Rome and Latium
We're not going to talk about Rome.
The immense cultural and artistic patrimony offered by Rome can't be described...there are too many sites to be visited, too many people to meet, to many feelings to be experienced...you have to go there, and try it yourself!
Don't forget to rely on Eliotropica for any advice: we will be happy to help you planning your trip and make your stay unforgettable! We would rather tell you some picks about Latium...
Located between the Apennines and the Tyrrhenian Sea, Latium is an area with a variegated landscape, characterized by volcanic lakes, mountains, vineyards, and olive orchards.
Rome dominates the region, separating the forested hills of the north - and its splendid archaeological sites like Cerveteri and Tarquinia - from the southern area with its famous beaches, including Gaeta and Sabaudia, located near the National Park of the Circeo.
Those who love the magic atmosphere of places where times seems to have stood still, can choose between dozens of ancient castles, medieval towns, noble residence, churches and abbeys scattered throughout the provinces of Rome, Latina, Viterbo, Rieti, Frosinone.
The whole region is an ideal place for an holiday or a weekend in the midst of a natural scenary, due to its numerous green oases, lakes, hills and even mountains, excellent practice walls for free-climbing enthusiasts.
Eliotropica will suggest you customized tours in which anyone who loves sport will have the chance to go canoeing, sailing, biking, trekking, horse riding or free climbing.
Latium offers also the opportunity to practice winter sports: Livata, Terminillo, Campo Staffi are among the nicest sky spots of center Italy Among the thermal towns, Fiuggi and Tivoli are famous, not expensive and convenient, just half an hour away from Rome.
ISLAND OF PONZA
Set on that beautiful coastline is also Ponza, the biggest island in the Ponza archipelago. Thanks to its vulcanic origin, and the iodine-rich breeze rising from the crystal clear sea, Ponza has a particularly healthy climate. The shores are mainly rocky and made up of tufa cliffs, with caves, creeks and steep, offshore crags, bays and little beaches. The largest village of Ponza is laid out like an amphitheatre around the port, and is the island's main tourist and seaside resort.
