Where to go in Friuli Venezia Giulia


Erstwhile home to Romans, Longobards, Venetians and Hapsburgs: the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia is a treasure trove of artistic gems, a tightly woven fabric of art, culture and tradition that tells unique stories. These tales should be savoured slowly and their contents revealed only gradually in order to capture all their flashes of magic.
Trieste is an incredible mixture of elegant Hapsburg buildings and historic coffee houses, with the sea seeming almost to wash up into the city. This same sea has given the city its cosmopolitan feel: around the city visitors can see traces of the Catholic, Evangelical, Waldensian, Serbian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox and Jewish faiths, with a former ghetto now occupied by antique and used furniture shops.
Gorizia, the “garden city”, expresses all its Mitteleuropa charm with refinement and nobility. The city and its surrounding countryside formed one of the nerve centres of the First World War.
Udine enchants the visitor with the warmth of its hostelries, masterpieces by Tiepolo, welcoming piazzas and elegant streets lined with grand Venetian- and Liberty-style buildings.
Pordenone, the city of porticoed streets and frescoed buildings, is awash with captivating events, such as pordenonelegge.it, a lively literature festival.
