  • Are the surrounding beach towns of Rome still active during December?

Ostia is a port as well as a beach town so there should be open shops and restaurants there. Amalfi and Sorrento are probably closed down for the winter.

There will be some places that will be open and some that are closed for the season in any of the towns. Expect it to be cold, but rather it's worth it or not to you really depends on your expectations.

More clearly, maybe. I haven't been to the beach in the south but in the north our cousin has a beach resort. Unlike in America, European beaches are leased from the city by vendors who control that spot - there are a few free spots but the good ones are all for pay. You rent an umbrella, a chair and time on the beach. Our cousin closes his down in September - he has a small bar and restaurant as part of it, and he closes those, too. So, bottom line for you, in December - the resort spots will be closed but that means the beaches are wide open and free. Some of the permanent restaurants no doubt will be open. If you want to see the ocean then sure, why not? It won't be happening like the summertime, but it's still the ocean.

Beach towns are still towns............even in the winter. Restaurants and shops will still be open.......but the beaches won't exactly be "happening" places. might have hearty surfers in wet suits.. or people Flying kites and that sort of thing. ....and usually there's a "Polar Bear" swim for New Years.........where people will brave the chilly waters, for laughs.
