Friuli Region is also known for its remarkable and picturesque wine district known as “Collio”, where exceptional wines are produced such as Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon, Verduzzo, Malvasia and Cabernet, Merlot.
The history of Friuli is quite particular, given its geographic, ethnical, and cultural location as a frontier hub between central Europe to the north, the Slav regions to the east and the Italian Peninsula to the west and south. The region has a thousand year tradition of artistic mosaic making which dates back to pre-Roman times. The mosaics inside the still functioning basilica of Aquileia, which was built by the Romans, are excellent examples of this ancient art. Friuli is one of Italy’s most versatile regions able to satisfy tastes of everyone with snow-capped mountains, warm sandy beaches, remote alpine hamlets, Roman ruins, palatial country villas, rocky coastal cliffs and picturesque fishing villages.
