Lavinio is a small beach side tourist town in Lazio, Italy, about 50 km west of Rome and sports a wide sandy beach. The site of the ancient Latin settlement of Lavinium, now some distance from the sea, is at Pratica.

Lavinio is not far from the regional park of Tor Caldara, as well as from the small cities of Anzio and Nettuno.

During the World War II, many Allied soldiers fought and died on the beach and in the surrounding countryside of this town. As perennial memory, a marble stele, elevated and in front of the sea, remembers this sacrifice.
