Labico is a comune (municipality) of about 6,200 inhabitants in the Metropolitan City of Rome in the Italian region Latium, located about 35 kilometres (22 mi) southeast of Rome.

It takes its name from the ancient Labicum, although it is more likely that the modern town was the location of Bolae, the city that fought Rome around the 5th century BC.
