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:
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?
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.
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.
Have you ever made these itineraries?

Above Moggio Udinese following path CAI 418/420, begins the trek called “Troj by Borgs”, a beautiful medium difficulty 4 hours trail that allows you to visit remote villages of the end ‘800th century, ancient inhabited by famous stonemasons of the area and shepherds.
So one morning of April, me and my boyfriend Simo, decided to leave home (not to early, because I looove to sleep, just to be clear) to visit this gorgeous track in the middle of nowhere (my land is exactly in the middle 😀 LOL ) .
So in spring I’m always absolutely out of shape and the mission was to do an easy walk to train legs.
We park in Moggio in the monastery area, not even a minute, and we get lost, good start honey …
After a short wander down the village we see a lady with technical clothing so we understand immediately that she and her funny pail were our salvation and shrewdly we decide to follow her. We follow her following the right path and then from the fountain of Moggio High we find cartels for the town COSTA from where an easy mule track start.
I admit to follow this path that meanders gently in the midst of white spruce forests, beech and black pine is delightful. In an hour and a half without great difficulty ‘(and if ‘m telling you ..) passing waterfalls, streams and spectacular views of the Glagno’ valley you reach the first forgotten village: Moggessa di qua’.
