Holiday Rentals in Lazio and Apartments by Holiday Lettings

Why Lazio?

Lazio is the epicentre of Roman and Renaissance culture in Italy: fine art, rich history and unique attractions await under the Mediterranean sun. Lazio’s capital, Rome, could take weeks to explore by itself - it’s the Eternal City, after all. But to truly experience Lazio, you must make time to explore the idyllic Italian countryside.

Ancient Wonders

As the heart of the Roman Empire, Lazio hides countless cultural relics. The Colosseum is nearly 2,000 years old, and remains the largest amphitheatre ever built. Parts of the Roman Forum are older still. The Pantheon, meanwhile, is the best preserved of any Roman building - it’s still used today!

Two Great Cities

Nestled within Rome itself is the astonishing Vatican City. The seat of the Holy See, it’s a sovereign state in its own right and filled with artistic, architectural and religious wonders. The masterworks of Raphael, Michelangelo and Da Vinci are just some of the treasures housed here.

Quintessential Countryside

Imagine lazy afternoons in Mediterranean heat, wandering among rolling vineyards and olive groves. It’s all waiting for you in rural Lazio. If you tire of fine food, wineries and quiet contemplation, you could detour to Civita di Bagnoregio - an ancient Etruscan town perched on a volcanic plateau. There’s no better view in Lazio

Places to stay in Lazio

Places to visit in Lazio

Rome

Rome, the Eternal City: seat of empires and religions, and the cultural capital of Renaissance Europe. A stay in Rome puts you at the heart of Italy’s most frenetic and thrilling city. Stroll to the Colosseum or pop into the Pantheon - they’re yours to experience.

Province of Latina

Holiday rentals and apartments in Lazio offer the perfect base from which to explore wild Latina. Just off the coast, the island of Palmarola is a paradise of hidden coves, caves and crystal clear water. For a challenge, you could even try scaling Monte Semprevisa. Your reward is a truly remarkable vista.

Province of Viterbo

An ancient city and commune 50 miles north of Rome, Viterbo has more than a few historic gems of its own. The Papal Palace served as the seat of the Papacy from 1257 to 1281. To really immerse yourself in tradition, however, you’ll want to take a dip in the Bagnaccio hot springs.

Province of Rome

Outside the metropolitan centre you can enjoy many of Rome’s best attractions rather more calmly. Hadrian’s Villa, a short distance from Tivoli, is a remarkable ruin dating to the 2nd century AD. It was originally a country retreat for Emperor Hadrian, who also wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital.
