Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy, with Viaggi Elite

Situated in Italy’s northeast, bordering Slovenia and Austria, Friuli-Venezia Giulia overlooks the Adriatic Sea and is surrounded by high mountains which encircle many different landscapes. The mountain sceneries of the Eastern Dolomites are truly spectacular: the Carnic and the Julian Alps, in addition to the lakes, valleys and protected areas.

The coast is trimmed with lagoons and has long sandy beaches, with several resorts like the famous Lignano Sabbiadoro, a popular tourist destination.  The coast from Monfalcone to Trieste is quite rocky.

Spilimbergo, a village of ancient origin, gained its splendour during the Medieval and Renaissance Period. This village, notably known as “the Town of Mosaic”, is the capital of ornamental mosaic, for floors and walls decorations and precious works of art made within local studios, having enriched airports, universities, royal palaces, public and private buildings, stadiums, cathedrals and monasteries all over the world. The Mosaic School in Spilimbergo is the crowning glory of this creative tradition that started generations ago. Craftsmen from Friuli brought with them the coloured stones of their rivers, and began to export their skills and expertise to France, the Americas and Australia.

Trieste is an extraordinary destination for its historic treasures, artworks and middle-European character. Off the coast of magnificent blue sea, you will find a number of tiny bays, small harbours and breathtaking reefs.

Pordenone – besides the naturalistic attractions, the province offers charming small villages and art treasures that combine the culture of Friuli with Venetian and Austrian influences. The flavours of this land are unmistakable: the local food tradition, the authenticity of specialties and a wide variety of wines will satisfy any food lover.

Udine – this varied area extends from the beach at Lignano Sabbiadoro to the snowy mountaintops of the Alpine Foothills, Carnic Alps and Julian Alps. Characterised by villas, towers and castles in the countryside and in the hills, its renowned for its incredible gastronomic specialties and fine wines.
