This is the cradle of occidental civilization and Christian culture, of lakes and legends, of spas and history, of ancient roads and verdant hills. Latium is a region of central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea, furrowed by the waters of River Tiber and mainly characterized by hills and mountains, while it slopes down near the coast. This region has different yet complementary features, unblemished sceneries and spectacular horizons among the towns. Visitors can enjoy incredibly beautiful views, like Villa Borghese in Rome, the Italian capital. Villa Borghese is the most famous city park for walking or cycling in. It represents an unparalleled experience between art, containing the Borghese Gallery with its masterpieces, and the nature surrounding it, among lakes and ancient trees. Latium is also full of spas, whose history is bound to the several thermal water springs that had great success in the Republican Age and continued to be used in the Imperial Age. The Romans built sumptuous thermal baths and we can still admire their vestiges around the territory; first of all, the Terme di Caracalla, in the heart of Rome. Tivoli is another spa, but its fame is mainly due to the artistic beauties it contains, like Villa D'Este, with its splendid fountains, gardens and magnificent palace of the Renaissance, and Villa Adriana, the ancient residence of emperor Adriano. The two villas are in the World Heritage List by Unesco. For those who prefer the sea, this region offers some real pearls like Gaeta, Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo, Sperlonga and the islands of Ponza and Ventotene, while those who love lakes will enjoy Bracciano, an enchanting stretch of water encircled by the intense green of the surrounding nature, overlooked by a magnificent sixteenth century castle.
