Guides & Maps on Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Though most commonly used as a crossroads, this newly created region of Italy has spent much of the last several hundred years as part of Germany and Austria.

Indeed it was not granted the independence it is known until the late 1960s. Today, most of the travel between Italy and Eastern Europe goes though this area, as it borders both Austria and Slovenia.

The capital of Trieste is an ancient port city of the Adriatic that has been the site of much wealth and culture, rivalling Naples and Florence throughout much of its history.

Agriculture is a very important part of the economy, with cattle and pigs being very important. There is also quite a bit of wine production as well as the distillation of grappa.

The climate and terrain vary from alpine in the north to quite mild by the sea.

Of the four provinces that make up the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, the largest is the only one without a coastline.

Visitors will enjoy the relative peace and natural beauty this often-forgotten region has to offer.
