Do beaches close in Italy in September

Please end an arguement (heated debate!!) I am having with my husband. He wants us to go to Italy about the 9th September this year for about 10 days - he thinks the weather will still be really warm and the beaches less crowded.

I have heard that at the end of August the Italians close their swimming pools and many of the beaches start bringing in their sun beds and closing down facilities like beach bar restaurants etc.

Can anyone help me - obviously I would love to go to Italy again but not if no atmosphere - my plan is California for a drive from San Franscisco to Los Angeles whilst the dollar/pound is in our favour.

Many thanks and NO - no divorce, just constructive help to make us decide.

Milan, Italy

September whether is still nice and less crowded and for the first 2 weeks of the month I wouldnt see any prob for you.

Even if beach facilities (called "bagni") are closed, you can always go to the free spots available, bring your own stuff and enjoy the less crowded Italian beaches.
