A tip for an alternative travel in north Italy

Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy
Set in the north eastern side of Italy, the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia is not one of the most attractive areas of the Bel paese, because of its geographic position, out of the "classic" tour of Italy from Venice to Rome, passing through Florence.
Yet it's an incredibly deep container of culture and history, as boarder region being relevant for the protection of Italy since the roman empire and until world war II, and an important commercial area as closest access to the sea for a large part of Europe.
And above all, what's attractive to us is the gems it preserves from massive tourism: Tarvisio and Lignano are two of the most charming destinations of the area, that perfectly represent the soul of Friuli region as we described it.


The position of junction between Friuli, Austria and Slovenia in Roman times favored the establishment of Tarvisio, a village that in the Middle Ages became famous for fairs and the iron industry. Peaceful immigration or violent destruction by Transalpine populations have always marked the events of Tarvisio. Placed in the Val Canale, Tarvisio is surrounded by an environmental reserve, the Tarvisio Forest, woodland and wildlife oasis which houses deer, ibex and brown bears in the frame of the rare spruce and fir. Nearby is also the Fusine Lakes Regional Park, known for its clear waters.

Lignano Sabbiadoro

Modern Lignano is one of northern Italy’s premier beach destinations, with sweeping stretches of sand set against a backdrop of dark pines in Lignano Pineta and Lignano Riviera, and theme parks and multi-story car parks in brash, but never boring, Lignano Sabbiadoro.
Three camping grounds, including Pino Mare, a tree-shaded cabin village at the mouth of the Tagliamento river, supplement the 100-plus hotels. At the other end of the scale, Mitteleuropean luxe is heaped on at Hotel Greif, with wood-floored rooms, big bathrooms, views, and jaunty guest bicycles.
