Villages and small towns in Lazio

Lazio, among the most archaic regions of Italy, owes much of its historical roots to the Tiber, the river where not only Rome and the Roman Empire developed, but also where the ancient populations gave birth to small urban centers that today we appreciate with the name of "borghi", like Castel Gandolfo or Bomarzo. From the Tyrrhenian coast, on which Nettuno and Sperlonga stand out, inland, Lazio amazes tourists with its charming villages, some of which lie incredibly on tuff hills, such as Civita di Bagnoregio and Calcata, veritable minis worlds suspended in time.
