The Lazio region
The region of Lazio, rich of culture and nature, is situated in the centre of Italy.
Hilly landscapes with olive- and vine cultivations and the lakes Bracciano and Bolzena characterizes the north of the region. The culturally heydays are the famous Etruscan excavation and the sulphur-wells, where you can spoil your skin under the open sky.
Rome is the culturally and economically center as well as the capital city of Italy, located directly in the heartland of Lazio.
Mountains are in the south, rising above 2000 meters; lower, heading the coast the gentle green slopes are overgrown with orange-and lemon trees and olive-and vine cultivations.
The coast is uneven, sandy beaches alternate rocky cliffs, suggestive little bays and hills are covered with Mediterranean spontaneous vegetation (macchia mediterranea).
Thousands of years of history signed the landscape, increasing the cultural value of this land: Excavations from the Roman and the pre-Roman time (Etruscan, Ausonia and Aurunci), medieval towns, monasteries and convents, make the stay in Lazio always an astonishing experience.
The region has many nature reserves and little protected oasis; very beautiful for short walks, hiking tours or trekking.
The Garigliano river natural park at the board with Campania offers multiple opportunities to come in contact with the lush river vegetation and the wild animals that inhabit along the banks.
Thermal springs are to find in the region of Viterbo, Tivoli and Fiuggi and in the south in Suio.
Located in the south of the region, The Pontine Islands join sensational nature, clear water, characteristic fisher towns and Roman culture. The main Island Ponza is also called pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The food and wine tradition might deserve its own chapter: fish and seafood on the coast; rustically cuisine in the countryside (meat and sausage, cheese and a lot of different vegetables), buffalo mozzarella, and olives of Gaeta are only some examples.
Lots of tasty and important wines are available for experts and curious tasters, thanks to the unique warm weather and the composition of the soil.
The area between south of Lazio and northern Campania, named Campania Felix by the ancient Roman, produces since centuries a particular wine, called Falernus, one of the many wine excellence of the area.
Day trips for unforgettable holidays: Rome, Naples, Pompeii, the Vesuvius, Caserta, Monte Cassino, the Pontine Islands, Ischia, and Capri...
Formia is located in the south of the Latium at the gorgeous Gulf of Gaeta. The Gulf of Gaeta is surrounded by the gigantically mountain range of the Aurunci Mountains. They rise in a height of 1500 meters, the foothills stretch to the sea. Therefore, the coast is very rough: long sandy beaches, small bas and steep coasts. In this area, the climate is Mediterranean and very mild throughout the year. The average temperature is about 14, 6 degrees in the winter months.
The typical vegetation is olive trees, lemon- and orange trees, fig trees and palms. Gaeta's olives are very famous in this area.
Formia is also the commercial center of the Gulf. The Via Vitruvio in the center and large shopping centers invite for shopping.
You are welcome in medieval old towns with small alleys and steps, old churches, small mountain villages and ruins from the antique Roman- and pre-Roman times. Among other things you can visit the Villa Marmurra in Formia and the ruins of the Roman town Minturnae with the amphitheater in Minturno.
There are lots of activities for friends of nature and long walks. Two nature reserves are nearby: the Aurunci Mountains with well-marked footpaths and the nature reserve Riviera di Ulisse where culture meets nature.
Enjoy the Mediterranean charm: during walks, at the fish marked, with a good Italian ice-cream or with a romantic dinner in ones of the genuine restaurants.
