in Summer

Thanks to its position on the border, it is a crossroads of languages and cultures where Italy, Slovenia and Austria meet. The excellent cuisine includes specialities from Friuli, Carinthia and Slovenia.

Tarvisio is also a pilgrimage destination thanks to the charming Sanctuary of the Virgin of Mount Lussari, a place where they say that the Virgin appeared.

For those who love to carry out activities in the open air, the Tarvisio area provides a very wide range of proposals. Near Tarvisio, the Fusine lakes (linked to one another by a charming route), the Montasio Plateau and the Sella Nevea ski area are definitely worth a visit.

In Summer, when the green fills your eyes, you can choose from lots of paths to go trekking, horse riding or mountain biking and reach wide glades that feature Alpine huts and malghe (shepherd’s huts).
Climbers and mountaineers will find imposing peaks to be climbed to fully experience the mountains.
Migratory birds, deer and roe deer find shelter in the Julian Pre-Alps Natural Park, to be discovered through original hikes as well.

Tarvisio and the "Territory"

Surrounded by the Julian Alps and rich in wide valleys and woods – the Tarvisio Forest, with its 24,000 hectares, is Italy’s largest State forest – the town has a modern look but also an ancient soul, full of traditions worth discovering.
