In the heart of Italy, Lazio is the center of the Italian political life thanks to the presence of the government and Parliament; it is the Catholic world center since there is the Vatican, and a favorite destination of tourism for the innumerable monuments of the Roman civilization and of the Etruscan civilization. There is much, much more to Lazio than just Rome! Do you like the mountains, the beach, Renaissance papal villas, wineries, Etruscan ruins, health spas or secluded Franciscan hermitages? Then schedule a few more days in this region, because it has everything you’ve been looking for. Start with a day in the Castelli Romani, right on Rome’s doorstep - we’ll tell you how you can absorb 2000 years of history without staying in the city. Just south of there, on the way to Naples, is the world-class spa town of Fiuggi. Or head east to Rieti, where you can visit the tiny monasteries St. Francis built, birthplace of the nativity scene and the Christmas tree. North of the city, within an hour’s easy drive is Fiumicino Airport. Alta Tuscia is an area between Tuscany and Umbria that once was the cradle of the ancient and mysterious Etruscan civilization. This region is rich in every interesting archaeological sites, such as the Museum of Bolsena, the tombs town of Pianezze, near Grotte di Castro or the Turona Archaeological Park near Bolsena and its volcanic lake with two islands. Rome, Caput Mundi! the Eternal City. There’s more to see here than in any other city in the world. You can not miss the newly-renovated Colosseum, the Roman Forum, St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican City, the Pantheon, the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, Piazza Navona, the Borghese Gallery, and the outdoor market at Campo de’ Fiori. In the east of Rome, is Tivoli, here you can visit Villa d’Este built in 1550, famous for its sumptuous garden, statues, monuments, and above all the great fountains. Some explain on the Vatican City: Rome is the heart of Catholicism: inside its lans is located the State of Vatican with its spectacular Saint Peter’s Basilica. The State of the Vatican City, is a landlocked enclave surrounded by the city of Rome in Italy, and the smallest independent state in the world (both in area and in population). The Vatican is the home of the Pope, and forms the territory of the Holy See, the central authority of the Roman Catholic Church.
