The Lazio region
Lazio is in central Italy, on the western coast. The region was formerly known to English travellers by its Roman name, Latium, although this version of the name is now rarely used. A major port of call on the Grand Tour, when eighteenth-century travellers explored its scenic villages, Lazio is now largely overlooked in favour of its capital, Rome. With so much investment, jobs and tourism concentrated in Rome, the surrounding region is often quiet, depopulated and rather run-down. For tourists, the good side of this is the tracts of unspoiled countryside, the dilapidated but surviving historic town centres, and the welcome you may receive. Tourists are rare creatures in many of Lazio's smaller towns, and once locals realise you are interested in their hometown they are generally delighted. Naturally, Lazio - heart of the Roman Empire - is chock-full of archaeological sites. Before the Romans, the northern part of Lazio was dominated by the Etruscan civilisation. The Etruscans didn't leave many traces of their lives, but their deaths are recorded in famous burial grounds. The necropolis at Cerveteri is composed of many 'streets' of stone tombs, while the burials at Tarquinia are notable for their painted decorations. More, smaller Etruscan sites can be visited around Viterbo, while the best grave goods and artefacts are on display in the Villa Giulia in Rome. After the major Roman sites and museums in Rome, one of the best archaeological sites in the area is Ostia Antica, Rome's ruined port. Major temple complexes can be visited in Palestrina and Terracina, where a massive temple overlooks the sea. Wealthy Romans have always liked villas in the countryside, and there are ruins of villas belonging to Roman emperors at Anzio (Nero), Castel Gandolfo (Domitian; the ruins are now in the Pope's private garden), Sperlonga (where Tiberius dined in a decorated grotto) as well as Tivoli, where the most luxurious villa of all was built by Hadrian.
You can spend a relaxing holiday in the country and still be in the immediate vicinity of Rome. Vigna Licia is only 18 Km from the centre of the city and 9 Km from the ring road (GRA).
The sea is also not far with the beautiful beaches of Torvaianica and Pratica di Mare only about 15 Km away.
The Roman castles in the villages of Rocca di Papa, Grottaferrata, Albano and Ariccia, the spectacular summer residence of the Pope and some fabulous lakes are only 15 Km away.
In the area immediately around the house there is a riding school, some tennis courts and a public swimming pool not to mention the opportunities to go jogging or have a walk in the countryside.
Just a few steps down the road from Vigna Licia, there is a small grocer's and a butcher's.
