Serviced Italian Travel for a Multi-Centre Holiday in Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia Giulia with Italia Mia
Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a region of Italy located in the North East of the country, bordering both Austria and Slovenia. Slovenia actually makes for a great addition to luxury Italy tours, adding in the option to visit exciting destinations such as Ljubljana, with its impressive Old Town, and Ptuj with its iconic Roman fort. Serviced Italian travel makes crossing back and forth between Slovenia and Italy simple and stress free, especially if you are carrying luggage. It's a fantastic opportunity to explore more of Europe.
Discover Trieste and her Canal Lined Culture with Australia based Italian Travel Agent, Italia Mia.
Trieste is the capital of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, and it’s well worth visiting when you travel to Italy. The cafe culture in Trieste is unlike anything else, and the beautiful waterfront is lined with cosy places to sit back, relax with a coffee, and enjoy the view. Trieste is also home to many wonderful museums. Perhaps one of the best is the onsite museum at the 19th century Miramare Castle, where you can see the chambers of Austrian Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian, and the throne room.
When you travel to regions of Italy that border other countries, you’ll find a fascinating blend of cultures and languages. To really immerse yourself in this blend, visit Gorizia which boasts Slovenian, German, Friulian, and Venetian influences. Also ideal for experiencing a mix of culture is Collio; a wine growing part of Friuli-Venezia Giulia which extends into Slovenia. Many different types of wine are produced here, including Brda Vines Sivi Pinot, Tokaj, Sauvignon, and Beli Pinot. Be sure to enjoy a glass or two!
