This region is located in central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea, but all the territory of Lazio in interested by another source of water, in this case a river water of Tevere River. To remember also the presence of two important lakes in Lazio: Bolsena Lake and Lake of Bracciano.

In the region there are many stunning landscapes, pristine natural scenery and exciting horizons far away from urban centers, that here in Lazio are several.

The main cities are: Roma of course, the city symbol of Italy, the city of Culture, Art and History, but also of Business, Government and Power, without forgetting the Pope and the influence of the Catholic Church.

Lazio means also SPA and THERMAL resort. Thanks to the healing properties of local sources, they are in great demand since the Roman era (as Republican and Imperial) and present days. The Romans built magnificent thermal baths around the region, such as the Baths of Caracalla in Rome (Terme di Caracalla) and many others.

Its fame is associated with such a monumental villa as Villa d'Este, characterized by beautiful fountains, gardens and magnificent Renaissance palaces and Villa Adriana, the residence of the Emperor Hadrian. Both villas have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
