Geography
Lazio borders Tuscany to the northwest, Umbria and Marche to the north, Abruzzo to the east, Campania to the southeast and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. The 54% of its territory is hilly, the 26% is mountainous, the rest are mostly alluvial plains. Southern Maremma, Agro Pontino and the Tiber Valley are the main flat lands. The hydrography includes several lakes, some of them of volcanic origins, and the river Tiber, the third-longest watercourse in Italy.
