The Lazio area of central Italy is characterised by a series of mountainous regions largely found to the eastern and southern areas of the area.
These mountains are of different types and sizes, which include the popular Colli mountain range that features smaller hills of little more than 1,000 metres in height. These are popular with those looking for hiking and low level climbing opportunities and are often part of major farming or wine making communities, which provide opportunities for outdoor activities to be combined with food and win tasting excursions.
Taller mountain ranges can be found to the east of the region and forms a major part of the Tiber Valley flowing to Rome. The tallest mountain in Lazio is Mount Gorzano that rises to almost 2,500 metres in height. Lakes form in the craters of the mountains in Lazio that forms a series of three ranges to provide numerous outdoor activity options, including boating and fishing opportunities. The Lazio region offers many outdoor activity options for visitors and is often seen as a major part of the tourism industry in the central portion of Italy.
