Trieste – Cividale – Gorizia. Tour Bus + guided tour. The heart of Collio and Friuli. Cividale, Unesco Heritage. Gorizia, the last Wall of Europe. An immersion in the art and landscapes of the symbolic places in the history of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Cividale, a city proud of its most precious jewels, recognized as World Heritage Sites. It is one of the most beautiful towns in Friuli which is perched on the banks of the Natisone river and surrounded by ancient medieval walls. The city is founded by Giulio Cesare under the name of Forum Iulii – where the name Friuli comes from. Cividale is enriched by the passage of the Lombards and the Franks and so the city of Cividale holds treasures of an extraordinary millennial history. The guided tour crosses the squares and places that bear witness to a glorious and mysterious past: the evocative Devil’s Bridge, the Celtic Hypogeum, the Longobard Temple, the Cathedral and the Medieval House. An itinerary to discover the history and legends of the first Lombard duchy in Italy. Free time to taste the delicious Friulian food and wine in one of the characteristic bars of the historic center. Departure to Gorizia. Visit to Gorizia, symbol of the history of the two world wars in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Lying along the Isonzo river and framed between the Karst hills and the Collio slopes, the German painter Max Klinger defined Gorizia as “the most beautiful open door to Italy”. A frontier town with an Habsburg atmosphere, where one can breathe the history of the Great War and the Cold War. The guided tour discovers the symbolic places of the ancient and modern history of the city: the Gorizia Castle, the historic center and the Transalpina Square where Europe has no borders.
Weekly departure from Trieste on Tuesdays.
