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.

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.
