Nuzzled up against the Italian border with Slovenia, it’s an area oozing with culture. There’s just no better feeling than whizzing around the beautiful scenery and the striking architecture of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region with the wind in my hair. And with temperatures ranging between a pleasant 13 and 24 degrees Celsius in early and mid-autumn, this season is definitely one of the top times of year to tour on two wheels.
I’ve selected my favourite routes – a mixture of easy, medium and more challenging levels, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re a cycling newbie or a full-on aficionado. Here are the trails I’d recommend if you’re keen on exploring this enchanting region.
