Caves

not only above the 
ground Friuli is beautiful

Friuli Venezia Giulia is not only nice and interesting above the ground but also underneath! There are many caves, from small to large. Especially in the area of Trieste, here the landscape is made of karst rocks (rich in limestone), also known as il 'Carso'.

This ensures that the water easily passes and caves are formed.

The most famous cave is the giant cave, 'la Grotte Gigante "in Sgonico,

near Trieste. The great room is so huge that one jokes that the Dome of St. Peter's church in Rome fits into it. It is even in the Guinness book of records. " Click for more information on the link to go to the site of the cave.

San Daniele

famous for its raw ham but not only....

20 kilometers west of Udine, located on top of one of the hills around Udine, you will find the village of San Daniele. The village is famous for its raw ham "prosciutto crudo" which has been produced here for centuries using a special way of preparing thanks to the micro-climate. Yet the village is also worth a visit for other reasons. How about the beautiful inside of the little church "Sant'Antonio Abate" containing such beautiful 16th century frescoes that it's called the Sistine Chapel of Friuli. Or visit the oldest public library of this region

"La Guarneriana" containing books starting from the 11th century. For more info on the San Daniele ham, click on this link.

The Alps

go mountainbike, 

hike and ski

This region has beautiful mountains. In the north of Friuli Venezia Giulia you will find the Alps and even part of the Dolomites. They are divided into Alpi Giulie (northeast) and Alpi Carniche (north) and Friuli Dolomites (north west). They are the perfect scenery for hiking or mountain biking during all seasons, but especially in the fall when the nature colors itself with spectacular colors. In these mountains you will find two protected natural parks, rich of hiking and biking trails. In the winter you can ski in one of the many ski areas that the region offers and do nothing under for their Austrian competitors. More on that can be read in the chapter 'skiing' on this site. Need more information about the parks then click on the link below.
