is situated in the central part of Italy, on the western side and is bounded
to the rest of Italy by a mountain chain that contains many interesting
mountain groups with volcanic heritage that has been the origin of many
beautiful lakes like Bolsena and Bracciano. The flat land of the region
is divided into two parts; Maremma and Campagna Romana. The 300 km long
coast is low, mixed with sandy beaches, deep bays and mountain capes. The
climate is mostly mild, except in the mountain areas where it often is hot
in the summer, but cold during the winter.
All time ages and historical eras are represented in Lazio through prehistoric evidence such as roads, bridges, aqueducts, monuments, palaces, churches, towers, boxes, countless paintings and art pieces.
