Cheap flights to Lazio

Lazio is one of the 20 administrative regions of Italy, located in the peninsular section of the country. It is the third most populated region and the second largest economy of Italy. Lazio’s capital is Rome, which is also Italy’s capital and largest city. It is bordered by Tuscany, Umbria, and Marche to the north, Abruzzo and Molise to the east, Campania to the south, and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. Mainly composed of sandy beaches, Lazio is mostly flat and hilly but also with mountainous areas in the most eastern and southern districts.

What to see & do

Having Rome as a capital tends to leave the rest of Lazio overlooked and overshadowed. The northern part of the region is covered by hills and greenery, and its southern part craggy and parched. Needless to say, there are plenty of places to visit, with most of the tourist attractions located in the Eternal City, Rome. It also happens to be the site of some of the grandest, most magnificent, and historically important churches in the world. There’s the St Peter's Basilica, the largest church in Italy and an architectural splendour, which is also home to some of the most stunning works of art in history, including three of the country’s most celebrated masterpieces: Michelangelo’s Pietà, his breathtaking dome, and Bernini’s baldachin over the papal altar. Get lost in a sea of art when you visit Vatican Museums, home to one of the greatest art collections in the world. The historic Palatino was the most exclusive neighbourhood in Ancient Rome. You can see the ruins of the main imperial palace, as well as the Orti Farnesiani, which offers views over the Roman Forum. Tourists flock Rome just to see the impressive ruins of the Colosseum, which used to be a massive gladiatorial arena. While there are a lot of art museums in the city, make sure to check out Museo e Galleria Borghese, which exhibits paintings by Caravaggio, Botticelli, and Raphael, and sculptures by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, among others.

How to get around within Lazio

Lazio has a good railway network, with most routes going north-south via Rome. Although infrequent, bus service is also available. If you plan to get around on a car, you can drive via the main A1 toll highway (Autostrada) from Florence to Naples, which has good north-south communications. Meanwhile, A24 heads east from Rome to the mountains of the Abruzzo. There’s also A12 in northern Lazio, which follows the coast north in the direction of Pisa in Tuscany Viterbo’s main road, Cassia (and Cassia bis). Southern Lazio is served by the Pontina.

How to get there

If you are getting in by plane, you’ll most probably go through the Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport or Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport. The region is also well-served by ferries, ships, and cruises since Civitavecchia, the port of Rome, is located here. It serves as the point of arrival and departure of hundreds of ships travelling all around the Mediterranean. Lazio is accessible from Sardinia, Corsica, Sicily, Spain, France, some other small islands, and North Africa. The entire region is also easily accessible by car via the A90 ring road or GRA, from airports in Rome.
