Notes on Lazio
It goes without saying that Rome is the place to visit numero uno in the Lazio region, and most travellers do not have time nor energy to consider a daytrip out of the city. Those who do will discover a rich history dating back to the Etruscans. There are lots of ancient Roman sites. Homeric epics. Villas, gardens and monasteries. And World War II battle fields.
In addition Lazio has a diversified landscape with green hills and small mountains. Marshy flatlands. Cool refreshing lakes. Impressive waterfalls. Charmingly quaint towns and villages. And a beautiful western coast with wide open beaches, secret sandy coves, tiny fishing harbours, alluring beach cliffs and showy seaside promenades. There is so much to experience that one visit is not even remotely enough for seeing everything this region has to offer.
This is our collection of notes on Lazio and Rome with suggestions on where to go, what to see and how to sample the best food in the region.
