Friuli Venezia Giulia is situated at the north east of the Italian peninsula. It is bordered to the east with Slovenia, to the north with Austria to the west with Veneto and on the south is wet by the Adriatic Sea. Like all the borderlands region is influenced by various cultures with which it is in contact today and that have taken place in history, as the culture and traditions of Austrians and the culture and traditions of Slavs. The territory encompasses different types of landscapes. Widespread is the mountain landscape with which the Eastern Dolomites, the Alps of Karst and the Julian Alps are the boundary to the whole region. The karst landscape is typical of these areas and consists of vast stretches of rock eroded by water and wind forming numerous caves and cavities, and where the soil is barren as the rivers run deep and not on the surface. The coastal landscape, in the south of the region, are naturally sandy in the western part bordering the Veneto, where we can find places like Lignano Sabbiadoro and Grado, while proceeding towards the east coast becomes more rocky and covered with rocks. The presence of both the sea and the mountains makes the region attractive for tourism and summer resort both for winter tourism with many ski resorts like Tarvisio, Piancavallo or the Monte Zoncolan. The main center of artistic and cultural interest is Trieste, which is the capital of the region, with its palaces overlooking the Piazza Unità d’Italia, its museums and its buildings that recall his past glittering. To it are added Udine, Gorizia, Pordenone Cividale and San Daniele. Among all is definitely the town of Aquileia one that generates a greater tourist attraction.
