Best things to do and places to visit for Friuli Venezia Giulia

A land of contrasts and borders: there’s a particular atmosphere in Friuli Venezia Giulia in the northeastern part of Italy on the border with Austria and Slovenia.

An area facing the Adriatic Sea and at the same time surrounded by mountains such as the Oriental Dolomites, the Alpi Carniche, and the Prealpi, destinations that offer numerous winter locations for ski enthusiasts.

There are numerous unspoiled panoramas which can be visited starting with the Carso Plateau, a unique destination from a nature point of view, where amongst the rock and paths you can discover the locations of the Great War, as well as typical villages (such as Aquileia, UNESCO World Heritage Site), and local products.

Close to Sgonico you can visit Grotta Gigante and the Speleological Museum. Trieste, the capital, is nicknamed the “Little Vienna on the Sea”, and is an elegant city dominated by buildings of Neoclassical, Tudor revival, and Baroque styles and historic findings. The town is famous for its coffee, seeing as since the 18th century it has been a free port for coffee import.

There’s a wide choice of activities for trekking and bird watching enthusiasts among the natural reserves, as well as for lovers of water sports among the seaside resorts of Lignano Sabbiadoro and Grado.

There’s also an option for those more “lazy” who can allow themselves a re-energizing break at the hot springs of Grado or Lignano Rivera.
