again”, and signed “Citizens of Rome”.
There are many suggestions to make Ostia beach safe again. For example, the District Councilor calls for an ambulance to be parked nearby for any emergencies. Another says that, according to the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”, the city of Rome should employ lifeguards all year round, then you can find them. On your Italy vacation, it’s best to avoid dangerous beaches – otherwise, you might end up paying for the bathing pleasure of your life.
