The Lazio region

Rome is the capital city of Italy. It is the centre for government institutions and public administrations. It is situated in the Lazio region and grew from the shores of the river Tiber. Rome’s historic centre is famous worldwide for its seven hills: Palatino, Aventino, Campidoglio, Quirinal, Viminale, Esquilino and Celio.

Rome covers an area of 1285 km2 and has a population of 2.700.000 inhabitants. It is divided into 19 municipalities and is a very large city with many interesting sites to visit. You will therefore need to plan your itinerary carefully if you want to have enough time to see it all.

Amongst all the places worth visiting, a highlight is the Capitoline Hill and its square, which was designed and built in the 16th century by the famous architect Michelangelo. There you can see the famous statue of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius; the Capitoline Museums where you can see the she-wolf suckling the twins Romus and Remulus, a bronze sculpture which is the symbol of Rome; the Roman Forum with its majestic arch of Septimus Severus; the Imperial Forum; the temple of Caesar, which was erected on the spot where Caesar was cremated; the Arch of Titus, the Palace of the Palatine, the Vittoriano, a majestic building dedicated to King Vittorio Emanuele II where major temporary artistic exhibitions are held; the Coliseum, the Arch of Constantine, the Trojan Column; Plaza Navona, with its Baroque style; the Trevi Fountain, the world-famous Piazza di Spagna , many churches, Castel SantÁngelo; Plaza del Popolo and its church, Santa Maria del Popolo; Ara Pacis; the Pantheon, etc.

Amongst the museums and monuments, do not miss the National Gallery of Ancient Art in the Palazzio Barberini, the Borghese Gallery, the Quirinale, the Baths of Dioclecian, Villa Farnesina, the Monumental gates, the catacombs and the Roman aqueducts.

The tourist sites in Rome can be divided into two groups according to their location, intramural or extramural, that is to say inside or outside the walls of Ancient Rome.

Rome is also famous for being the Seat of the Vatican, the Holy See, with Saint Peter’s Basilica and its impressive frescoes by Michelangelo, the most famous, and the most admired of which cover the vaults of the Sistine chapel.

The name “Rome” has several meanings, including ‘’strength’’ and ‘’flow’’, as if the city flowed along the river Tiber.

Tourism is one of the major economic activities in Rome thanks to the multitude of sites and historical monuments that the Roman city boasts.

Alongside the Italian governmental and administrative institutions, major financial institutions, such as banks and insurance companies have their headquarters in Rome. But Rome is also considered the capital city of cinema and television thanks to its important TV and film production centre, called “Cinecittá”.

Rome is home to important state and private universities; the most important ones are “La Sapienza”, the largest university in Europe which dates back to 1303, the International University for Social Studies LUISS, the University of Sacro Cuore (medicine and economy), the University-Campus bio-medico of Rome, the European University, the S. Pio V University (economy, translation and political studies), and the “Guglielmo Marconi” Telematic University.

There are also major academies, such as the oldest Music academy in the world, the Santa Cecilia Academy, and the Academy of Fine Arts.

The FAO (Food and Agricultural Organisation), a United Nations agency, has its headquarters in Rome.

Rome’s historical centre, along with the Vatican, the Basílica de San Paolo outside the walls and, since 1990, the entire area within the walls of Urbano VIII, have now been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO.

Lido di Ostia

Evidence of Antique Ostia dates back to 1400 B.C. but is said by some, to have been founded by the fourth king of Rome, Ancus Marcius, who ruled in the late seventh century BC. Although Ostia contains numerous archaeological sites, until now no archaeological remains have been found in or near Ostia dating back to this period but nonetheless, the belief is that this settlement exited. The path of a road from this period, which started at the mouth of the Tiber, and continued towards the south-east, can still be traced.

Ostia is a city filled with ruins and an important history which could take pages to fill. Some of the highlights of its history begin with the oldest settlement found that dates back to 400 B.C. up to 267 B.C. The settlement is called the Castrum, a large rectangular military base built with walls in large blocks of tufa.

In the 3rd century B.C. the port of Ostia was a naval base and a century later the port began to be used as a commercial harbour where grain was imported from Sardinia, Sicily, and Africa. With the import of slaves and immigration, the population of Ostia soon rose to 50,000 with nearly one-third being slaves coming from the Egypt, Turkey and the Middle East.

The natural aspect of Ostia makes of it a romantic site but the preservation of it is a continuing and difficult task.

To visit Ostia by car, take the Via del Mare and follow the plentiful yellow road signs marked "Scavi di Ostia Antica."

By subway from Rome, take the Metro B from Termini Station, in the direction of L'Eur Fermi. Get off at Magliana and change subways in the direction of the Lido. (longbeach) and get off at Ostia Antica.

Allow yourself at least four hours for a leisurely visit. Wear shoes and socks to protect yourself from prickly weeds abound. Organized day tours are available within the archaeological sites and the Ostia Antica amphitheatre offer many shows, music concerts. The Ostia Beach Front offers a very wide range of bathing establishments which are fully furnished with all that is necessary to offer a pleasant day into the organized evening entertainment.

With an Ostia Ferry one can enjoy an organized cruise down the Tiber river all the way to the centre of Ancient Rome.
