The Lazio region

WHY LAZIO?

Rome
Hadrians Villa (completed in 134 AD)
The fountains and gardens of Villa DEste
Vineyards of Frascati
Tombs of Tarquinia, founded in 12th century BC
Easy access to the cruise ship port at Civitavecchia

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 favourite 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, 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.

Rome

Local restaurants

Il Prado on Via Mameli is always buzzing, owing to great food at good prices – no need to book. Also good for a quick pitstop is Pizza Mariotti on Vicolo del Bottino. For more serious dining, on Piazza Augusto Imperatore, Gusto (+39 6 322 6273) is a restaurant, pizzeria, wine bar and bookshop all in one, good for weekend brunch or dinner. Originally a farmhouse, Casina Valadier on Piazza Bucarest (+39 6 6992 2090) is a café/restaurant with terraces, neo-classical columns and a beautiful garden. Arancia Blu, on Via dei Latini (+39 6 445 4105), is Rome's best vegetarian restaurant, a rarity in these parts. Great for lunch for omnivores, too. Il Drappo on Vicolo del Malpasso (+39 6 687 7365) is an inventive Sardinian restaurant; for pudding, try the seadas (cheese-stuffed fried cake in dark honey). Camponeschi on Piazza Farnese (+39 6 687 4927) serves some of the best fish in Rome. Get seats outdoors at Santa Lucia on Largo Febo (+39 6 6880 2427), to eat Neapolitan-leaning pasta, seafood and vegetarian dishes in a spectacular location. Reef, also on Piazza Augusto Imperatore (+39 6 6830 1430), is a popular haunt for Oriental-influenced Italian food. Boccondivino on Piazza di Campo Marzio (+39 6 6830 8626) is all modern art and 16th-century columns, and lives up to its 'divine mouthful' name.

Local bars

The terrace at Hotel Aleph on Via San Basilio is a popular summer drinking spot, as is the courtyard in the Hotel de Russie, where you'll find Stravinskj Bar on Via del Babu (+39 6 328 881). Ketumbar on Via Galvani (+39 6 5730 5338) is a restaurant/bar serving fusion cuisine, with a sleek, minimalist interior – a great base for your entire evening.

Local cafes

Bar della Pace on Via della Pace (+39 06 686 1216) is a social institution. For the aperitivo – a drink before dinner, 18h–21h, head down to Campo de'Fiori. Friends on Piazza Trilussa, and Red, the bar in the Auditorium di Santa Cecilia on Via della Conciliazione, are also good options.

Nightlife

Spago on Via Monte Testaccio is a bar/music venue/gallery space,with live music early evenings, and dancey beats later on. Supperclub on Via de'Nari is down a narrow alley, with no sign on the door, but don't be put off – it's set in a gorgeous restored third-century mansion, with drapes and plush white beds. Bloom on Via del Teatro Pace (+39 6 6880 2029) is an Italian restaurant/sushi bar that becomes a nightclub after dinner. Popular in summer, Goa on Via Libetta is a mixed/gay club that plays house, hip hop and jungle. Art Café on Via del Galoppatoio is another restaurant that turns into a club in the summer: door policy is strict, so it's worth booking a table for dinner. In winter, visit La Maison on Vicolo dei Granari.

Worth getting out of bed for

Viewpoint Piazza del Campidoglio by night, for panoramas over the Forum and the Palatine.
Arts and culture Rome's importance to Western civilisation is inscribed in its imposing historical sites: the Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Forum, St Peter's and the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel. Palazzo Doria Pamphilj is a mansion housing a gallery of 15th- to 18th-century art; Villa Borghese boasts a magnificent art collection and spectacular grounds.

Something for nothing

A stroll at sunset in the lush Pincio Gardens, above Piazza del Popolo.
Shopping Via Condotti, starting at the base of the Spanish Steps, is Rome's most prominent shopping street; Via Frattina runs parallel, along the same lines. Via del Corso sells younger styles. More interesting shopping can be found near Piazza del Popolo. On Via Nazionale, you'll find leather stores and a handful of boutiques. Via Sistina is good for small, stylish outlets. Porta Portese open-air fleamarket in Trastevere is the largest in Europe, open on Sundays from 05h until around 14h.
