Rome Surrounding Area Holidays
Rome, the capital city at the heart of the Lazio region, is an impressive place to visit, with stunning architecture and a bustling atmosphere. If you want to discover more of the region, step outside the city centre and you'll find one of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe, rich in culture and history. Exploring the surrounding areas of Rome is simply a must during a holiday to Italy's capital.
Attractions surrounding Rome
Just to the east of Rome, the picturesque hilltop town of Tivoli is one of the most popular destinations for holidays in Lazio. Famously, it is home to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Villa d’Este and Villa Adriana. The former's stunning High Renaissance garden is world-renowned, whilst the latter is an astonishing summer residence built by the Emperor Hadrian, which even by Roman standards was considered lavish!
Some 28 miles north of Rome is the ancient Etruscan settlement of Cerveteri, a must-see attraction for any holiday to Lazio. Often referred to as the ‘city of the dead’, these enigmatic ruins have a rather haunting quality, and although much is still to be excavated, you could spend hours getting lost amongst the eerie remnants of a lost civilisation. The highlights include the Necropolis and the Tomba Bella, Tomb of Reliefs. Many archaeological relics are housed at the nearby Museo Nazionale Cerite , although the greater collection is in the Villa Giulia in Rome.
Once the greatest of all Roman roads, the Appian Way, otherwise known as the “Queen of Roads”, led all the way from Rome to the seaport of Brindisi on the eastern tip of Italy, a staggering 362 miles. The segment on the outskirts of Rome is home to the Appian Catacombs, where persecuted Christians once buried their dead. A short walk away from the tunnels is the equally impressive Tomb of Cecilia Metella, making the area ideal for explorers and history buffs.
The town of Frascati is well loved by Romans and tourists alike, and provides a great day trip for those on a city break in and around Rome. A beautiful and historic hilltop town, Frascati is perhaps best known for the wine it has produced for over two millennia. The main square, Piazza Marconi, is lined with traditional alfresco restaurants, and a more pleasant venue for lunch could hardly be imagined. Don’t forget to pick up a bottle or two from one of the town’s many wine shops.
