Lazio has a predominantly hilly terrain, ideal for cultivating vines and olive trees, while its coastal areas produce cereals and fruits and vegetables. Breeding is also very important, specialising in sheep and buffalo, from which the famous mozzarella cheese is made.
Typical Lazio dishes are mainly fruit, vegetables and dairy based, such as Pecorino Romano Dop, but olive oil is also very important.
Lazio viticulture produces numerous Doc wines, especially white wine, among which we can include the famous Est! East!! Est!!! di Montefiascone and il Colli Albani.
