Welcome to Lazio
Its epic capital needs no introduction. Rome has been mesmerising travellers for millennia and still today it casts a powerful spell. Its romantic cityscape, piled high with martial ruins and iconic monuments, is achingly beautiful, and its museums and basilicas showcase some of the world’s most celebrated masterpieces.
But beyond the city, Lazio more than holds its own. Cerveteri and Tarquinia’s Etruscan tombs, Hadrian’s vast Tivoli estate, the remarkable ruins of Ostia Antica – these are sights to rival anything in the country.
Nature has contributed too, and the region boasts pockets of great natural beauty – lakes surrounded by lush green hills, wooded Apennine peaks and endless sandy beaches. Add fabulous food and wine and you have the perfect recipe for a trip to remember.
