Pordenone

Overview

Elegant villages and natural beauty

An elegant city in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Pordenone encompasses a quiet historic centre rich in historical and artistic beauty. Stroll down Corso Vittorio Emanuele in the shadow of the arcades, among the longest in Europe. Stop for a coffee in Piazza Cavour, the heart of city life, and admire the facades of the Palazzo Comunale and St Mark's Cathedral. It is impossible not to notice its Gothic-style bell tower, a full 72 metres high.

On the outskirts of Pordenone, visit some of the most beautiful villages in northern Italy, such as Sacile, on the Livenza river, and Polcenigo, surrounded by greenery. In San Vito al Tagliamento you can admire what remains of the medieval village, such as the moat and the frescoed castle.

For a relaxing moment away from the city, head for Lake Barcis. This corner of paradise, set in the Friulian Dolomites Natural Park, is the perfect place for those who enjoy sports such as sailing, surfing and canoeing, as well as hiking and mountain biking.

And lastly, to enjoy typical Friulian cuisine, try the Frico with polenta and salami with vinegar: truly traditional flavours.
