Chapter from Blue Guide Central Italy
by Alta Macadam
This ebook is an extract from Blue Guide Central Italy, comprising 240 pages of the text version, with superb regional maps, town maps and site plans. Includes a comprehensive historical introduction, practical information on where to eat and stay, and information about local food and wine. Lazio, the region of Italy which includes Rome, is the ancient heartland of the Etruscans, a land which enchanted D.H. Lawrence and which remains well off the beaten track today. Full of fascinating sites and monuments, home to the glorious Tivoli gardens, the Pope’s summer residence, the painted tombs of Tarquinia, the Sanctuary of Fortune at Palestrina and the war-scarred monastery of Monte Cassino, not to mention the Eternal City itself and the evocative ruins of its port city of Ostia, Lazio has something for every visitor.
