We suggest you an itinerary through Lazio, a region full of vents and venues dip into nature, where to relax youselves and find your own balance. If this isn’t enough, you can also go to Rome, to be always updated about new trends and fashion styles that often start here.
Gourmet roads and sips of excellence
Who likes enogastronomy can go through the road of wines at Castelli Romani, an area next to Rome where is possible to visit churches, villas from Renaissance and wide stretch of grapevine.
