Just south of Tuscany, the central region of Lazio shares borders with six neighbors as well as the Tyrrhenian (Mediterranean) Sea. Called Latium in English, it is Italy’s second largest economy (after Lombardy) and second most populous region (after Campania), both of which make sense since it is home to the country’s bustling capital of Rome.
About the Lazio Region
Lazio offers a variety of landscapes from the Maremma Laziale (the continuation of the Tuscan Maremma) in the north, to the flatlands of Agro Pontino in the south, and the alluvial plains around Rome. The western Tyrrhenian coast faces the Pontine Islands, an archipelago named for the largest island, Ponza, while the east features the volcanic lakes of Bracciano, Bolsena and Vico. The preapennine hills of Colli Albani and the Aurunci Mountains offer other distinctive landscapes.
