My partner and I are traveling to Italy for the first time for an 11-day stay in late May. We have roundtrip tickets in/out of Rome/Fumicino. We're planning the first three days in Rome and then would like to take a 4-day stay in a beach town, before finishing the trip with a visit to Tuscany/Florence.
What are the best and untouched beach towns? We're open to the Adriatic Sea coast or the Tyrrhenian coast (or even Ligurian Sea). We're looking for a place that's not frequented by tourists and that is a true example of a small Italian city. We're frequent world travelers and enjoy a rustic and "off-the-beaten-path" kind of excursion.
Would the weather be warm enough for a good beach trip around that time of year? We're open to traveling by train or by renting a car.
If you know of a beach town that is especially good for LGBT folks, that's an added bonus for us. I'm also a professional cellist, so a place that has a good music scene is an extra-extra plus!
