From ancient Rome to Operation Shingle – Journey between history and nature along the Lazio coast

The tour is dedicated to the beauties of Rome and the southern coast of Lazio, up to the borders with Campania where you can find a more typically Mediterranean atmosphere. In addition to the transversal monuments at each epoch that the Eternal City shows off, the trip will be dedicated to the Roman ruins of the coast and its natural beauties. Including a stop in the only Marine Natural Park in Europe and in one of the most beautiful gardens in the world, the Oasis of Ninfa. Here, paths immersed in lush vegetation lead to the ruins of a city with Roman origins, whose prestige culminates in medieval times and which was sacked and abandoned in 1381. Reborn as a private English garden and pilgrimage destination for famous Italian and foreign artists and intellectuals, it is now a natural monument that will undoubtedly enchant. Another peculiarity of the trip is the stage dedicated to the memory of the allies’ landing during the second war, one of the most epic and poignant episodes of our recent history, and to the monumental cemetery that celebrates the fallen.
