They say that all roads lead to Rome and in the region of Lazio this is definitely the case. The Italian capital is a melting pot of attractions and a city which is guaranteed to excite all senses. Here are just some of the highlights.

 UNESCO World Heritage sites

Explore the historic centre of Rome and the Properties of the Holy See and San Paolo Fuori le Mura; visit the Renaissance Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este (Tivoli); discover the Etruscan Necropolises of Cerveteri and Tarquinia.

The Sistine Chapel

Painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, the chapel is a work of high Renaissance art. The complex design demonstrates Michelangelo’s great skill in creating a huge variety of poses for the human figure.

Montecassino Abbey

Founded by St. Benedict in 529, this Benedictine Abbey was the site of the Battle of Monte Cassino in 1944, where the building was destroyed by Allied bombing and rebuilt after the war. The Abbey and the Polish war cemetery are worth the visit.

Shopping

One of the most popular shopping areas is the Via del Corso and the streets that radiate from it. Alternatively, Via Cola di Rienzo in the Prati neighbourhood, north of the Vatican has a similar assortment of stores but far fewer tourists.

Il Bagnaccio hot springs

Bathe in pools that have been carved out of white clay in a bucolic landscape that remains unchanged since Etruscan times. Located 6km north of Viterbo.

Monte Rufeno Nature Reserve

This fertile Nature Reserve covers more than 7,000 acres of rolling oak forest on the borders of Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. Explore this rural landscape of wild boar and porcupine that offers many walking, biking and riding trails.
