The Lazio region
Lazio is the region around Rome with Tuscany bordering its north. Volcanic lakes are scattered around the region's medieval towns and craggy mountains. A very rural-like pace dominates the area with the exception of Rome.
Cuisine in Lazio is among the most renowned in Italy as it is based on elements from the land: cheese, wine, artichokes, pulses, vegetables, and olive oil. Typical cheeses from this area include ricotta, pecorino, pecorino romano, and caciotta. Traditional cooking methods involve only a few simple ingredients prepared by basic means. Rome of by far the greatest attraction in Lazio, but there are many other excursions, including the historic hill top town of Tivoli and the lakes of Bracciano and Vico.
Tivoli (5km) including Villa Adriana (the stunning Hadrian's Villa). Tivoli is one of the most famous of the 7 hills surrounding Rome. Its has the famous Villa D'este water gardens and Ville Gregoriana. Tivoli captures the essence of Italian life, espresso, outside dining and familes wondering about the old town at night looking for ice cream and conversation.
