Places and tours of Friuli Venezia Giulia

The Friuli Venezia Giulia region has so much to offer tourists, both in terms of cultural tourism, both in terms of natural landscapes, so there are so many places and itineraries in Friuli Venezia Giulia that deserve to be visited.

Starting from the must-see towns such as Trieste, with its marvellous Miramare Castle, Gorizia, a meeting point between East and West, but also Cividale del Friuli and Aquileia, both nominated by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.

As for the landscapes, the mountain ones are not to be missed, such as the Natural Park of the Friulian Dolomites, but there are also sea landscapes, such as the beautiful Lignano Sabbiadoro, a beautiful town overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

Stories and traditions of Friuli Venezia Giulia

The history of Friuli Venezia Giulia is very particular because this territory has been crossed by different peoples: first the Roman settlements of Aquileia and Cividale del Friuli, then the annexation to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and, only recently, the annexation to Italy. The alternation of these peoples has given rise to various traditions linked to different eras: the legend of the Puteum Aureo, for example, dating back to the Roman period, or the tradition of the Benandanti linked, instead, to pagan cults widespread in Germany and throughout central Europe.
