The Lazio area guide

Things to do

You’ve probably heard of Rome. The epicentre of the Ancient Roman Empire and home to a collection of fascinating artefacts detailing its rule. With such a majestic story to tell, it’s hardly surprising that towns or villages situated elsewhere in Lazio – the administrative region of Italy to which Rome belongs – typically goes unnoticed. But if you were to venture away from the historic capital, a wealth of gems long to be discovered.

From villages overlooking volcanic lakes, to seaside towns perfectly positioned on a rocky outcrop, Lazio boasts some of Italy’s most beautiful communes. Like Rome, these communes also boast some spectacular sights to behold, ones that span back millenniums. The archaeological site of Ostia Antica, the town of Bracciano and ancient Etruscan communes like Tarquinia are so well-preserved, they often mesmerize and enthral those who set their eyes upon it.

Volcanic ranges such as the Alban Hills further captivate visitors. Its fertile plains can often be found covered in crops and olive groves. The Alban Hills are, in fact, famed for harbouring humble wine-producing villages and towns. The town of Frascati is most celebrated for its dry white wine, whereas Castel Gandolfo is most prized for its mesmerizing view of Lake Albano – one of the two crater lakes on the Alban Hills.

And for those with a penchant for the sea, a scattering of golden beaches and picturesque communes can be found along the west coast. The town of Terracina boasts medieval architecture and gorgeous villas that overlook the stunning Tyrrhenian Sea. If you’re looking for a place that’s undisturbed, naturally beautiful and historically rich – Lazio is your perfect bet!

Places to eat

Italian cuisine, as most people already know, is sublime. Simple pasta dishes, crispy, flavoursome pizzas and intoxicating local delicacies have locals and visitors yearning for more.

To cater for these patrons, a fascinating medley of street vendors, family-run trattorias (Italian-style eateries), charming diners and restaurants of a more international persuasion can be found scattered across the region, but most predominantly in Rome. Wherever you decide to go, the offerings are sure not to disappoint. Trattoria der Pallaro in Rome is always bustling with hungry customers. Outside of Rome, La Nostra Paranza in Anzio delicately prepares fresh seafood dishes that are sure to hit the spot!

Complementing these fine meals are equally fine glasses of chilled wine. The wines of Castelli Romani, for one, are the perfect accompaniment to hearty meals!

Shopping

Rome, as the nation’s capital and one of its most frequented cities, is naturally a dazzling shopping mecca. Whether you’re after luxurious goods or bargain finds, antiques or the latest homeware, you’ll find it here.

In Piazza di Spagna, the historic streets are home to exclusive and high-end designers, whereas Via del Corso, Via del Tritone, Pantheon and Campo dei Fiori are ideal for those seeking goods on a shoestring budget.

However, the best way to shop and bag yourself unique treasures is by visiting one of the many open-air markets. One of the most famed throughout Europe is one situated on Porta Portese and takes place every last Sunday of the month. This colourful market in Rome sells all manner of quirky items and are particularly great if you have a knack for haggling!

Getting there & around

The region is only served by two airports - Rome Fiumicino and Rome Ciampino Airport - and both are situated 30 minutes away from the illustrious capital. Buses, taxis and private transport transfer locals and visitors to and fro on a daily basis.

From Rome, the bus or rail service can be relied on to get to the major towns and cities. Though the best way to explore a city, town or village is on foot or bike. This method is the most freeing way to discover the highlights of this Italian haven. However, to get to the more rural destinations, a car must be used – investing in one is therefore highly recommended!
