The Lazio region

Lazio: Still undiscovered region of fascinating nature and environment Latium is found in central Italy, located on the Tyrrhenian Sea. It borders on Tuscany, Marches, Umbria, Abruzzi, Campania and Molise. In general, Lazio has a mild climate thanks to the influence of the Mediterranean Sea., with an extraordinary variety of landscape: wide beaches, great pinewoods, mountains like Terminillo (an excellent ski resort), gentle hills and expansive plains. A region rich in artistic monuments that bring to mind the long and extraordinary history of this region in the most immediate fashion. At Tarquinia, Cerveteri and Tuscania, necropolises and museums bear evidence of ancient and mysterious Etruscan people (seventh to sixth centuries B.C.) who ruled central Italy before the rise of Rome. There are countless testimonies of the Roman and later historical eras outside Rome, in the other provinces of Latium and in the local centres: Rieti with Farfa Abbey and the Sabina region, the medieval Viterbo (city of the Popes) and la Tuscia area, Latina near the sea with the best cliffs and beaches in Latium, and Frosinone with Abbey of Montecassino and Sermoneta.

It is enough to think of the splendid and grandiose Villa Adriana in Tivoli (where the renaissance Villa d'Este can also be found), the seventeenth-century Palazzo Barberini in Palestrina, and the Cathedral in Anagni. The same grandiose style of the Roman religion seems to be projected and duplicated outside Rome: in the abbeys of Montecassino, Casamari, and Fossanova and in the monasteries of Subiaco, places dear to Saint Benedict of Norcia.

Sea: Sabaudia e S.Felice Circeo, wellknown as the best beaches and sea near Rome

Ostia Lido, the sea of Rome, is the nearest beach, at only 20 km from the city by underground.

Gastronomy in Latium.
