Beach break from touring vineyards

In June 2010 we are visiting Tuscany, Umbria and possibly Piedmont to enjoy the countryside and visit some good wine estates. After the latter we would like to spend three or four days relaxing in an affordable coastal town with good beaches. This town can be anywhere in the three regions mentioned above and ideally would have a good rail connection to either Rome or Milan for our trip back to the USA. Any suggestions?

Piedmont and Umbria are landlocked. But the beach towns of Liguria are not far away from Piedmont and well connected by rail. Consider Santa Margherita Ligure or the smaller, less expensive Chiavari.

Le Marche is reasonably close to Umbria, but train connections are not quite as good. Possibilities would be Senigallia or San Benedetto; I'd avoid Rimini.

Tuscany has many beach towns, but consider a place like Castiglione del Pescaia rather than out-and-out beach resorts like Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi.
