Friuli-Venezia-Giulia allows holiday-makers to immerse themselves in the stunning nature and culture of this Adriatic coastline region of North-East Italy and thanks to our self-catering Friuli-Venezia-Giulia accommodation visitors can explore the charms of this Italian region at their own pace.
By making fully-equipped holiday apartments Friuli-Venezia Giulia their home-base, independent visitors have a wide choice of things to do in this corner of the Adriatic coast. A visit to the port city of Trieste is a must. The former Adriatic capital of the Austrian-Hungarian empire, the regional capital city fascinates thanks to its blend of cultures and architectural styles. Trieste is small enough to explore on foot from Friuli-Venezia-Giulia accommodation: an itinerary including the Roman acropolis of San Giusto, through to the Viennese style piazzas and the rambling and narrow Venetian style lanes and vistas in the Old Town is recommended. Art lovers should head for the Revoltella Museum and Gallery in Trieste's picturesque centre before sampling the local cuisine and excellent wines.
Further along the Adriatic coast the World Heritage Site of Aquileia boasts an incredibly well-preserved Roman settlement open year-round. Nearby beach Grado is a definite hit in summer, too. From the coast, visitors should head for the northern part of the region: the Friuli. In the province of Udine, the ancient towns of Udine and Cividale deserve a visit. Mountain lovers will also be happy in holiday apartments Friuli-Venezia-Giulia thanks to the easy access to the Julian Alps (Alpi Giulie). Flexible Friuli-Venezia Giulia accommodation also enables motorists to explore Slovenia and Croatia just east of the border.
