Suggested Visits

Discover our wonderful Region!

This small guide is just a selection of beautiful villages to visit. In order to better savor the beauty of these places, we recommend reading a guide to the Friuli Venezia Giulia region in advance.

Composite itinerary

The Pedemontana, the Friulian Dolomites, the snows of Piancavallo and the sources of the Livenza.

The tour starts from Maniago, the city of knives, with a visit to the historic center, the Romanesque cathedral and the Cutler Consortium where you can see and buy the best products of the skilled Maniago artisans.

Departure for Valcolvera, visit to Poffabro-Frisanco, two of the most beautiful villages in Italy according to the Airone guide: fascinating houses with wooden balconies, set in the rock of Mount Jouf.

Continue towards the lake of Barcis through the pass of the Pala Barzana, mt. 800, visiting Andreis, the town of birds of prey and flowered balconies.

Highly recommended is a visit to the Alta Valcellina which includes Pian Pinedo (educational farm and wildlife park); Claut - the museum of the Clautan house, ice rink; Cimolais - visitor center of the Friuli Dolomites Park; the characteristic village of Erto and Casso and the infamous Vajont dam.

At this point you can choose the way back between two alternatives:
1) get off at Longarone and return to Pordenone via Vittorio Veneto - Sacile
2) return to Barcis and through the Caulana road you will reach Piancavallo for a cable car ride among the immaculate snows (in winter) or verdant mountains (in summer)

After the descent to Aviano, visit Polcenigo to admire the village and the sources of the Livenza.

Conclude, stop in Sacile, the garden of the Serenissima and, on the way back, to Vivaro. A stop in Pordenone for a walk in the historic center for shopping is recommended.
