The region of Lazio in Central Italy is probably best known as the home of the Eternal City of Rome, but much of it is rural.  Covering most of west-central Italy, the landscape here transitions from the coast to a broad plain to the foothills of the Appenines as one moves west.  This drone video by druno beautifully captures the varied landscapes of the region; particularly beautiful is the rather dramatic  way in which the plains give way to the mountains.
