Location description from owner

The Friuli Venezia Giulia region

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a beautiful and still unknown region of North Eastern Italy. It is on borders with Austria, Slovenia and the Adriatic Sea, next door to Veneto and is, therefore, the melting pot for many different cultures. In a rather small perimeter there is a great variety of different smashing landscapes: from high mountains, rolling hills, green fertile plains to rock or sand beaches. The territory has many important and pretty historical sites and towns. Strassoldo is in a very central position of the region. An ideal starting place to visit both the region itself and also Venice, Austria and Slovenia. For those who love swimming, the seaside is on 20 minutes drive. In 400 a.C. this territory was conquered by the Celts and afterwards in 300 a.C. by the Romans who in 181 a.C. built the beautiful colony of Aquileia, one of the most important towns of the Empire and nowadays still preserves stunning mosaics and rests. With the end of the Roman Empire many "barbarian" tribes crossed the region's alpine passes, such as the Huns that destroyed Aquileia in 452 d.C. and the Langobards that settled down here from 568 to 776 building the Duchy of Cividale which was then destroyed by the Avars, but still preserves a lovely "Devil's bridge" over the green Natisone river and several other attractions.Charlemagne annexed it to Austria chosing Cividale as capital of a territory which then included also Istria and part of Eastern Tirol (796).Destroyed again by the Hungars it was divided into four parts (828) and under Otto I the region became part of Bavaria (952) remaining under the Saxon domination until 1420.The area was then dominated by the Venetians for nearly four centuries until it was dominated by Napoleon who signed the Agreement of Campoformido owing to which it became part of Austria from 1797 to 1805. From 1805 to 1814 it belonged to the Italian Kingdom and then passed under Austrian domination again until the Third Independance War after which, in 1966, it was again annexed to Italy with the exception of the Province of Gorizia which became part of Italy after the First World War.The region's climate is quite nice with warm Summers, wonderful Autumns and Springtimes and not too cold Winters.
