The Lazio region
Lazio comprises a land area of 17,236 km2 (6,654.9 sq mi) and it has borders with Tuscany, Umbria, and Marche to the north, Abruzzo and Molise to the east, Campania to the south, and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. The regions is mainly flat and hilly, with small mountainous areas in the most eastern and southern districts.
The coast of Lazio is mainly composed by sandy beaches, punctuated by the headlands of Circeo (541 m) and Gaeta (171 m). The Pontine Islands, which are part of Lazio, lie opposite the southern coast. Behind the coastal strip, to the north, lies the Maremma Laziale (the continuation of Tuscan Maremma), a costal plain interrupted at Civitavecchia by the Tolfa Mountains (616 m). The central section of the region is occupied by the Roman Campagna, a vast alluvial plain surrounding the city of Rome, with an area of approximately 2,100 km2 (811 sq mi). The southern districts are characterized by the flatlands of Agro Pontino, a once swampy and malarial area, that was reclaimed over the centuries.
The Preapennines of Latium, marked by the Tiber valley and the Liri with the Sacco tributary, include on the right of the Tiber, three groups of mountains of volcanic origin: the Volsini, Cimini and Sabatini, whose largest former craters are occupied by the Bolsena, Vico and Bracciano lakes. To the south of the Tiber other mountain groups form part of the Preapennines: the Alban Hills, also of volcanic origin, and the calcareous Lepini, Ausoni and Aurunci Mountains. The Apennines of Latium are a continuation of the Apennines of Abruzzo: the Reatini Mountains with Terminillo (2,213 m), Mounts Sabini, Prenestini, Simbruini and Ernici which continue east of the Liri into the Mainarde Mountains. The highest peak is Mount Gorzano (2,458 m) on the border with Abruzzo.
Rome today is one of the most important tourist destinations of the world, due to the incalculable immensity of its archaeological and artistic treasures, as well as for the charm of its unique traditions, the beauty of its panoramic views, and the majesty of its magnificent "villas" (parks). Among the most significant resources are the many museums – (Musei Capitolini, the Vatican Museums, Galleria Borghese, including those dedicated to modern and contemporary art and great many others) – aqueducts, fountains, churches, palaces, historical buildings, the monuments and ruins of the Roman Forum, and the Catacombs. Rome is the 3rd most visited city in the EU, after London and Paris, and receives an average of 7–10 million tourists a year, which sometimes doubles on holy years. The Colosseum (4 million tourists) and the Vatican Museums (4.2 million tourists) are the 39th and 37th (respectively) most visited places in the world, according to a recent study.
Rome is a major archaeological hub, and one of the world's main centres of archaeological research. There are numerous cultural and research institutes located in the city, such as the American Academy in Rome, and The Swedish Institute at Rome, to name a few. Rome contains numerous ancient sites, including the Forum Romanum, Trajan's Market, Trajan's Forum, the Colosseum, and the Pantheon, to name but a few. The Colosseum, arguably one of Rome's most iconic archaeological sites, is regarded as a wonder of the world.
Rome contains a vast and impressive collection of art, sculpture, fountains, mosaics, frescos, and paintings, from all different periods. Rome first became a major artistic centre during ancient Rome, with forms of important Roman art such as architecture, painting, sculpture and mosaic work. Metal-work, coin die and gem engraving, ivory carvings, figurine glass, pottery, and book illustrations are considered to be 'minor' forms of Roman artwork. Rome later became a major centre of Renaissance art, since the popes spent vast sums of money for the constructions of grandiose basilicas, palaces, piazzas and public buildings in general. Rome became one of Europe's major centres of Renaissance artwork, second only to Florence, and able to compare to other major cities and cultural centres, such as Paris and Venice. The city was affected greatly by the baroque, and Rome became the home of numerous artists and architects, such as Bernini, Caravaggio, Carracci, Borromini and Cortona, to name a few. In the late 18th century and early 19th century, the city was one of the centres of the Grand Tour, when wealthy, young English and other European aristocrats visited the city to learn about ancient Roman culture, art, philosophy and architecture. Rome hosted a great number of neoclassical and rococo artists, such as Pannini and Bernardo Bellotto. Today, the city is a major artistic centre, with numerous art institutes and museums.
Rome has a growing stock of contemporary and modern art and architecture. The National Gallery of Modern Art has works by Balla, Morandi, Pirandello, Carrà, De Chirico, De Pisis, Guttuso, Fontana, Burri, Mastroianni, Turcato, Kandisky, Cézanne on permanent exhibition. 2010 sees the opening of Rome's newest arts foundation, a contemporary art and architecture gallery designed by acclaimed Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid. Known as Maxxi National Museum of XXIst century Art and Architecture it restores a dilapidated area with striking modern architecture. Maxxi features a campus dedicated to culture, experimental research laboratories, international exchange and study and research. It is one of Rome's most ambitious modern architecture projects alongside Renzo Piano's Auditorium Parco della Musica and Massimiliano Fuksas' Rome Convention Center, Centro Congressi Italia EUR, in the EUR district, due to open in 2011. The Convention Center features a huge translucent container inside which is suspended a steel and teflon structure resembling a cloud and which contains meeting rooms and an auditorium with two piazzas open to the neighbourhood on either side.
Rome is also widely recognised as a world fashion capital. Although not as important as Milan, Rome is the world's 4th most important center for fashion in the world, according to the 2009 Global Language Monitor after Milan, New York and Paris, and beating London. Major luxury fashion houses and jewellery chains, such as Bulgari, Fendi, Laura Biagiotti and Brioni (fashion), just to name a few, are headquartered or were founded in the city. Also, other major labels, such as Chanel, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Versace have luxury boutiques in Rome, primarily along its prestigious and upscale Via dei Condotti.

"Great location for exploring Rome"
This apartment worked out perfectly for us, since we were four cousins traveling together. Plenty of room; the two bathrooms (plus washer) were convenient for four adults. There are many items on ha… More

the apartment is exactly as advertised. It was spotless. very comfortable furnishings. the location is ideal for all of central rome. easy walks to Vatican City, the colosseum and forum as well as Testaccio. this was the perfect location for us and our 3 children (12, 15 and 17.)

Had a perfect Roman holiday, this location is ideal for walking everywhere. Right off Campo di Fiori and across the road and two short blocks to Piazza Navona! I can't say enough about the apartment itself, clean, very large, and everything we needed. And the owner was so nice and helpful! I would definitely stay here again!

"Wonderful Apartment and Great Location"
Our stay in Rome in the Casa Paradiso apartment included my son and 16 year old granddaughter. The apartment was spacious and very clean and comfortable. The location could not be better. It is close … More

"Fabulous apartment in a fantastic location"
From booking to check-out, this was a wonderful choice! The apartment was in a brilliant location, close to Piazza Navona and literally around the corner from the Campo de Fiori. Laura was great to deal with: very friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more!
The apartment contained all the information we needed to settle into the area and find our way around. It was spacious, well-appointed, air-conditioning and clean and tidy. As a family of four with two late-teenage children, there was room for everyone to feel comfortable and was the perfect place to relax at the end of a full day of sight-seeing. Everything was organised and all arrangements went to plan.
I would thoroughly recommend Casa Paradiso to anyone looking for a home-away-from-home in Rome.

"Nice apartment in a great location"
We really enjoyed this apartment, especially looking back on our trip. It was in a great area of Rome, minutes away from the Campo dei Fiori which we LOVED for it's market! There were some quirks, as I have noticed for many foreign and especially older buildings (for example: the bedrooms were not even remotely sound-proof, we were confused about the trash & recycling system, the showers were small & uncomfortable) BUT it had a lot of character (the wood beam ceilings were beautiful), it was well taken care-of and clean, the a/c worked good and we weren't charged based on usage, and we had English TV!
The owners were helpful, provided a baby bed (aka pack & play), and even arranged for transportation from the airport to the apartment. We arrived very early on a red-eye from the US and they allowed us to store our luggage & check-in a couple hours early.
Also, the restaurant downstairs, Costanza, was delicious and the waiters were so welcoming & friendly every time we saw them... whether we were coming, going, or having dinner there!
I would recommend this apartment, and would stay here again!

Laura is an exceptional host. She was accommodating and helpful in every respect. I would deal with her again, without hesitation. She was always accessible.
The apartment has every amenity one might need. It was clean, tidy and modern.
It is up a couple flights of stairs, which might be burdensome to some.
The apartment sits over a restaurant - you actually enter through the restaurant courtyard. It serves a great meal. The staff there were fun and easy to get along with. They seemed to be very at ease with tourists hauling their bags through the courtyard to get to the entrance to the apartment stairs. [Eat at least one meal inside the restaurant so you can see the "bones" of the building where you are staying, which was some sort of ancient collesium. It is quite beautiful. From the outside, you would not have the slightest hint what is hidden inside the building itself.]
There is much to do and see within the immediate area. This was great for my daughter and her boyfriend who liked to wander around on their own at night, while the rest of us relaxed.
I would definitely re-book on my next trip to Rome.

"A short walk to everywhere in Rome"
We enjoyed the flat which is ideally located in the centre of Rome. It is well suite for a couple with two children or for two couples of friends. Its only downside is its situation on the floor above a restaurant (that said, there is very little noise from the restaurant and only the occasional bad smell).

"Many good features but ...."
My wife and I stayed here for one week before Christmas. The pros of the apartment are that it is large, has a nice owner, it has a good kitchen, good internet, TV and skylights. It also has a relatively good location. I would rate it higher except that the furnishings are not comfortable (main sofa should be replaced), there are no functional windows to the outside (not bright and sunny) and the second shower/bathtub has no light. There is not comfortable seating for 4 people. It was also relatively expensive considering pros and cons. Except for the windows, the apartment's problems can be easily improved.
