The Lazio region

Lazio, birthplace of two of mankind’s greatest institutions, the Roman Empire and the Catholic Church, is dominated and largely defined by its capital, Rome. Since ancient Roman times the region has been an extension of the city, where noble Roman families created their own towns and the wealthy built their villas in the surrounding countryside.

Lazio is a treasure trove of the remains of age old civilizations: bridges, churches, towers, villas, monasteries, aqueducts, arches — the list is endless. To the north of Rome are Etruscan sites and the tombs of Tarquinia, founded in the 12th century BC.

The ruins of Ostia Antica, a 4th century BC port city at the mouth of the Tiber are located west of the city, with delightful beaches nearby. East of Rome toward the mountains is Tivoli, a favorite retreat for the wealthy at the height of the Roman Empire. Visit the remains of Hadrian’s Villa, completed in 134 AD, and the beautiful fountains and gardens of the Villa d’Este.

Rome

Rome, with its sun drenched ruins, its remarkable architecture, and its bounty of religious art, has been delighting visitors for centuries. A city with a millennial history, there is no street or square that does not show traces of events and civilizations long past: Etruscan, imperial, medieval, Renaissance, Baroque. There are medieval churches built over early Christian religious sites which in turn rest atop Roman palaces.

Contemporary buildings incorporate parts of Roman columns or fragments of carvings or inscriptions into their structures. Although classical Rome is most visible in the vestiges of its most imposing monuments — the Colosseum, the Forum and the temples and palaces of the Palatine Hill—its influence can also be seen in the layout of the city: streets and piazzas follow the lines of classical amphitheaters and stadiums. For example, the elegant Piazza Navona, one of the gathering points for Romans, is lined with Baroque palaces and showcases Bernini’s masterpiece, the “Fountain of the Rivers;” sit was once the Stadium of Domitian, where sports and chariot races took place! Although the look of the cen-tral city is primarily defined by the Baroque period, one can find Renaissance palaces, medieval churches, Rococo fountains, and modern structures within a few paces of each other. Elegant shops, parks and gardens, restaurants and sidewalk cafes all add to the enjoyment of this vibrant city.

The Vatican is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world and if you are visiting the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica ask Insula Vaticana Staff where to book Vatican tickets in advance to avoid long public lines.

The word VATICAN is an ancient place-name of Etruscan origin. In pre-Christian times it was applied to a vast area of swampy land stretching between what is today Trastevere and Monte Mario. During the Imperial age, however, the area was transformed into sprawling parks, with huge arenas built for sporting events.

In fact, what is now Saint Peter's Square was probably a circus for chariot racing, and the site where early Christians in the early part of the 4th Century, constructed a great basilica on the site of what is thought to be St. Peter's Tomb. The current St. Peter's, built during the 16th and 17th centuries, replaced that basilica.

For centuries the Popes lived in the area of the right bank of the Tiber that has become the Vatican City, but the Vatican only developed into the Church's governmental center in the 14th Century when Pope Gregory XI returned from exile in Avignon. And it was not until 1929, when the Lateran Treaty between Italy and the Holy See recognized its sovereignty and defined its boundaries, that the State of the Vatican City was established as the official home of the Pope and the center of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Vatican is the smallest sovereign state in the world (its 108 1/2 acres make it one-third the size of Monaco). It has its own currency, postal service, passport, newspapers, radio station and railroad system. Its population of less than 1000 consists almost entirely of Church personnel, Vatican administrators and representatives of international organizations.
