Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Bordering Slovenia to the east and Austria to the north, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a region often overlooked by travellers to Italy, even though Venice is only an hour away. A fascinating mix of Slavic, Lombard, Venetian, and Austro-Hungarian influence, Friuli-Venezia Giulia has so much to discover. Walk the elegant streets of Trieste, visit a UNESCO-recognized ancient Roman city, and drink the superb wines of the Colli Orientali.

Bocconcini-Sized Tales

In the car during a road trip in Slovenia, my friend and I realized how close we were to the border, looked at each other, and made an impulse decision to just keep driving west. We couldn’t resist Italy’s siren song, and visited Trieste, Duino, and Udine.
