Italy’s capital is the stuff of ‘bucket lists’. Books, blogs, films, and songs celebrate the ‘Eternal City’, and most of Europe was once ruled from here. The remains of Ancient Rome are a major draw, of course. The city rediscovered its glory days during the Renaissance, and for those on a Rome holiday the art amassed by powerful Popes is displayed in the Vatican City. Rural Lazio—sometimes also called ‘Latium’ in English—has a quieter side: Bolsena and Vico offer lakeside relaxation ideal for a Lazio villa, there’s walking in the Sabine Hills, and beach resorts in southern Lazio have been popular since Roman emperors fancied some sea air.
