Hiking where pleasure and active experiences unite

The Friuli-Venezia Giulia region is divided into the four provinces of Udine, Gorizia, Trieste and Pordenone. It borders Austria to the north, Slovenia to the east and the Adriatic Sea to the south. Due to its easy accessibility, the area is a popular destination for active holidaymakers who like to enjoy themselves. The picturesque mountain landscape of the Dolomites and the Italian Alps, which take up more than 40 percent of the country’s area, as well as the flatter areas off the Adriatic Coast and the hill country near Cividale del Friuli offer wonderful tour options for the gentle sport of hiking. To compensate for this, in lively Trieste, the capital of Friuli, you will find numerous cultural sights such as the Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia or the Castello di Miramare. After a relaxed stroll through the city, do as the Italians do and enjoy a wonderful coffee or Aperitivo in one of the inviting cafes. Just let your mind wander, that’s particularly easy in beautiful Trieste.

The perfect Italianità on your plate

Italianità is described as the Italian way of life, right down to the nature and character of the people of Italy. People in Italy hold on to many traditions to this day, not only in everyday life and culturally, but also in culinary terms. In many traditional dishes, the past merges with the present and with every bite you can taste even more of the region’s treasures. The well-known specialties of the region such as the ham from San Daniele, the Montasio cheese from Belluno and Treviso or the sweet Gubana cake are just a few of the absolute classics of Friulian cuisine.

Then there are the regional delicacies such as the freshly caught fish in the places on the coast and the more substantial dishes with game and meat in the more northerly regions. If you round off these dishes with a good glass of red or white wine from Friuli-Venezia Giulia, you can find the perfect ‘Italianità’ on the plate. Winegrowing here is a real art. The famous grappa, a distillate made from the highest quality grape marc, is also from this region. In the past it was produced as a drink for poor people, today it is served in many places and internationally to mark the end of a delicious meal. Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a true paradise for gourmets and wine connoisseurs.
