Lazio: land of the Etruscans and
The tranquillity and unique natural scenery around Lake Bolsena are still a real insider tip even among Italy enthusiasts. Its many small towns with twisting alleyways and old houses, picturesque market squares and the typically Italian bars, where you can get a caffè during the day and an aperitivo in the evening, are so inviting. This is especially the case because this region – away from the touristy hotspots – has maintained its authenticity as nowhere else has.
About an hour’s drive from Rome, you have genuine natural beauty in front of you with Lake Bolsena surrounded by hilly Mediterranean scenery. It’s the perfect place to be active and enjoy yourself. There are various water sports options and plenty of hiking trails around the lake. You can then relax in any of our charming fish restaurants around the shore.
Lazio is a very historic place. Not only because you’ll find many examples of medieval and Roman architecture, but the Etruscans from pre-Roman times exerted a particularly strong influence on the region. Many archaeological excavations testify to Lazio’s rich Etruscan culture with mosaics, frescoes and colourfully painted burial chambers or artistic artefacts with winged horses or other mythical creatures.
Lazio’s variety has something for everyone. If you’d like to experience it yourself, you find out more about our holiday apartments here.
