In the north-west there are the Tolfa and Sabatini Mountains, but also the nature reserves of Macchiagrande, Macchiatonda, Torre Flavia and Canale Monterano. In the Tiber Valley lie the Park of Valle del Treja and the nature reserves of Nazzano-Tevere-Farfa and of Mount Soratte.


The Tiburtino-Sublacense area, crossed by the river Aniene includes the regional parks of the Lucretili and Simbruini Mountains.

Even before becoming the capital of the Italian Republic, Rome had always played a key role, in Italy as well as in Europe.
