Home // Destinations // Friuli Venezia Giulia

Friuli Venezia Giulia is located in the North-East of Italy, it overlooks the Adriatic Sea and it is surrounded by high mountains, enclosing many different landscapes.
The mountain sceneries are truly spectacular: the Dolomites and the Julian Alps, the lakes, the valleys, the hills, and many protected areas contribute to give spectacular landscapes to this region. Trieste is the capital of the region and it is one of the most particular art cities in Italy, being its culture and language influenced by Slavic, Germanic and Latin origins and traditions. The variegated cultural heritage, determined by a complex history and by the confluence of different civilizations in this territory, has made Friuli Venezia Giulia earn the nickname of “land of contrasts”.

To truly witness the different cultures and influences of the region, it is possible to follow some of the many trails of the Alpe Adria Trail, that connects the three regions of Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli Venezia Giulia for a total of 43 stages and about 750 km. You can hike along the border of three countries with a transnational tour, or ride your bike to visit art cities, medieval towns and charming villages, wooded rivers and sparkling streams, that sometimes disappear in wild ravines.
It is also possible to move from the mountains to the sea with one bike tour that starts from the mountains in Austria to arrive on the Adriatic sea coast, in Grado, also known as  “the Sunny City”, situated on an island between Venice and Treviso, famous for its spas and curative sand, as well as for its fish cuisine.

The numerous hills on the territory allow the production of some of the greatest Italian wines, such as Cabernet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Nero and Refosco, that you can taste while hiking through the vineyards. Friuli Venezia Giulia is also home of the famous Prosciutto di San Daniele, a real delicatessen and typical product of the region, worldwide famous.
