The Lazio region
Lazio, "Latium" in antiquity, is a beautiful region on the western coast of central Italy. The region is now largely overlooked in favour of its capital, Rome, called the Eternal City because of its incomparable historical and artistic heritage. All roads lead to Rome, as they say. However the surrounding region is also interesting, with its variety of extraordinary landscapes and environments waiting to reveal their endless attractions in any time of the year.
A lot of things can be done in Lazio. Trekking is possible and you can take a hike in naturally hilly and mountainous areas, but for those who like sea, you can visit a lot of areas where you can admire long beaches and dedicate your time into any kind of water sports.
At the Rome doorsteps, stands Tivoli, a really interesting spa city famous for the thermal baths of Tivoli, well-known touristic area; another place to see is Viterbo, provincial capital seat, famous for being a major Lazio spa city and Lazio art city.
40 km away from Rome stands Calcata, small village built in the tuff where European artists came to live in the 70's.
Landscape and climate:
The territory of the region is predominantly mountainous and hilly, while lowlands are found in proximity to the coastal shores. The coastal part has profited from the sea that mitigates the winters and refreshes the summers. In the departs inside of the Region the winter is more rigid and the summer is warm.
It is hard to talk about Rome in a few words. In every street and every corner, a thousand years of History narrates itself. Rome the Empire capital, Rome of the gladiators, Rome the Eternal City, but also the lovely and romantic Rome which make you fall in love in just a nightly Vespa drive (like Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn into Roman holiday).
Among the many historic artistic and architectural treasures of Rome, one of the most famous is undoubtedly the Spanish Steps. On the one hand, the square is characterized by the very famous stairway of Trinità dei Monti, theater of fashion shows and film sets, while on the other, it is linked to Via dei Condotti. In its center stands the Bernini's sculpted Fountain of the Old Boat (Fontana della Barcaccia), one of the most famous architects of papal Rome of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
If you are in Rome and want to come back, then do not hesitate to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to fulfill your desire.
The Trevi Fountain was a movie set, theater of demonstrations and large parties’ stage. One thing is clear: only Anita Ekberg in "La Doce Vita", can afford to bathe in the fountain, and Totò in the movie Totòtruffa '62 is the only one who can afford to sell it!
Pantheon is a must-see that can be reached easily in a short walk, as the traditional path to visit monuments in Rome is a long way. The recommanded stop is Piazza di Spagna, from where you can reach Via del Corso and from there, passing from Mount Citorio and the Parliament, you can reach Pantheon. You must taste "il caffè" (coffee) at the "Sant'Eustachio" bar, one of the most famous in Rome.
Not only Art and History, but Fashion also. For those wishing to follow an itinerary full of glamour, Rome doesn’t disappoint. It’s just a ride through the streets of the city center, between Via del Corso and Via del Babuino, where are the major Italian and international brands, as well as the area of Campo Marzio: there are spoiled for choice for luxury purchases. Near the Spanish Steps, in fact, there are women and man garments, accessories and shoes. Rome offers solutions for all tastes, but also for all budgets: not all are attractive and to major ateliers, some still prefer the traditional markets where you can look for clothes and special items. If you belong to this kind of tourist, you've come to the right city, as the streets of Rome are filled up with markets where customers can buy at a lower price and get a bargain.
Rome is not just art, culture and shopping but good food as well.
In the city center you can find some typical and not very touristy "Trattoria" (restaurants) to eat succulent bucatini all'amatriciana, spaghetti alla carbonara, abbacchio alla romana (baby lamb), la coda alla vaccinara (veal tail), la porchetta di Ariccia (boneless pork roast), served with the famous Roman artichokes.
After visiting churches and museums, don't even think for a moment that your Roman day is over. Rome nightlife is at least as busy as during the daylight hours and, gathering your strength, you can dive into city nightlife, made up of restaurants, bars and discos that leave no room for boredom. Given the size of the city, it's easy to imagine the many alternatives it offers during the evening. Leisure and entertainment for every taste, every budget and most of all, for all ages. Just choose the kind of evening you want to have and all of your needs will be met.
