The western coast of Italy, peering off into the Tyrrhenian sea in the direction of sunny Elba and Corsica, is home to some of Italy’s most breathtaking, deep blue coastline. It is also one of the most historically intense regions of Italy, and home to Rome. It was a mixing ground for Etruscans and often attacked by the Saracens, and the archaeological artefacts left behind tell a fascinating tale of multiple conquests and cultural confluence. Certainly Latium, known by Italians as Lazio, played no small role in shaping the Italian identity. Rome is a fascinating city with boundless opportunities for exploration, with a wealth of holiday accomodation in historic holiday apartments Rome. A villa Lazio or a holiday home Lazio is a splendid place to stay. Often tourists visiting Latium are so enamored by it that they miss a chance to fully take in the intriguing beauty of the surrounding countryside. The beaches in Lazio, for one, sparkle in the hot, midday sun and savvy worshipers of the golden orb spend hours leisurely soaking in the warm rays. Spend a couple hours here and you, too, will understand why this was such a coveted coastline for invaders. Yellow sand beaches that softly caress your face as you fall asleep in the sun accentuate the regal tranquility which many cultures have enjoyed for thousands of millennia.
Holiday destinations in Latium include the famous Tivoli, which is just a stone’s throw away from Rome. Tivoli epitomizes old-world charm. After all, the saying “they didn’t build Rome in a day” applies here as well. This was no overnight barn-raising of a resort town, but rather, like an ancient cathedral, something that took centuries to fine-tune. Check out, for instance, Hadrian’s Villa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back nearly 2,000 years. True to its name, the Emperor Hadrian was the first to summer here. At his perusal were well-stacked libraries, colorful floral gardens, an amphitheatre and a series of Roman baths. Take a leaf from his book, and lounge in a holiday villa nearby. The Villa D’Este (literally, “Villa to the East”, namely to the east of Rome, the city to which, as we know, all roads lead). This combines medieval ruins with modern hospitality and it will, literally, take your breath away. Converted from a Benedictine Monastery in the mid 1500’s, the overflowing verdant, floral walkways, steamy spas, cool shade and intense sense of relaxation will overwhelm you.
