The Lazio region
The region of Lazio, rich of culture and nature, is situated in the centre of Italy.
Hill landscapes with olive- and vine cultivation and the seas Bracciano and Bolzena characterizes the north of Lazio. 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 centre directly in the heartland of Lazio and the capital city of Italy.
Mountains are in the south of Latium, rising above 2000 meters; at the lower sites are green hill landscapes, overgrown with orange-and lemon trees and olive-and vine cultivation. The coast is very varied: you can find little bays, steep coast, long sandy beaches and hills covered with Mediterranean plants (macchia mediterranea).
Excavations from the Roman time and the pre-Roman time (Etruscan, Ausoner, Aurunci), medieval towns, monasteries and convents, small fishing villages and characteristically villages in the mountains have formative influences to this region.
Lazio has many nature reserves and little protected oasis; very beautiful for walks, longer walking tours or trekking.
Thermal springs are to find in the region of Viterbo, Tivoli, Fiuggi and in the south in Suio.
Fish and seafood you can get in all varieties as a speciality at the coast; a rustically cuisine interior (meat and sausage, cheese and a lot of different vegetables).
The buffalo mozzarella and the olives of Gaeta are an exceptionally culinary speciality.
Recommendable day trips for unforgettable holidays: Rome, Naples, Pompeii, the national park Vesuvius, Caserta, Monte Cassino, the Pontine Islands, Ischia, 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 vegetations are olive trees, lemon- and orange trees, fig trees and palms. Gaetas olives are very famous in this area.
Formia is also the commercial centre of the Gulf. The Via Vitruvio in the centre 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 amphitheatre 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.
Formia is also an optimal starting point for daily trips to the cities Rome, Naples, Pompeii, and Caserta, the islands, the mountains, the archaeological excavations, monasteries, converts and Roman bathing.
