If you choose to vacation in the Lazio region of Italy, you can visit the place where gladiators fought to the death, or hike in a forest, relax on a beach or even ski in the mountains. Lazio boasts vast rural spaces, ancient Roman palaces, and medieval towns that spill out of its hills. The region surrounds the Tyrrhenian Sea and is full of historical gems, as well as snow-capped mountains, forests, and coastal towns.
Lazio was the cradle of the Roman Empire. It all began in Rome, the Eternal City. This capital city boasts a rich combination of architectural styles that includes some of the most famous buildings in the world. Tours to Rome allow you to visit the Colosseum, the Pantheon, St. Angelo's Castle, and the remains of the churches, arches, and basilicas of the Roman Forum. You can also see St. Peter's Square and the Vatican, the epicenter of the Catholic religion.
Bomarzo, or the park of monsters, has the attraction of immersing us in a special and different place. In this village, the statues with grotesque shapes convey the pain that the hunchback prince may have suffered when he had them erected after the death of his beloved.
The excursion to Tivoli should enter our travel agenda, among other things for the monumental villas, highlighting the Villa d'Este, a small Versailles with a display of fountains and Renaissance gardens. And without leaving Tivoli, it is worth visiting Villa Adriana, which was the villa of Emperor Hadrian.
The coast of Lazio is bathed by the Tyrrhenian Sea. Ostia is the exit to the sea from Rome and a good place to start the archaeological route that will take us to Rome. The most popular beaches and summer resorts are Gaeta, Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo, Sperlonga and the Pontine Islands.
Lazio is as if they had taken a handful of stone houses, castles, or walls and thrown them randomly on its hills, plains, mountains, etc. Everything is green, irregular, wonderful. And there's a good chance you'll fall in love with more than one of its 300 villages, such as Civita di Bagnoregio, the clifftop village of Calcata, or the town of Gaeta, with its castle looming over the sea.
