Another Sunday, another adventure.

The other week I received an email from Promoturismo Friuli Venezia Giulia of which I am Ambassador. They asked me if I was available to take a free course with them from a professional film maker on how to “create emotional videos” with a mobile phone. I love to create videos (although with poor results) I could not believe it.

I took the ball and took advantage of this trekking in Val Alba (look the video above)  also to do a trial and not get to the course empty-handed.

ORRIDO DELLO SLIZZA IN TARVISIO – AN EASY WALK FOR ALL THE FAMILY

ORRIDO DELLO SLIZZA IN TARVISIO – AN EASY WALK FOR ALL THE FAMILY

In the area of ​​Boscoverde in Tarvisio, in my beloved Friuli, it is possible to walk along an alpine stream with a color so pure and blue that you can not believe it.

 

SOME INFO:

The stream Slizza during its hundreds of years of activity has created a real canyon in which it flows and where we can admire it to the maximum of its color. The Slizza starts from Sella Nevea, another border town and after having crossed the Rio del Lago valley reaches Tarvisio before finishing its run in Austria.

Last Sunday we had a few hours free so I, Simon and our dog Giorgino left for Tarvisio to enjoy the show of the Slizza surrounded by snow. Going down the gorge along the footbridge full of snow was not too easy but the show that we opened under our feet has repaid every effort made. The contrast of colors is incredible in every season but in winter with ice along the catwalks and in the caves makes you feel inside a fairy tale.

I suggest to do this walk from spring to the fall season because in winter could be dangerous for all the snow and ice on the footbridge.

THEN IS HAPPENED THIS:

During our walk I made some video with the DJI OSMO. It was more like a test because I bought this camera recently and I do not understand all the features yet. At home I created the video and with much effort of my internet line, I uploaded it on my youtube channel. Not even a week later, a journalist  of udine contacted me to share the video on their channels with reference to my site.

This obviously made me very happy, even if with hindsight … I could do it better and commit myself a little more, but as I said before, it was a test.

 

In any case, the video had more than 11 thousand views and more than 100 shares. You can imagine my mixed happiness surprise. In this way I was able to make myself known above all in my province and get in touch with many people who love the mountains and the adventure like me.

“Slow tourism” : is born the “Atlas of the Italian Paths” discover it!

“Slow tourism” : is born the “Atlas of the Italian Paths” discover it!

The future is sustainable tourism for this is born www.camminiditalia.it where lovers of “slow travel” will discover cultural itineraries, spectacular landscapes and unique experiences.

 

For 10 years now it seems that tourism is having a turnaround. While in the early 2000s the reduction of airline ticket prices had led to an increase in “fast see-and-go” travelers, today it no longer seems so.

 

In recent years there has been an increase in “SLOW tourism”, people who do not just want a simple holiday but are looking for real experiences in the places they visit. So no longer just beaches and umbrellas, but evenings in taverns, talking to local people, cycling trails that wind up amidst the beautiful remote countries and that in our country are certainly not lacking.

 

The transport also changes. Here Austrians, Germans and Dutch cross our country making “bikepacking” or trekking, in high altitude trips sleeping in shelters and bivouacs appreciating hills, mountains, Alps and Apennines.

 

“Slow tourism” : is born the “Atlas of the Italian Paths” for trekking and outdoor enthusiasts!

 

 

So is born the Atlas of Routes of Italy ( HERE )  through the Ministry of Culture which aims to emphasize the historical paths, nature, culture and religious crossing our country by creating tourism in lesser-known areas but equally spectacular.

As part of the Atlas, the paths must meet specific requirements such as having proper signage, having an up-to-date web site, trekking that is suitable for everyone and not dangerous, and not more than 5 km from hotels and rest points.

 

The Friuli Venezia Giulia have 3 treks in the Atlas:

 

LA VIA ALPINA  – THE ALPS ROUTE

The Via Alpina is an incredible and very long trek that winds its way through half of Europe and starts right from Friuli Venezia Giulia, to be exact from Trieste.

It consists of 5 routes through 8 different countries: Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, France and the Principality of Monaco.

Crossing the Alps, going from the sea to the mountain and vice versa, crossing the 3000 meters of altitude for over 5,000 kilometers when you arrive in Munich you will not end the Alpine route but probably the most beautiful European treking existing. What are you waiting for?

IL CAMMINO CELESTE – THE EVEN TREK

Through this path you retrace ancient pilgrimage path that led from Aquileia, home of the mother diocese of the time until the Sanctuary of Lussari, Tarvisio. The end of the trek is through the beautiful “sentiero del pellegrino”.

The Heavenly Way is reachable by another 2 paths from Austria and Slovenia. Even in the Middle Ages Friuli was known as a land of passage and pilgrims originating from other countries were the norm. Through oral and written testimonies, you have been able to discover the ancient paths that allowed the people to reach the various shrines on foot.

IL CAMMINO DELLE PIEVI IN CARNIA

This ring is a pilgrimage that winds along 20 stages to discover the ancient churches Carniche. The churches were places of intense spirituality, built in the Middle Ages under the thrust of the city of Aquileia, which wanted to convert the inhabitants of the pagan Carnia to Christians.

The sanctuaries and churches that can be discovered along this beautiful trek are the testimony of Christianity in Carnia, an incredible spiritual and reflection path.
