The Lazio region
The Lazio region, or better: Latium, is dotted with little marvels to be discovered. Just as Rome is Heritage of Humanity also the wonderful Villa Adriana in Tibur (Tivoli) built by Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD, introducing the most innovative characteristics of the time of Roman architecture; and the beautiful Villa d'Este, always in Tivoli, commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, son of Lucrezia Borgia; the fascinating Etruscan Necropolis of Cerveteri and of Tarquinia are among the most important sites of the World history.
The Lazio cuisine is largely represented by the Roman one. Where goes a Roman citizen to eat real Roman cuisine? To the Castelli Romani! The area surrounding the Capital, as Ariccia. Rivers of food and wine fill your stomach and make you sing!
But in Lazio there is not only good wine, Craft-beer is a must that combines old and new recipes to be discovered!
In Lazio there are cities, borghi (historic towns), hills, mountains and sea. The perfect synthesis is in the Circeo National Park, a protected area in the coast between Anzio and Terracina, declared a World Heritage Site because is a "biosphere reserve".
Rome, the Eternal City, doesn't need introductions. During these three millennia has been the heart of that civilization that influenced culture, language, literature, art, architecture, philosophy, religion, law and customs of the world in the following centuries.
The Urbe is full of activities, in Sundays Via dei Fori Imperiali is closed in order to enjoy a fantastic view running by bike or skateboard; is full of cultural connections, from the House of Jazz or Jazz Tram, the student circles of poetry, artists, the amazing street performances often organized by the City.
The city is so full of history that you can come without having a plan. Even just walking around you can not avoid historic surroundings, you can not avoid the marvels, you can not fail to walk those same roads used by the ancient ancestors.
