Things to do when camping in Rome & Lazio
Aptly named the Eternal City, Rome needs little introduction as a tourist destination. Along with cool cafes serving espresso, gelato stores on every corner and rustic restaurants serving up perfect pasta, there’s an abundance of amazing attractions to visit.
Perhaps the most famous visitor attraction, the Colosseum stands on the site of Nero’s Palace and is a captivating experience. Walk through the ancient ruins that once held brutal spectator sports of Roman times including gladiator battles and wild animal fighting.
A brilliant example of baroque architecture, the Trevi Fountain features the dramatic figure of Neptune in his seashell chariot. Push through the crowds to get that picture perfect photograph and remember to throw a coin over your shoulder to ensure you’ll return to Rome one day.
The Vatican City, completely enveloped by Rome, is the world’s smallest country and despite its diminutive size, it’s packed full of sightseeing opportunities. Take a walk around St Peter’s Basilica, marvel at the Sistine Chapel, behold the beauty of the Apostolic Palace and find peace in the Vatican Gardens.
The Roman Forum, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Villa Borghese and Circus Maximus are yet more attractions worth a mention. Just in case the kids tire of history and culture, there's plenty from them to do in Rome such as Cinecittà World Amusement Park, Bioparco di Roma Zoo and Bambini Di Roma Interactive Museum.
In the lush landscapes of Lazio, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a playground for outdoor adventures awaits. On the coast, the gentle waves of the Tyrrhenian Sea lap against the towns of Sperlonga and Gaeta, where sunny beach days can be enjoyed. There are several beaches with blue flag status dotted along the coast with the fine sands at Promontorio del Circeo, Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo and Terracina ranking among the best.
If you fancy walking or cycling around green spaces in the countryside consider a day trip to the beautiful Lake Albano. Likewise, the volcanic crater Lake of Bracciano offers scenic walks around the shore or pleasant boat trips on the water. In the enchanting Ninfa Gardens, visitors are rewarded with beautiful nature comprising exotic plants, grassy fields and fascinating medieval ruins.
Come join us on a truly memorable camping holiday in Rome and Lazio where you can explore the ancient ruins of the eternal city or relax in the midst of blissful nature in the countryside or by the coast.
