Life is becoming normal again.
Since last year we have a limited social life. Even in our city, we couldn’t go out like we used to. Covid 19 cases are decreasing and travel rules are easing. With the arrival of summer, we can enjoy these days.
Italy is a wonderful country and there are so many towns/cities to visit.
Before Covid, I was traveling the other Italian cities/towns . One of my favorite city to visit is Florence. I was taking a train early in the morning and arriving there around 09:00 to 10:00 o’clock.. I was drinking coffee there and starting to enjoy art and architecture. I was eating lunch and ice cream and coming back to Rome around 16:00 to 17:00 o’clock.
I don’t know this year am I going to visit another cities or not but I am going to continue to visit places near to Lazio.
It is a perfect time of year to explore the beautiful historic towns that near to Rome. When you think of Italian towns most likely first turn to Tuscany with iconic destinations like Pisa, San Gimignano and Siena. Lazio towns are much less known to international tourism but they are wonderful and make ideal day trips from Rome.
In today’s post, I would like to share four best Lazio towns to visit on a day trip.

Viterbo is home to Italian gold reserves and an important Academy of Fine Arts.
It is located at the northern end of Lazio, near to Orvieto. The town is a combination of romance and nature. There is a lake with the seclusion and the closeness to nature You can go for a swim or hiking.
