Friuli-Venezia Giulia is up in the far north-eastern corner of Italy, on the border with Austria and Slovenia. Despite appearing somewhat marginalised in relation to the rest of the peninsula, this quiet region, in reality enjoys a prime location. Friuli-Venezia-Giulia is, in fact, at the centre of Europe and represents a crossroads and meeting place for various different languages and ethnicities.
Bordered to the north by the Julian Prealps and the Friuli Dolomites, less then 100km to the south by the Adriatic Sea, is the perfect location for a vast choice of holidays activities. Snow-capped mountains, warm sandy beaches, rocky coastal cliffs, enchanting landscapes dotted with vineyards and castles, idyllic villages, all offering a great tourist destination for families and groups who enjoy sports and outdoor adventures!
The great variety of landscapes matches the rich and variegated cultural heritage that was determined by a complex history and by the confluence of different civilizations in this territory. For this reason, Friuli Venezia Giulia looks like a small universe with many different traditions: it is the “land of contrasts”.
