The cradle of occidental civilization and Christian culture, of lakes and legends, of spas and history, of ancient roads and verdant hills. This is Lazio, a region of central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea, furrowed by the waters of River Tiber and mainly characterized by hills and mountains, while it slopes down near the coast. This region has different yet complementary features, unblemished sceneries and spectacular horizons among the towns.our villas in Lazio ›
The coast of Lazio between Terracina and Gaeta, almost at the border of Campania, is what one might call a pleasant discovery. The Tyrrhenian Sea, in this middle part, offers glorious and tranquil scenery: sandy beaches and reclaimed farmlands. The landscape brightens at the Circeo headland and remains colorful for a good part of the journey towards the south, thanks to Mount Ausoni and Aurunci which separate from the Appennines and dive into the sea. The result is an astonishing mix combination of sheer cliffs and sandy inlets interrupted by ancient watchtowers. The towns and villages are heirs of Latin cities falling along the Via Appia and the Flacca – Gaeta, Sperlonga, Formia, and Terracina – all of which have exceptional archaeological heritage. To further increase the area’s splendor there is a certain environmental wholeness, thanks to the series of parks and nature reserves which detach the mountains from the marine background.
