Lazio, the cradle of Western civilization and Christian culture, offers varied landscapes. The region is known for the Lake of Bolsena, Etruscan sites and Roman archaeological sites, the Castelli Romani villages, the villas d'Este and Adriana of Tivoli.

In southern Lazio and accessible by boat, the Pontine islands with clear waters and picturesque fishing villages offer breathtaking natural beauty. Kept well away from the pulse of mass tourism, the regions of Abruzzo and Molise whom historic and cultural heritage, biodiversity and unspoiled nature, handcrafts, enogastronomic traditions, contrasting landscapes will appeal to travelers looking for peace and authenticity.
Moving, nostalgic, unique, welcoming, coloured, nonchalant, animated are some of the many words that characterise the eternal city. Rome, an open-air museum, must be appreciated strolling along the yellow, pink and ochre facades of the historic centre, penetrating into the labyrinth of alleys to discover fountains, baroque churches, palaces from the Renaissance and the ruins of the ancient town. At lunchtime, the scent of pancetta and garlic slightly fried in olive oil will remind you that it is time for a gastronomic halt, because in this city one must take the time to live...
