Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the very north-east of Italy is well-known for long beaches and lively cities. But few know that the varied landscapes, from the flat coast to the alpine valleys, are perfect for cycling adventures.

In this Collection, eight cycling Tours await you, from the simple family loop on the beach to the hilly ride through vast vineyards. A dolce vita feeling with influences from the neighbouring countries Austria and Slovenia are guaranteed and provide a lot of variety. The loop through the Collio even takes you into the Slovenian wine region for a stretch.

You can look forward to shaded cycle paths on old railway tracks, incredible views of majestic peaks and stunning gorges, as well as sunny stretches along lengthy beaches and species-rich lagoons. On the Tour to the dreamlike Weissenfels Lakes near Tarvisio, you can even jump into a turquoise mountain lake. Of course, on each of the eight rides in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, there are also many bars and restaurants with classic Italian delicacies.

Ready? Enjoy the sun and the Mediterranean flair between the Julian Alps and the Adriatic coast!
