Friuli Venezia Giulia is a region little considered at the tourist level especially by foreigners. With all the beauties we have in Italy I think it is understandable to spend the 2 weeks of vacation per year visiting the Colosseum or Venice but, in recent years, is developing a new tourism, slow tourism and lover of uncontaminated places and above all far from classic tourist itineraries.

Friuli Venezia Giulia is one of the perfect destinations for tourists who do not just want to visit, but prefer to immerse themselves in 360 degrees in the habits and places where they go.

There are many types of vacation that can be done in my beloved Friuli.

The eno-gastronomic holiday along the wine routes, making tastings in the cellar or fantastic dinners in starred restaurants or farms immersed in the Collio area or in the Colli Orientali del Friuli.

The beach holiday where you can relax in the dozens of bathing establishments or try to do some new sport along the 90 kilometers of Friuli Venezia Giulia coastline.

The holiday in the mountains where you spend your time walking in the beautiful Friulian Dolomites or in the Julian Alps and eating in the dozens of shelters and huts in the area.

A sporting holiday where you will be spoiled for choice between mountain biking, horse riding and walking, trekking, climbing, kayaking, rafting, kanyoning, windsurfing, sup and kite surfing.

CITIES TO DO NOT MISS IN FRIULI VENEZIA GIULIA:

Udine historical capital of Friuli is absolutely one of the cities not to be missed if you go on holiday in Friuli Venezia Giulia. The city has developed around the hill where it still stands the original castle of 1500 but many other buildings deserve a passage as the Lionello loggia in Venetian Gothic style is the seat of the town hall, via Mercato Vecchio, Piazza delle erbe or Piazza San giacomo, the city center and its alleys, the cathedral of udine and Palazzo Antonini but also the ethnographic museum of Friuli, Casa Cavazzini and also the exhibitions inside the rooms of the castle.

There are many places to visit in Udine and even the inns are one of the typical things of the city. Find the logo “osteria storica” and you can have lunch in a piece of the city’s history. The best known are the Osteria il Cappello, La Ghiacciaia, the Antica Maddalena trattoria, the old Stallo, the tavern Pierimortadele, the Barnabiti, da Pozzo and the tavernetta.

 

Trieste capital of Friuli Venezia Giulia is a beautiful town overlooking the sea with which it has a very close relationship. Even in this border town you will have many stories to read and unmissable places to visit as the largest square on the sea in Europe, Piazza Unità d’Italia, Piazza della Borsa, the Grand Canal of Trieste with its cafes, the Roman amphitheater, the daring pier, the castle of Miramare and Duino, the Serbian-Orthodox temple of the Holy Trinity and San Spiridione, the botanical garden and the aquarium of Trieste, the Bora museum, the synagogue, the Museum of Joyce and many other museums.

A WEEKEND AT THE MILLSTATT AM SEE  LAKE IN AUSTRIA | THE BEST PLACE FOR TREK AND RELAX

A WEEKEND AT THE MILLSTATT AM SEE LAKE IN AUSTRIA | THE BEST PLACE FOR TREK AND RELAX

Sunbathing, hiking, lunch in the shelters, kayaking, boat rides, bike paths that line the lake, many baths in the lake and more.

Here’s what to do during a holiday on Lake Millstatt am See in Austria.

 

WHERE

 

Simon had heard about Lake Millstatt just 40 minutes from Villach long ago. At the end of May there was the opportunity to do 2 days out of town and we took the chance to visit this area of Austria and to do some good hiking in the mountains.

We booked the 4-star hotel Am See – Die Forelle which is right in the middle of the lake in the town of Millstatt. The Hotel is a mix. The dining rooms are in classic style while the terrace overlooking the lake and the dehor are modern and welcoming. Many of the rooms, the swimming pool, the garden and the breakfast room are overlooking the calm waters of the Millstatter see.

PET-FRIENDLY HOLIDAYS

We opted for the room on the lower floor with the largest terrace overlooking the lake, in this way our dog Giorgino had more space to roam especially while we were having breakfast (because the dogs are not allowed in the breakfast room – Sadness).

Apart from this the only problems (but classics throughout Austria) is that the restaurant closed at 20.00 – no way: O – and that there was never a barman at the bar and to drink a beer you had to look for the staff.

 

But otherwise everything is super.

Incredible breakfast of sweet and savory that you can also eat outdoors, pretty SPA and also the swimming pool not bad. In addition, the hotel is located right in the center and to go out for dinner just take a walk.
