Fabulous Friuli

Welcome to Friuli Venezia Giulia, the most northeastern of Italian regions bordering Austria, Slovenia, and the Adriatic Sea. For centuries Friuli was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and you still see the influence there today. Friuli was an important strategic area in Roman times, and continues to be in modern Italy. Explore with us Trieste, the capital of Friuli and the birthplace of Illy coffee. You will witness the majesty of the largest piazza on water in Europe. As we travel together through the hills and mountains of Friuli we will experience local foods and taste what many people argue is the greatest white wine in Italy.
