The Lazio region
The region of Lazio, rich of culture and nature, is situated in the centre of Italy.
Hilly landscapes with olive- and vine cultivations and the lakes Bracciano and Bolzena characterizes the north of the region. The culturally heydays are the famous Etruscan excavation and the sulphur-wells, where you can spoil your skin under the open sky.
Rome is the culturally and economically center as well as the capital city of Italy, located directly in the heartland of Lazio.
Mountains are in the south, rising above 2000 meters; lower, heading the coast the gentle green slopes are overgrown with orange-and lemon trees and olive-and vine cultivations.
The coast is uneven, sandy beaches alternate rocky cliffs, suggestive little bays and hills are covered with Mediterranean spontaneous vegetation (macchia mediterranea).
Thousands of years of history signed the landscape, increasing the cultural value of this land: Excavations from the Roman and the pre-Roman time (Etruscan, Ausonia and Aurunci), medieval towns, monasteries and convents, make the stay in Lazio always an astonishing experience.
The region has many nature reserves and little protected oasis; very beautiful for short walks, hiking tours or trekking.
The Garigliano river natural park at the board with Campania offers multiple opportunities to come in contact with the lush river vegetation and the wild animals that inhabit along the banks.
Thermal springs are to find in the region of Viterbo, Tivoli and Fiuggi and in the south in Suio.
Located in the south of the region, The Pontine Islands join sensational nature, clear water, characteristic fisher towns and Roman culture. The main Island Ponza is also called pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The food and wine tradition might deserve its own chapter: fish and seafood on the coast; rustically cuisine in the countryside (meat and sausage, cheese and a lot of different vegetables), buffalo mozzarella, and olives of Gaeta are only some examples.
Lots of tasty and important wines are available for experts and curious tasters, thanks to the unique warm weather and the composition of the soil.
The area between south of Lazio and northern Campania, named Campania Felix by the ancient Roman, produces since centuries a particular wine, called Falernus, one of the many wine excellence of the area.
Itri is located in the green hills above the Gulf of Gaeta, only some driving minutes from the sea and the beautiful sandy beaches of Gaeta and Sperlonga. The little town is surrounded by olive groves and the Aurunci Mountains, which have the highest peaks up to 1500 meters. The climate is mild and Mediterranean all the year.
Swimming in the Mediterranean Sea: from the middle of April to the end of October. The average temperature in the winter time is about 16 degrees; walking along the sandy beach barefoot throughout the year. Perfect for families with children – children can plash play in the shallow water.
Worth to visit are the medieval town center with the castle Castello di Itri (open from 10 am to 1 pm and from 5 pm to 8 pm, during events until 12 pm), the medieval churches and the sanctuary Madonna della Cività, which you find on the street to Campodimele.
A day trip to Campodimele, an ancient centre in the mountains is warmly recommended. The town becomes famous because of the longevity of their residents.
During the summer month many cultural events will be organized in the castle of Itri.
Famous are the olives with the name Itrana, cultivated mainly in Itri and in the south of Lazio, which are used to produce extra virgin olive oil.
