Beautiful South Lazio

 

This beautiful mountainous / coastal region of SOUTH LAZIO

(within the provinces of Latina and Frosinone)

is rich in history, architecture, culture and natural beauty.

Indeed it is blessed in many ways :

 

The beautiful coastline of the Riviera Di Ulisse / Ulysses Riviera (sometimes also know as the Costa Pontina or Pontine Coast) is considered to be one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Italy.  

 

It takes its name from Greek mythology.  According to Homer's ancient work the "Odessey" and Virgil's later work the "Aeneid", the legendary Greek hero Odysseus / Ulysses, having fled from the Aegean following the fall of Troy, for 10 years navigated the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea and eventually set foot on these golden Italian shores.  

 

This picturesque Riviera Di Ulisse, with its numerous golden sandy beaches, rocky coves, hidden caves and sheltered harbours, and the pretty seaside resorts of Sperlonga, Gaeta, Formia, Terracina, San Felice Circeo and the Pontine Islands, is noted for its temperate climate, and rainless summers. The rocky cliffs are a haven for Free Climbers.

 

Yet close by are the dramatic Aurunci, and Ausoni, mountains which border the Southern Appenines and the Abruzzo National Park.  This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a diversity of landscapes:  Pretty medieval hill towns; verdant tranquil hillsides; olive groves; rivers, lakes; craggy peaks and protected nature reserves. Perfect for Bird Watchers and Lovers of Nature.

 

South Lazio is ideally positioned midway between Rome and Naples making it an ideal base for taking day trips to these noble historical cities, Pompeii & Herculanium and also perhaps to Caserta and Montecassino.

 

The South Lazio area is popular with Italian visitors during the month of August, however out of season it reverts to a peaceful setting that is still largely undiscovered by international tourists.

This is "Real Italy" !!!
