weddings in Lazio Region of Italy, wedding venues locations
Lazio is known by tourists as the region of Rome, but Lazio has other attractions, including the the Castelli Romani, Rieti, where you can visit St. Francis' tiny monasteries, Frescati, where you drink refreshing wine and escape the heat of Rome in summer, and evocative Etruscan ruins, not to mentions spas and beaches. You could spend a month in Lazio and not see it all.
Lazio offers a rich cultural, architectural and spiritual heritage with a great number of beautiful sights found in all of its provinces. Lazio's sprawling old castle walls and pavements of stone echo historic and religious chronicles, and the wide variety of landscapes and scenery provides the traveller with a good flavour of Italy's many facets.
In addition to the various ancient monuments, ruins, and archaeological sites, one of Lazio's wonders is seen through its authentic, traditional cuisine.
Art and Culture
Rome, the capital of the Roman Empire, the center of Christianity and capital of Italy. No further presentation necessary. Leaving the capital, every area of Lazio has its own distinguishing feature. To the north the province of Viterbo, called Tuscia, preserves the richest cultural and archaeological heritage in Italy. The region is scattered with Etruscan necropolises, medieval villages, castles and splendid Renaissance villas. Viterbo is the best preserved medieval city in Lazio, while the surrounding area is composed of picturesque countryside and wilderness. The Etruscan cities of Tarquinia, Cerveteri and Tuscania and their incredible necropolises are not to be missed. Among the villas, we recommend you visit Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola and the “Park of Monsters” in Bomarzo.
East of Rome one finds unmissable Tivoli, the preferred thermal spring of the ancient Romans, where one finds the impressive ruins of Hadrian’s Villa and the Renaissance residence of Villa d’Este.
The south-east of the capital extends over the fascinating region of Ciociaria: its wild landscape hosts beautiful medieval cities of pre-Roman origin, such as Anagni, Alatri and Ferentino famous for imposing walls, or one can take the charming religious itinerary among the ancient abbeys of Subiaco, Casamari, Montecassino and Fossanova. Another interesting tour around the mountains of Lazio will lead you to Rieti, a city full of medieval testimonies enclosed by its perfectly preserved great, long walls
Lazio contains 4,491 km2 (1,734 sq mi) of mountains (montagna), 9,291 km2 (3,587 sq mi) of hills (collina) and 3,424 km2 (1,322 sq mi) of plains (pianura). The term plains in this context refers to coastal land of mean elevation zero, some a few feet above and some a few feet below sea level. Inland of the coastal plains in the north is a landform termed the hills, or colli, which are intermediate to the mountains. Generally they are subsumed under the name of the Roman Campagna. It does not exist in the south. Inland of the hills or the coastal zone are the mountains.
