More than two out of three Italians have already returned from their holidays and many of them are ready to resume work, leaving behind memories of beaches, sun and relaxation. Yet, thanks to smart working, the ‘lucky’ ones could work remotely in maritime locations with crystal-clear beaches. And Italy is full of such places.

Abitare Co. has thus analysed how much it would cost on average to rent a two-room apartment in the period from the last week of August to mid-September in 77 seaside resorts (out of 201 total) that have been awarded the coveted Bandiera blu (Blue Flag), the recognition given by the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) to municipalities that pay attention to water quality, services offered and environmental management.

Abitare Co.’s analysis of the regions that have obtained at least 7 Blue Flag beach resorts

There are solutions for all budgets. To rent a two-room apartment in Blue Flag resorts, the average price is 630 euros per week, but prices vary considerably depending on the area. They range from 380 in Menfi (Agrigento), Praia a Mare (Cosenza) and Petacciato (Campobasso) to 1,000 in Santa Margherita Ligure (Genoa), Levanto (La Spezia), Positano (Salerno) and Anacapri (Naples). The most expensive is Lerici (La Spezia), with a cost of €1,120 per week.

Compared to the same period five years ago, however, on average prices have increased by +29%, with peaks of +171% in Cattolica (Rimini), +153% in Cervia (Ravenna), +142% in Caorle (Venice) and +133% in Eraclea (Venice).

On the contrary, Follonica (Grosseto) saw the sharpest drop in prices (-18%), followed by Ispica (Ragusa) with -17%, Palau (Sassari) and Pietrasanta (Lucca) both with -16%.


The region with the highest number of Blue Flags is Liguria, with 32 seaside resorts. The price analysis considered only 11 of these resorts: to work from places you start from 520 euros per week to rent a two-room apartment in Loano. They are followed by Borghetto Santo Spirito (560), Bordighera and Moneglia (600), Albissola Marina (680), Varazze (770), Loano (880), Chiavari (960), Levanto and Santa Margherita Ligure (1,000) and Lerici (1,120). Lerici is also the most expensive resort among those analysed.

The biggest price increases, compared to 5 years ago, were recorded in Loano (+115%) and Borghetto Santo Spirito (+100%).


In Campania, 19 seaside resorts were awarded the Blue Flag. These include San Mauro Cilento and Castellabate (480 per week), Positano and Anacapri (1,000).


In Tuscany, 17 seaside resorts have been awarded the Blue Flag. In particular, in Cecina, the cost of renting a two-room apartment for a week is 520 euros. This is followed by Follonica (540), Bibbona and Carrara (600), Rosignano Marittimo and Castagneto Carducci (620), Castiglione della Pescaia (640), Viareggio (680), Camaiore, Marciana Marina and San Vincenzo (720) and the most expensive Forte dei Marmi (920).

The biggest increase in prices, compared to 5 years ago, is in Rosignano Marittimo (+41%).


In Apulia, 17 seaside resorts have been awarded the Blue Flag. These include Castellaneta (470 euros per week), Polignano a Mare (480), Margherita di Savoia (500), Otranto (510), Melendugno (520), Ostuni (560), Ginosa (600) and Fasano (710).

The biggest price increases compared to five years ago were recorded in Fasano (+42%) and Margherita di Savoia (+39%).


The Marche region has obtained 16 Blue Flag municipalities. An analysis of some of these towns shows that if you want to rent a two-room apartment for a week, you have to expect 490 euros in Grottammare and Fano, 520 in Gabicce Mare, 680 in Numana and 700 in Sirolo.


The extreme tip of the boot has 15 Blue Flag seaside resorts. One example is Praia a Mare, where you have to spend about 380 euros for a week. However, this figure is 14% lower than five years ago.


Fourteen seaside resorts in the region have been awarded the Blue Flag. Among the municipalities with “clean” beaches, some examples include Quartu Sant’Elena, where the cost per week for a two-room apartment is an average of 440 euros. In Santa Teresa Gallura and La Maddalena 520, in Tortolì and Palau 560.

The greatest increase in prices, compared to 5 years ago, is recorded in Tortolì (+33%).


13 resorts in Abruzzo have also been awarded the coveted Blue Flag. To continue your holiday in some of these places, the budget per week is 440 euros in Tortoreto, 480 in Vasto and Silvi.


There are 11 Lazio resorts that have been awarded the Blue Flag. An average of 520 euros is needed to rent a two-room apartment in Anzio, 600 in Gaeta, 620 in San Felice Circeo, 710 in Sperlonga, 740 in Terracina and 780 in Sabaudia. The most expensive is Ventotene (960).

The biggest price increases compared to 5 years ago are in Sperlonga (+58%), Sabaudia (+56%) and Ventotene (+55%).


The Sicily region has been awarded 10 Blue Flag municipalities. An analysis of some of these towns shows that anyone wishing to rent a two-room apartment for a week has to expect an average of 380 euros in Menfi, 400 in Pozzallo and Ispica, 440 in Lipari, 500 in Ragusa.


Nine seaside resorts in Veneto have been awarded the Blue Flag. These include Eraclea, where the average cost per week for a two-room apartment is 420 euros, Chioggia (460), Rosolina Mare (840), Jesolo Lido (880) and the most expensive Caorle (920).

The biggest increase in prices, compared to 5 years ago, is recorded in Caorle (+142%).

Several towns in Romagna have been awarded the Blue Flag. To work in some of these places, the budget per week is 480 euros in Cesenatico, 600 in Ravenna, 760 in Cervia and Bellaria-Igea Marina, 920 in Cattolica.

The biggest price increase compared to 5 years ago was recorded in Cattolica (+171%) and Cervia (+153%), the highest percentage values among all the locations analysed.
