Volcanic lakes, mountains, ravines, vineyards and olive groves characterize Latium's landscape. Rich with archeological sites, Latium also offers skiing, swimming, and a host of watersports. Most visitors never see much more than Rome. Though that famous city is an unforgettable experience, the splendor (both man-made and natural) of the rest of the region merits both time and thorough investigation. The eruption of four different volcanoes has provided Latium with fertile soil, hot springs, marshes, and hill towns of unprecedented beauty.
