Friuli Venezia Giulia, screaming ascents
This region is situated in Italy's northeast and borders Slovenia and Austria.
Friuli Venezia Giulia overlooks the Adriatic Sea and is surrounded by high mountains, enclosing many different landscapes.
The impressive Carso plateau is formed by windswept rocks, and soil erosion has created a series of caves, hollows and resurgences over time.
The mountain sceneries of the Eastern Dolomites are truly spectacular: the Carnia and the Julian Alps, in addition to the lakes, valleys and protected areas.
Carnia by bicycle
The mountains of Carnia are a paradise for cycling and mountain biking. Lovers of road bikes can count on beautiful and well articulated trails through the woods. For mountain bikers, the sweetness of slopes ensures mule tracks as well as well maintained paths. The Giro d’Italia has discovered these roads and its stages have already entered into the history of cycling. The ascent of the Zoncolan, the hardest in Europe, has become an international symbol of the great cycling.
