Lazio – the perfect blend of nature and ancient treasures
Situated in the central peninsular section, it’s one of the 20 administrative regions of Italy. Facing the Tyrrhenian Sea, the province enjoys a Mediterranean climate on the coast and a continental one further inland.
Long before the birth of Rome, this territory was called Latium by its inhabitants, the latins. Its name derives from Latin Latus, which means extended – it is a vast territory with plains, hills and mountains.
This region is known as the center of world history, the home to Italy’s capital city, Rome. Lazio is much larger than its famous capital city, where long before Romulus and Remus were mythically born, the Etruscans and Sabines lived.
How to get in Latium
Lazio is the third most populated region of Italy and has the second largest economy of the nation. Its capital is Rome, capital and largest city of Italy.
Rome’s two international airports are Fiumicino Airport (FCO), often referred to as Airport Leonardo da Vinci, or simply Leonardo da Vinci and Ciampino Airport (CIA). Both receive direct services from the UK.
Best time to visit Lazio
The best times to go are May, June or September through October. November and December are likely to have the most precipitation. Summer in Rome can be stiffing, although Rome is likely to be as empty in August as you’ve ever seen it. Italians prefer late September into October for their Roman Holiday.
