Known in Italian as La Grande Guerra, the war is commemorated today across FVG in parks, museums and preserved historic sites. If you’re looking for an educational trip where you can soak up culture and history as well as experience Italy’s mouthwatering flavours and scenic countryside, follow this tour that twists its way around the landmarks of WWI.
I made my way through this picturesque border region on a captivating war-themed pilgrimage. From the exhibits of Museo della Grande Guerra to the carved stones of Trieste’s Memorial Park, there’s a wealth of places that recall this pivotal period in history. Remember the soldiers’ bravery, read up on wartime stories and reflect on a time that played such a pivotal part in our lives today. Whether you’re with a partner or you’ve got the whole family in tow, there’s something for everyone (even if the kids are most interested in crisp melt-in-your-mouth pastries!).
