Lazio

Things to do - general

Lazio is one of the twenty regions located in central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea,traverse by the waters of the Tiber River and mainly characterized by hills and mountains, while it slopes down near the coast.
It encompasses the provinces of Frosinone, Latina, Rieti, Roma, and Viterbo.
The Italian word Lazio descends from the Latin word Latium, Its capital is Rome, capital and largest city of Italy and is also the historic capital of the Roman Empire and later of the Christian culture.
The smallest city state in the world, the Vatican, a landlocked sovereign city state is located within the city of Rome. There are four UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Lazio, one of them being the entire historic center of Rome (including the Vatican). The other three are the Etruscan necropolises of Tarquinia and Cerveteri, the Villa Adriana at Tivoli, and the Villa d’Este at Tivoli.
The villages of Lazio are small urban settlements that arose as strategic defenses along ancient roads, often positioned high on rocky outcrops. Surrounded by ancient stone walls, these villages appear as if still living in the Middle Ages, offering visitors a multifaceted Lazio with all its unique nature and charm. The region of Lazio is rich in history and natural beauty with many traces left by the Etruscans, Romans and successive populations.

Culture and history image

Culture and history info

The early Romans adopted culture from their neighbors, the Greeks and Etruscans, in particular, but imprinted their unique stamp on their borrowings. They have only one abiding motive – greed, deep-seated, for empire and riches.
Rome came under Greek influence very early in the eight century BCE, when Greek colonies were established in southern Italy and Sicily.
It is important to get an understanding of how Greek culture influenced Roman society as well. The reason why influences of Greek culture could be so easily found in Rome was because the Romans had admired Greek culture.
The Ancient Romans had their own system of beliefs based on dozens of gods and goddesses, each of them with a particular thing or group of people they were responsible for. So Mars was the god of war, Venus the god of love, Neptune the god of the sea, Juno watched over the women of Rome and so on. A complex web of myths and legends was woven around these deities.
