Good shots of the people of Rome taking off for the Lido, a beach a few miles away.
Titles read: 'ROME takes a holiday!'
Crowds of people getting onto a train at a railway station. Cars and motorbikes zoom along the road on the way to the Lido - a strip of seashore a few miles from Rome. A cruiser makes its way down a river on the way to the Lido. Good travelling shots illustrating people getting out of the city.
Crowds of people flood out of the station. Several shots of the Lido. Crowds on the beach. A girl in a swimsuit runs into the sea. Adults and children have fun in the water, splashing about and throwing beach balls. People sunbathe in deckchairs. A girl sits on a wall of a pier (?). Aerial shots of the Lido area as we fly over in a plane.
