Lazio Places And Charm, Italy
Nature around Lazio provides a wealth of variety that extends over volcanic lakes, green hills rolling to the beaches, sharp Appenine Mountains and natural parks full of unspoilt beauty.
Roman castles are located a short distance from Rome. This area extends around the two volcanic lakes of Albano and Nemi, which is not only appreciated for its natural beauty, but also for its rich historical and cultural heritage.Lazio's coastline is interesting and varied, composed of long beaches and beautiful reefs. Ostia is Rome's most popular beach and is always crowded. We recommend you take the coastal road that goes from Ostia to Anzio, passing by sand dunes and fishing huts. The most fascinating area of coastline is located to the south, the location of Circeo National Park, which is covered by the greenery of oak forests, coastal lakes and sand dunes. The park faces the marvelous archipelago of the Pontine Islands, including the famous holiday resorts of Ponza and Ventotene. Other interesting locations are Terracina, Sperlonga and Gaeta, picturesque sea-facing villages which have become attractive sea resorts.
The territory to the north of Rome is covered by woodland and includes three splendid volcanic lakes. Lake Bolsena and Lake Bracciano are bathing destinations with numerous water sports. Near Bolsena, the beautiful area of Civita di Bagnoreggio, known as “the dieing city”, is worth a visit. Lake Vico is located within a nature reserve: it is much appreciated for canoeing, hiking, cycling and horse riding tours and even bird watching.
The National Park of Gran Sasso and Laga Mountains is located near Rieti. This area offers tourists walks in the wilderness and beautiful, primeval nature, with views of rare beauty and vast panorama. This park includes the highest summit of the Apennine Mountains (2915 meters).The ancient Roman people were very aware of the concept of well-being. Lazio's volcanic origin led to the formation of a wealth of thermal baths, with the most famous in Viterbo, Tivoli and Fiuggi, one of the most important hydrotherapeutic centers in Italy.
