The Lazio region
LATIUM - This impressive region is often overshadowed by its capital Rome - a great injustice. The city is a wonderful tourist attraction of outstanding beauty, but Lazio has plenty of other surprises to offer. Its landscape, for example, is a veritable catalogue of variety - including plains, coastline, lakes, hills and mountains. It is no surprise that Lazio is one of the regions with the greatest biological diversity in Italy. And the region boasts just as many cultural sights as its capital too. It has a large number of archaeological monuments to offer, such as the majestic Villa Adriana in Tivoli, built by Emperor Hadrian from 118 to 138 AD. The extensive Alatri Acropolis is built high on a hill, and the Roman temple of Jupiter Anxur (312 BC) perches on the mountain of Sant'Angelo above the town of Terracina, both dating from the fourth century before Christ. There is one route in particular along the coast south of Rome, which is perfect for traversing this part of the country so rich in history: wafted by a sea breeze, travellers can explore fascinating ancient sites such as the ruins of Ostia Antica, the harbour city of ancient Rome on the mouth of the Tiber, with the Aurelian forum and the remains of the Neptune baths from the time of Emperor Antonino Pio. Further south, the coast road grazes the small WWF nature reserve at Tor Caldara, where an ancient coastal tower watches over the cliffs, watercourses, pools and a number of rare protected cork oaks. A visit to the UNESCO biosphere reserve Parco Nazionale del Circeo, Italy's largest lowland nature reserve, is another absolute must. The park contains Mediterranean shrublands and cork oaks alongside large pine groves, oak forests and reed wetlands. Four salt-water lakes near to the coast and 22 kilometres of sandy beaches with dunes are also part of this giant nature reserve on the Tyrrhennian Sea, towered over by the peak of Monte Circeo - where the enchantress Circe from Homer's Odyssey is said to have lived. The intellectual and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini and the novelist Alberto Moravia were passionate fans of this coastline's very individual beauty. Further south, beyond the elite resort of San Felice Circeo, the silhouettes of the Pontine Islands glimmer on the horizon. This small archipelago before the Gulf of Gaeta is popular with tourists, but has still retained much of its original character. Close to Viterbo, visitors will come across a very interesting curiosity: the famous sculpture park of Bomarzo, founded in 1522 by Prince Orsini. ## The park houses huge stone sculptures of monsters, dragons, fantastic beasts and mythological figures, many of them bearing mysterious inscriptions - a most bizarre experience. The territories of Tuscia, once settled by the Etruscans, also have plenty of surprises in store. The majestic Castello Odescalchi on the banks of Lake Bracciano for example, where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes held their wedding in 2006. Or the Lago di Bolsena, the largest volcanic lake in Europe. Anyone looking for culinary experiences can do no better than an expedition to the Alban Hills. The pretty, quaint villages in the hills are also called Castelli Romani. In the local family-run osterias and restaurants, the region's simple dishes are at their very best: 'Spaghetti alla carrettiera' with tuna and mushrooms, roast lamb, Roman suckling pig known as 'Porchetta di Ariccia', or braised dried cod in tomato sauce. To wash all these specialities down, there is nothing better than a young Frascati from the local vineyards.
Surrounded by green countryside, this beautiful villa with swimming pool is located in the fertile region of Pianura Pontina, in the vicinity of Latina. The proximity to Rome (70 kilometres), easily reachable by train (30 minutes from Roma Termini railway station) or by car (1 hour from the city centre), makes it an ideal starting point for exploring the charm of one of the most beautiful cities in the world without forgoing the relaxing atmosphere of the Roman countryside. The area boasts also many interesting towns such as Gaeta, Sperlonga, Sabaudia and Sermoneta, with Naples 175 km away.
