Lazio Vacations

Lazio, also known as Latium, is located on the west coast of Italy facing the Tyrrhenian Sea and it includes the capital of Italy, Rome. The provinces within Lazio are Rome, Rieti, Latina, Viterbo and Frosinone. The city of Rome is considered to be one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in Europe with it's origins dating back to 750 BC. And Rome's culture and history is the prime reason that tourists are drawn to the Lazio Region. Lazio was also considered part of the Papal states and was governed by the Vatican until 1860. The largest park and lake in the area is Lake Bracciano which has a volcanic origin and is located 20 miles northwest of Rome. Lake Bracciano is one of the cleanest lakes in Italy because no motorized boats are allowed on the lake. Within the Latina Region is Parco Nazionale del Circeo, that is a national park that extends from the coast to the mountainous interior.
