Northeast Italy

Over the Brenner to the Adriatic Sea.

South Tyrol has castles and mountains aplenty, the Friuli region feels like a small section of Central Europe, and the Veneto is all about majestic villas and, of course, the water. The Brenner Pass, the most used passage into Italy from the North, is also called the “Gateway to the South”. The climate in the pale, chalky southern Dolomite Alps is mild, with warm breezes and ample vegetation announcing the arrival in the South of Europe. There have always been routes and roads over the natural passes and through the valleys of the Alps down towards the Adriatic Sea, into the legendary Venetian Republic. The borders in northeast Italy have been moved so often that this is truly a multi-lingual region, with German spoken in South Tyrol and Slovenian in the karst region behind Triest, alongside Italian.
