Destination guide

Lazio – an Italian feast to remember

If Lazio were a trattoria, the menu would be the most enticing in Italy. Choose from rugged volcanic mountains studded by sleepy hill towns and their cathedrals. Follow that with a feast of Roman proportions – the mighty Colosseum, the Pantheon, imperial tombs. Add sides of Vatican treasures by masters of their craft, bearing names like da Vinci and Caravaggio. Then sample volcanic lake waters – where windsurfers whiz this way and that – and glorious Blue Flag beaches. Reserve your table with Lazio vacation rentals, which range from pool-ready hill villas to historic boltholes in Rome.

Activities

Striking lines from the bucket list in Lazio

A bucket list simply isn't a bucket list without a mention of the Eternal City. Lazio vacation rentals close to Rome are your chance to see world-famous wonders like the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Vatican Museum. Hop-on, hop-off bus routes, guided history walks and foodie tours all combine to really help you unravel that layer cake of culture. Not a city lover? No worries – Lazio also climbs to mountains and drops to volcanic lakes. You can go boating on Bolsena or strap on hiking boots in the Sabine Hills, bathe in hot springs or cycle through verdant valleys filled with vineyards.

Weather

Never an off time in Lazio

Rome's eternal draws mean that Lazio is a real year-round destination. Even when the icy winds and snows of winter come, between December and March, culture vultures flock to the region to see great sights. More come when the sun shines, though. Spring, in May, starts the rush, while the months between June and August see Lazio vacation rentals with pools and countryside views fill to bursting with families and couples.

Natural features

Lowlands to highlands in Lazio

Lazio is a huge cut-out of central Italy, wedged between Campania to the south, and Tuscany and Umbria to the north. In the west, it starts with beaches like Sperlonga, where high cliffs rise from a rolling sea. From that, the wide Campagna plain spreads out, a flat swathe of farms and towns that's carved through by the winding River Tiber and home to mighty Rome itself. Further west are the mountains. Called the Pre-Apennines, they shoot up all around the capital, soaring to over 2,000 meters and hiding cobalt-blue volcano lakes within.
