As the well-known proverb says - all roads lead to Rome. And it is not only about the mere fact of moving, but also about the constant desire to return to the city that has captivated tourists from all over the world traveling to Italy for decades. Rome, which is the capital of the Lazio region and the country itself, is the most important and the most popular point on its map - full of monuments that are worth seeing at least once in a lifetime. What you must see during your stay in the Eternal City? What places in the region should you visit by the way? Where to stay when traveling to Italy?

Visiting the capital of Lazio

In the Eternal City there are… eternal traffic jams. So the best way to visit Rome is to walk. Fortunately, the greatest attractions are located a short distance from each other. Where to start? Of course, from the Colosseum , which is the symbol of the capital. In the past, it was an arena of gladiator fights with animals. To this day, it is one of the largest ancient buildings, which impresses with its size and majesty. In 2007, it was recognized as one of the seven new wonders of the world. The Trevi Fountain is another must-see when visiting Lazio . As the story goes, whoever throws a small coin into the baroque fountain will return to the city in the future. We recommend watching it in the evening, when it is beautifully lit and the crowds of tourists are smaller than during the day. Another place worth seeing is the Spanish Square , whose characteristic point is the famous staircase - the widest and longest in Europe. Then you can go to the Vatican - the smallest country in the world. Be sure to check out St. Peter , which is the second largest church in the world and the Sistine Chapel , where you will find outstanding frescoes by Michelangelo, including the famous "Creation of Adam". Also go to one of the favorite places - both among Romans and tourists. We are talking about Piazza Navona , the square with the baroque Fountain of the Four Rivers . For art lovers, we recommend a visit to Galleria Spada and Galleria Borghese , which are home to works by artists such as Caravaggio, Rubens and Titian.

Information about the region

Lazio is a region located in central-western Italy, stretching from the Apennines to the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is directly adjacent to Tuscany, Umbria, Abrazia, Campania, Molise and Marche. It is a very diverse area - during your vacation in Italy, you will see olive groves, lowlands, mountainous areas, as well as a rocky coast. The most important industries are mechanical, tobacco and food. The economy is largely based on tourism. No wonder - Rome has been attracting millions of tourists to this region for years, driving the economy. It is worth emphasizing, however, that Lazio is not only a stunning capital city, but also other attractions in the area. During your vacation in Rome , it is worth seeing them. Cities like Latina, Rieti and Viterbo await you - especially the thermal baths below. A good idea will also be a trip to the Monte Cassino Monastery, where there is a cemetery of Polish soldiers who died there in 1994 in the so-called Battle of Rome.

Campsites in Rome

For those who are going camping in Rome , we recommend staying at the Camping Village Roma . According to El Mundo magazine, it is the best facility of its kind in the world classification for low cost. There are dedicated pitches for vehicles, as well as cottages and bungalows for rent. There is also a swimming pool, a guarded swimming pool and a volleyball court. Among the amenities you will also find restaurants with excellent Italian cuisine. There is a playground for children, a trampoline and the care of animators. The campsite provides internet access and an ATM. Rome is also not far from there - it only takes 15 minutes to get from the campsite to the center of the capital.

I like closer and longer journeys - with an analog camera and a great appetite, because I always like to get to know the local cuisine during the trip. My favorite region in Europe is the Balkans, especially Montenegro, Albania and Bosnia with Herzegovina, which I have visited several times. I dream of returning to beautiful and unpredictable Iceland. I am currently in Southeast Asia.
