The Lazio region
Lazio is the geographical divide between Italy's north and south ... northerners such as the Milanese would doubtless argue Rome is the capital of the south, while they are the capital of the north. But in truth it is a bridge between the two. Head north out of Lazio and you are in the lush central Italian region of Tuscany. Head south and you are in the sun-soaked region of Campania ... very much the Mezzogiorno. Lazio also shares its borders with Umbria to the north, Marche to the north east, Abruzzo to the east and Molise to the south east. To the east, this long narrow region is bordered by the Apennine mountains, to the west by a lengthy stretch of Tyrrhenian coastline and beaches.
The countryside is correspondingly diverse. Holiday in the north of Lazio and you find yourself in the Lazio Maremma, an extension of Tuscany's coastal region. This is a region of lush grasslands, vineyards and olive groves. The Maremma is renowned for its cattle, producing superb beef, and for its own cowboys, the butteri, who herd them.
Towards the north-east the terrain becomes more wooded and green steadily merging into countryside reminiscent of neighbouring Umbria and Tuscany, with rolling hills. The south of Lazio closely resembles neighbouring Campania, with a countryside dotted with cactuses and bleached rock scarps.
San Polo di Tarano is an ancient medieval village 35 minutes from Rome. In San Polo is the church dedicated to St Barnabas, of ancient origin but rebuilt in the sixteenth century. You'll find here also the church of San Paolo, which keeps interesting sixteenth-century votive frescoes.
