Lazio travel guide

4.5
Ruins · Fountains · Art Museums
Often overshadowed by the country's magnificent capital city, Lazio is a densely populated region in the middle of the boot-shaped Italian peninsula. Though this prosperous area is home to Rome, Lazio offers many other cities, lakes, and white-sand coastal areas as beautiful additions to your itinerary. The region's landscapes are as varied as the people who live here. In the north, Lazio is lush and hilly. The southern section features rugged areas tailor-made for adventurous hikers and cyclists. Venture deeper into Lazio's countryside to find more places to visit, like restaurants and museums, as well as remnants of the ancient civilizations that once flourished in this area.
