The many beautiful corners of the central Italian region of Lazio are often overlooked because of the country’s historical capital city that dominates it. Rome, the capital of Lazio and Italy and the focal point of the historic Roman Empire, has as many modern and fun activities to offer as it does history, art and culture. Rome is indeed a wonderful place to visit, however, it is not the only place in Lazio worth exploring. The coast of Lazio is lined with sandy beaches and seaside towns like Santa Marinella and Terracina and Roman Campagna, which literally, means Roman countryside, offers breath taking panoramic views. Apartments in Lazio can offer holiday makers both the ideal spot for a suburban or country retreat.
Holiday in Lazio
With history everywhere, it’s hard to pick the best spot to hire a holiday villa in Lazio. Should you choose to be based in Rome you have a city full of iconic sights on your doorstep – the Vatican, the Collosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps - but also spend some time in Rome’s suburbs to find out where the local young professionals eat and drink Trastevere, to shop until you drop in Prati or to enjoy the open, green spaces of Monteverde. Outside of Rome you’ll find more history and beauty to surround yourself with. The little known Castello di Proceno is a medieval castle village balanced on top of a small mountain and at the northern border of the region is the Monte Rufeno nature reserve which should satisfy the most eager of walkers. Often regarded as comparable to the northern Italian lakes, Lazio’s Lakes Bolsena and Bracciano are still relatively undiscovered. The ancient city of Viterbo offers many 12th and 13th century buildings to admire, all enclosed in the city’s original medieval walls and just down the road is Il Bagnaccio, a natural hot spring pool carved out in the clay, which has been enjoyed by locals and visitors alike for centuries.
