Friuli-Venezia Giulia's four main cities are iconic of a complicated, very interesting history… region of contrasts and similarities, as the very hyphenated name Friuli-Venezia Giulia might suggest, this area was a point of contention between two main historical European Powers, the Austro-Hungarian Empire that hold the area of Trieste and Gorizia (the so-called “Venezia Giulia”, part of Austrian possessions since the 14th and 16th century) and the Republic of Venice, that governed Friuli (Udine and Pordenone) since the late 15th century. As a consequence of the Napoleonic Wars and of the Treaty of Campo Formido, in the late 18th century Friuli became part of the Austrian Empire and remained such until 1866, when it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy, whereas Eastern Friuli (i.e. Venezia Giulia) did not become part of Italy until the end of WW1 in 1918.
The romantic cities of Friuli-Venezia Giulia all offer a unique and marvelous setting… would you like your wedding to take place in a romantic historical town located directly on the sea, from whose uplands you will enjoy a marvelous panoramic view, or would you rather enjoy the atmosphere provided by an elegant yet livable city, minutes away from a very romantic bucolic setting and charming wedding villas?
