The Territory

To the north and east, along the border with Abruzzo, there is a hilly and mountainous area which is less densely populated, where agriculture - producing mostly vegetables, oil and wine (the "vino dei Castelli")- and farming - especially sheep rearing and cheese production (the celebrated "pecorino romano") - are still widely practised. The Tiber and its tributary Aniene are the main rivers, and there are also many lakes of volcanic origin, the largest being Lake Bracciano, Lake Albano and Lake Nemi.
