Not only does this mean there’s plenty to see and experience, but there’s also a wealth of gastronomic delights to feast on. If your dream holiday is a melting pot of tantalising flavours, head to FVG’s capital Trieste – an ideal starting point for food-focused winter weekends.
Follow my lead by exploring this ancient city’s architecturally astounding streets to sample hearty stews, sugar-laced strudels and locally produced Grappa. If you migrate northwest to quaint Pordenone or northeast to Udine, you’ll find a further feast-worthy fare. I swooned over the polenta pastissada (a cornmeal dish loaded with gooey cheese and rich meat sauce) and delectably sweet dessert pizzas. Not to mention the stunning mountain views, intoxicating atmosphere and sublime seascapes!
