M/c/wesferners wi love In the Swim on the Roman Riviera ROME — Although cafe-sitters fondly refer to the Via Veneto, winding through the heart of Rome, as "the beach," the real beach of sun, sand and sea is never far off. What is more, Rome of late has developed a fashionable riviera stretching north and south along the coast from Ostia, 16 miles from the capital. Watching the bikinis go by is a delightful respite after climbing around the Colosseum or plodding through the corridors of the Vatican Museum. The proximity of the beaches, which links Rome with New York in eight hours by Jet Clipper means that more and more tourists are packing swim suits and sports clothes for a summer stay in the Eternal City. One of the most elegant seaside colonies on the coast is Fregene, 20 miles from Rome. This resort, less glamorous than Capri or Portofino, nonetheless draws its share of Italian movie stars and wealthy Roman residents, many of whom rent villas for the May to October season. Fregene in recent years has attracted many Americans who take cottages or apartments and commute back and forth to Rome. There are all sorts of restaurants and fine hotels set in the pine woods behind the beach. THE SWEET SUMMER LIFE IN ROME Rome nowadays is fashionable as a summer resort. Several hotels in the city and its suburbs boast rooftop swimming pools, and the Appian Way, where the Legions of Rome once marched, is an ideal spot for a picnic on a sunny day. What is more, the beaches such as the Lido Ostia are just 40 minutes by subway from downtown Rome.

COMMUNITY WASH IN RIVIERA HH1 TOWN Although the French Riviera is known for its monopoly on glamour, life in the tiny hill towns above the fashionable coast retains its charm and simplicity.

FRENCH RIVIERA IDEAL The French Riviera, despite its accent on glamor and glitter, has its share of sleepy little fishing ports and hillside villages. The western side of the coast around St. Maxime, packed with pleasure-seekers in summer, is a haven of tranquility in the fall and winter. The weather is balmy and the air fragrant with mimosa even in February. Europe Take a whirl around London! PARIS GENDARMES "PARLEZ" ENGJLISH Paris is still Paris but American frills have been added. Most Parisians speak some English, supermarkets are burgeoning, and everyone is doing the twist or the surf. The quick lunch "a I'americaine" is in vogue and businessmen sitting on bar stools eat hamburgers, sip cokes and spoon chocolate fudge sundaes. Americans in Paris prefer French customs — the leisurely lunch, the glass of wine, the sidewalk cafe. No Homesick Americans In Paris. PARIS — While the rest of the world struggles to emulate Paris fashions and the French cuisine, France finds inspiration in the American style. Nowadays, when a Frenchman speaks of life "a I'americaine," he is referring to his own high standard of living with car, dish washer, deep freeze and an assortment of other status symbols. Taking a tip from the U.S.A., France has acquired some 300 supermarkets and hundreds of snack bars since the war. A bowling alley does a booming business in the Bois de Boulogne, and American movies draw the big crowds on the Champs-Elysees. The fabled night life of Paris offers up its share of jazz, and scotch, while Parisian teen-agers in tight blue jeans surf and twist with all the frenzy of their American counterparts. What is more, the French language itself has been invaded by scores of English words and phrases, such as "le business," 'le weekend" and "le milkshake," to list but a few. The snack bar, dispensing hamburgers and hot dogs, made its Paris debut in the Thirties. The clientele at the time was mostly American with a few curious Parisians. Today, 'le snack" and "le self-service" (as the cafeteria is known) are firmly established and the patronage is Parisian with a few homesick Americans. French businessmen seem to prefer the quick lunch — sitting on bar stools, sipping a coke, eating a sandwich, spooning a banana split. As a final touch to the American charms of Paris, there is the "Drug Store" on the Champs-Elysees near the Etoile. Styled after the American drugstore, this emporium sells tobacco, souvenirs, perfumes, books, records, theater tickets and popcorn. The "Drug Store" is the place to go for American-type quick lunch or an after-theater snack. Get carried away with Rome! Discover castles on the Rhine! Declare a Pan Am Holiday in Europe!
