The Lazio region
The name derives from the ancient inhabitants of the Lazio region, Latin, and it seems to mean "flat country".
At the dawn of the civilization of Rome, Latium was a region much smaller than it is today: in fact, only extended from the Sabine Mountains to the sea. Between Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo, Molise and Campania, Lazio today stretches from the mouth of Chiarone north to the south of the Garigliano, Umbria-Abruzzo Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Nearly parallel to the coast, runs a belt of hills of varying nature: Preappennini. From north to south, follow the four mountain ranges of volcanic origin: the Volsino, Cimini, Sabatini and Colli Albani. In the ancient craters of extinct volcanoes, some lakes were formed: those of Bolsena, Bracciano, Nemi and Vico. The sides of these mountains are fertile and covered with vegetation, even though they largely disappeared in the thick forests of beech, chestnut and oak trees which once covered the slopes. Further south are Lepinis Ausoni and Aurunci, reliefs of limestone, barren and devoid of water. I copied between the mountains and the Apennines Valley opens the bag, known as the Ciociaria, the most fertile area of ??the region. Further inland are the Apennines, near the Tiber Valley, imposing massive rise here, as Scanni Mountains, which culminate in the summit of Terminillo at 2216 meters. Their slopes are covered with beautiful forests of beeches, oaks, chestnut trees and expansive. The fauna, due to favorable climatic conditions, is very rich. In the Latium Maremma wild boar and deer abound, and there are foxes, porcupines, badgers, wild cats. The peaks you can instead run into wolves bears. Living in the region also the smallest mammal in Italy, the Etruscans mustiolo, a rodent just six centimeters long.

Thousands of years of history, characterized by the presence of glorious empires, have left to Rome a historical and artistic heritage like in few other places of the world. Everywhere it is possible to find marks of hundred years culture: treasures of incomparable beauty made of squares, palaces, alleys, churches and fountains. It would be very hard to introduce all the tourist attractions that Rome has to offer. Anyway, here by we provide you with a selection of what you cannot absolutely miss during your visit to Rome.
The arena, also known as Amphitheatre Flavio, was built in 72 a.C. by emperor Vespasianus. At its insides took place bloody battles among gladiators, slaves, prisoners and wild animals, becoming one of the main attractions for emperors and the roman people.
The Imperial Forums consist in a series of monumental squares in the city centre and were the symbolic heart of the roman empire. They had been continuously refurbished by emperors between II century B.C. and IV A.C., in order to give an aspect of authority and always greater wellness to Rome.
This temple was erected between 119 and 128 A.C. by emperor Adrianus. The diameter of this incredible framework is exactly equal to its height and this is the reason behind its perfection and majesty.
This wonderful square of a theatre-like shape assumed its current aspect around the half of 17th century. The main artistic attraction at the middle of the square is the Four River's Fountain, one of Bernini’s most extravagant works, finished in 1651.
Piazza di Trevi
The name of this square is due to the three streets that conduced to it, even if at the moment the streets are more than that number. At the centre of the square is the amazing homonym fountain, Rococò artwork of Nicolò Salvi, inside which, as a tradition, people throw a coin to ensure the return to the Eternal City.
This magnificent square, that in the 16th had the function of canalizing the crowds of pilgrims that came to the city directed to the Vatican, is today the meeting point preferred by tourists. Its symbols are the renowned staircase that conduces to Trinità dei Monti Church and the Barcaccia Fountain of Bernini.
The Vatican is the smallest State of the world, holy see of the catholic church and the Pope. Inside the boundaries of this independent country, but hosted in the territory of the city of Rome, are a lot of monuments and tourist attractions, among which the most important are St. Peter’s Church, the Vatican Museums and Castel Sant’Angelo.
St. Peter’s Church
St. Peter is the most important church of Rome and the centre of Catholicism. The building of the Basilica as we see it today was concluded in 1626 during Urban 8th pontificate. Great architects such as Bramante and Michelangelo contributed to its construction in different ages. In the catholic tradition it is thought that St. Peter, one of Gesus’ prophets and first pope of Christianity, had been buried in the same place where after many centuries the basilica was erected.
At the Vatican Museums it is possible to admire the immense art masterpieces' collection accumulated from various Popes that succeeded since 16th century.
This mausoleum built by emperor Adrianus in 135 a.C. and destinated to himself had been first a fortress, then a prison and finally residence of the Pope. By now cultural events of different kind are hosted inside of it. www.castelsantangelo.com
