1. Immediate Environs and the Campagna.

The vast Campagna di Roma, bounded on the N. by the Monte Cimino, on the W. by the sea, on the S. by the Alban Mts., and on the E. by the Apennine chain of the Sabina, affords an ample field ,for a number of the most interesting excursions. The mountains with their picturesque outlines, and the wild and deserted plain, covered in every direction with imposing ruins, chiefly of ancient origin, present attractions of the highest order, to which years of study might fitly be devoted.
