Historic villas, houses, and castles: discover Italy Sotheby's International Realty's selection of prestigious properties in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Among the UNESCO sites and cities of art, Friuli Venezia Giulia collects the history of Europe: Aquileia, the metropolis of the Roman Empire, Cividale, the Lombard capital, Palmanova, a Renaissance fortress city, and also the cosmopolitan and magnificent Trieste, Udine, city of Tiepolo, Pordenone with its cultural festivals and finally Gorizia, a symbol of the twentieth century from the Great War to the Iron Curtain. This region has always been a border area, therefore historical events and the creation of its own culture have led to the birth of numerous fables and legends. Inside it is divided into two geographical-historical regions: Friuli, in the north, and Venezia Giulia, in the south. The two regions are different above all from the geographical point of view: mountains and plains. Different languages are spoken and such are the traditions of the two populations: the Friulians and the Julians. In addition to history, however, Friuli Venezia Giulia offers many sports opportunities: both for the most reckless and for the contemplatives, the nature of the Friulian landscape lends itself to multiple activities, including trekking, horseback riding, mountain biking and all winter sports disciplines. Finally, lovers of authentic flavors can get lost in culinary itineraries between villages and vineyards, discovering typical Friulian products, including tiramisù and fine wines, such as Il Friulano, the most widely produced quality wine in Friuli Venezia-Giulia, characterized with the scent and flavor of bitter almond.
