Friuli Venezia Giulia has always been considered a bridge between East and West, and Trieste, the capital of this northern region of Italy, was the hub of this Mitteleuropean culture in the past. If you go for a holiday in Friuli Venezia Giulia...
and visit Trieste, don't miss out Piazza Unità d'Italia, the city's central square, a sort of amazing and big terrace overlooking the sea; Miramar Castle and Duino castles should also be pointed out: situated on top of a cliff overhanging the sea, these two amazing castles are located just a few kilometres far from Trieste.
Other interesting sites to visit for their historical and artistic attractions are Grado, a Roman city where you shouldn't miss out Santa Maria delle Grazie and Sant'Eufemia Basils, and Cividale del Friuli, whose main sights are the Lombard shrine and Duke Rachis' altar, a beautiful example of Lombard Renaissance sculpture.
Among all the natural beauties that you may enjoy during your holiday in Friuli Venezia Giulia, we strongly suggest you visit Grotta Gigante in Sgonico (Giant Cave in English): it's the largest tourist cave in the world having been put in the Guinness Book of Records. You may take vantage of the scheduled visits with experts guide to experience a walk 120 meters underground that...you won't easily forget!
To all those who are looking for trekking trails during their holiday in Friuli Venezia Giulia, we recommend the First World War trails, suggestive itineraries which cross Carso (Karst in English, a limestone region which extends in Slovenia and north-eastern Italy) for discovering those sites where the First World War took place.
