    Besides Rome can you guys makes any recommendations or suggestion on popular destinations where not only we can see cool ancient architecture but also enjoy swimming?

    There are nice spots all along the coasts of Italy, but one of favorite places is Taormina in Sicily which is known for its ancient architecture, and its beaches. Taormina has lovely winding medieval streets and corridors that you can explore on foot as well as nice eateries where you can enjoy a nice lunch.

    By the way, Taormina is also close to Mount Etna where you can enjoy an unforgettable tour of the area with a local tour guide.

    Have you tried Bologna? It's not exactly near the sea but Rimini, which is about 120km away, is. There's an RT train that runs every hour. Then you can see byzantine mosaics in nearby Ravenna and Classe. Bologna's better to use as a base coz there's a wider range of accommodation and it's also one of the most well preserved medieval cities in the world. It was appointed a City of Music by UNESCO in May 2006.

    Florence is amazing. Architecture there i splendid thanks to Medici Family. You will love it. Also its not that far from sea. It will teak you little bit more then an hour to get to the coast with train.

    I think Rome is the best place to which you have to visit in the Italy and there is the one beach available which name is Ostia. It is 35 min far from Rome by train.

    Whenever you visit Italy, you must take out time to go to Sardinia. The beaches there are amazing. one of my top favourites is Goloritzè with its utterly mesmerizing beauty !

    Also Calabria is a perfect travel destination in this sense! Its beaches are wonderful, the sea perfect if you like to swim, but this region is also rich in art art and monuments to see. Reggio Calabria, but also other cities, have much to offer in this sense!
