Introducing Lazio

The region of Lazio divides northern and southern Italy and includes the country’s incomparable capital city, Rome. The Eternal City has more “must-see” sights than could possibly be experienced in one visit; from ancient ruins to Renaissance art and baroque architecture, there are enough historic and artistic treasures to make your head spin. Best of all, seeing the sights is as simple – and thrilling – as simply strolling the cobblestone streets, allowing yourself to stumble upon one masterpiece after another. Rome is simultaneously an open-air museum and a bustling modern city, and it’s this fascinating duality that draws visitors back again and again. 

Though Rome tends to steal the spotlight, Lazio is much more than its capital city. In the countryside surrounding Rome you’ll find perfectly preserved hilltop villages like Civita di Bagnoregio, a town founded over 2,500 years ago that now teeters atop a plateau, as well as first-rate ski resorts and thermal spas located on natural hot springs. Lazio also has a beautiful coastline with charming beach towns like Terracina and Sperlonga, where Roman ruins exist alongside the bright blue Tyrrhenian Sea.

Expert Tips

“Among the many museums in Rome, I always love to go back to the Ara Pacis Museum, which is walking distance from most of our residences and pretty quick to visit. The Ara Pacis is the altar dedicated the Roman goddess of Peace built in honor of Emperor Augustus in 9 B.C. An impressive Richard Meier architectural masterpiece houses the altar and the museum complex.”  Margherita, Managing Director, Italy Division

“Some of my favorite restaurants and cafes in Rome are La Buca di Ripetta, good for a typical Roman cuisine and atmosphere, Ginger, a lively spot with fresh, healthy cuisine, Caffe Greco in Via Condotti, one of the oldest cafes in Rome, and Babbington Tea Room, an institution since 1893 – they have the best iced tea ever.  I would also recommend a day trip to the town of Tivoli, about a 40-minute drive from Rome, to see its famous villas.”  Saffo, Managing Director, Italy Division
