This is the region around Rome, the metropolis and capital of Italy, an ancient city with a global impact....

Crossed by the Tiber River and lapped by the sea, its historical role has made it one of the cradles of western civilisation. Around the city of Rome, vestiges and necropolises from the Etruscan period will take visitors to the heart of antiquity. Latium was successively the capital region of the Etruscans, of the Roman Empire and of the Papal States. The region is also home to many lakes, thermal baths and springs that have long played a crucial social and economic role.
