Friuli Venezia Giulia On The Road
All motorcyclists, at least once in their life, must have dreamt of America.
Breathtaking landscapes, endless roads, sea, mountains, rivers, large cities and villages in the middle
of nowhere. Hundreds and hundreds of miles, days spent riding your motorbike to enjoy all these marvels.
However, perhaps not everyone knows that there is a region that offers just as much variety,
the sea and the mountains can be reached from any starting point in a couple of hours at the most.
This is Friuli Venezia Giulia, a borderland with thousands of different facets.
Just 150 kilometres to go from the golden beaches of Lignano to the mountains on the border with Austria,
crossing historic towns, unspoilt rivers, wonderful hilly territories and roads deep in the countryside.
A land to be crossed by motorcycle, enjoying the landscapes and the scents that change continuously,
like in a dream. Whichever setting you prefer, you will find it here.
So, why choose, when you can have everything? Have a nice journey!

In the limited distance of this tour we will
find many of the most beautiful and best
preserved castles of Friuli.
The first is the Castle of Susans, which
can be seen from several kilometres
away in its splendid banked access
staircase. Proceeding in the direction
of the Mount of Ragogna (rich in tourist
paths that follow the paths of the First
World War) you will enjoy the views from
the rise in all directions. We suggest that
you drive along the hairpin bend that goes
down towards the castle and that allows
to follow the course of the Tagliamento
river as far as the bridge of Dignano.
Some more bends and you will be near
the Castle of Ragogna.
Preceded by a small church that includes
an old, charming graveyard, you will
find, standing on the mount, the Castle
of Ragogna. Splendidly renovated, it is
used as a centre for conferences and
cultural events of various kinds. A few
steps from the Piazza del Comune it
is also possible to visit the First World
War Museum. Many are the monuments
proposed by the tour, in particular in
San Daniele del Friuli where you cannot
miss a visit to the many ham factories
that often include spaces for tasting and
retailing. A point of great interest is the
historical Guarneriana Library, situated
in the town centre under the loggia. It is
Friuli’s most ancient library and one of
the first institutes of public reading in
Italy. You will also find many taverns and
inns that propose typical local menus,
always accompanied by the best wines
from the Collio area. The visits continue
in Arcano Superiore, a spectacular
village with a medieval atmosphere, you
will have the feeling you have ended up
in a typical Tuscan postcard landscape.
The Castle of Arcano can be visited on
weekends but if you are lucky (the owners
are often there) you can have a walk in
the garden around it, without booking.
Proceed towards Fagagna, one of Italy’s
most beautiful towns, of whose Castle of
Fagagna unfortunately only a few ruins
have remained (the most ancient part
dates back to the 11th century) and the
famous Cjase Cocel (Museum of rural
life). From now on every village has its
stronghold.
Villalta, whose castle, belonging to
the homonymous lords and already
documented in the early 13th century,
often staged harsh battles owing both
to its strategic position and to the
turbulence of its owners. In 1453 it was
enfeoffed to the Torre Valsassina family,
who enlarged it significantly, above all
with the construction of the imposing
Renaissance wing close to the ancient
donjon.
The Castle of Moruzzo, originally ruled
over by spouses depending on the
patriarchal gastald of Fagagna, in 1200
part of it was enfeoffed to Odarlico di
Tricano. Still of private property, it is
used partly as workshops and partly as
a residence. The donjon on the hill is
surrounded by large walls, spaced out by
small battlemented towers.
The construction of the castle of Colloredo
di Monte Albano was started in 1302; it
will be enlarged over the centuries, yet
undergoing a slow replacement of the
defence characteristics with residential

An itinerary on roads followed various
times by the caravan of the Giro d’Italia,
with the finish of the stage on top of Mount
Zoncolan, at a height of 1750 metres
above sea level, the hardest climb in
Europe. You will travel along streets and
cross towns that propose typical products
from Carnia, such as Tolmezzo, which is
in a very favourable position: the valley,
in fact, is crossed by the road, which
existed already in the Roman age (known
as via Iulia Augusta), and which through
the Monte Croce Carnico Pass leads to
Austria. Proceed towards Villa Santina,
whose old station, where some scenes
of the film Black Feathers with Marcello
Mastroianni were shot, is worth seeing.

A tour out of the most travelled routes
across “hidden” valleys characterized
by depopulation following emigration
in the years between the 19th and the
20th century, until the industrialization
age; this trend stopped after the 1976
earthquake, also following the ferment
brought about by reconstruction, various
wonderful examples of which can be
admired. It is an extremely varied and
picturesque route amid woods, streams,
lakes and interesting natural sites, such
as the caves of Pradis, the Covera canyongorge, etc. Among the most interesting
sites, Anduins with its sulphurous
sources, Poffabro (one of Italy’s most
beautiful towns), Frisanco with Carlin’s
miniature museum, Primo Carnera’s
villa in Sequals, where there are some
photos of his past as a motorcyclist.
The itinerary then goes back to the west
part of the Tagliamento river, where we
suggest that you visit the Fortress of
Osoppo before ending the tour: the site
features interesting remains dating back
to Prehistory, as well as the defence
complex that was the last resistance
against the Habsburgs before Venice.

Then there is Ovaro, whose Parish Church
of Gorto, situated on a hillock to the north
of the hamlet of Agrons, was mentioned
for the first time in 1119, but derives
from a 4th-century complex. On the road
you will find characteristic places like
Bordano, the town of butterflies with its
famous zoological museum. You will then
run along the Lago dei Tre Comuni (Lake
of the Three Municipalities), a green pearl
set in the Carnic Pre-Alps and, on the way
back, you will also cross the famous Arta
Terme, an important spa town.

of the region and certainly with a high
density in the hilly and mountain territory,
an area where until 1989 (the end of the
Cold War) were two thirds of the Italian
Armed Forces. Start from the Fortress
of Col Roncone, which dates back to
1913 but has been recently renovated,
then proceeding towards the Fortress of

ones. Richly decorated by Giovanni da
Udine in the mid 16th century, the famous
small studio of the Castle of Colloredo
is one of the most significant artisticdecorative examples of the Region. The
castle is also well-known because the
writer and follower of Garibaldi Ippolito
Nievo lived here in the nineteenth
century; he is the famous author of Le
Confessioni di un italiano. It is the seat of
the Comunità Collinare del Friuli (Friuli’s
Hilly Community) and of the Consorzio
per la Salvaguardia dei Castelli Storici
del Friuli Venezia Giulia (Consortium for
the Protection of Friuli Venezia Giulia’s
Historic Castles).
The Castle of Cassacco (which dates back
to 1202) in the Middle Ages was contended
several times by many feudal families,
among whom the Savorgnans, who had it
for alternate periods. In the Middle Ages
the castle, perhaps due to its structure
or to its position, was not considered
very important from a strategic point of
view. It was only grazed by the bloody
facts of arms that affected most of
Friuli’s fortalices: for this reason it was
not seriously damaged and maintained
its castle aspect almost unchanged.
Last, but not least, the Castle of Treppo
Grande, which dates back to the second
half of the 12th century and is documented
as belonging to Heidenrico de Zelaco. The
Zegliaccos became powerful, but in the
14th century the patriarch deprived them
of their titles (which they later reacquired,
but they died out around the end of the
fifteenth century). The large complex of
the castle will soon be restored to how
it was before the earthquake of 1976.
The tour will then go back to the starting
point, Osoppo, where you will find the
homonymous fortress. Always a crucial
point in the defence from invasions
that went southwards, it became very
important in the Celtic and Roman ages.
Many significant events took place at the
stronghold, among which the Lombard
defence against the Avars, the defence of
Venice against the Austrians in the War of
the League of Cambrai, etc. It also staged
various fights during the First World War.

The tour, which starts and ends in the
wonderful setting of the Fortress Town of
Palmanova, which is also called the starshaped town, explores a large variety of
landscapes that describe the many facets
of the territory in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Travelling towards the sea you will get to
Aquileia, which at the end of the 4th century
was the fourth town of the Roman Empire
owing to the importance of its offices
and institutions. An open-air museum,
Aquileia would need some days to be
explored and admired in all its beauty.
Going more south, you will be driving on
a strip of land surrounded by the Lagoon
of Grado, and the effect is definitely
extremely charming. Although motorcycle
tourists will be attracted by the beach,
by the many spa services and by the
historical heritage, such as the Sanctuary
of Madonna di Barbana, the tour will
continue towards Monfalcone. From here,
20 km of level and wide roads, in some
stretches surrounded by the lagoon and
in some other stretches by green fields
where our sight gets lost on the horizon.
From time to time you will see some huge
cottages with large agricultural machines
that contribute towards giving the feeling
of open countryside. Once in Monfalcone
the landscape transforms. Driving past

shipyards, you will proceed towards the
province of Trieste. From green, gentle
plains you will pass to the sharpness of
the Karst rocks that surround the roads
towards the next destination, the castle of
Duino. Here bends are in rapid series and
always on perfect asphalt. Watch out when
entering Duino, the roads get narrower
and traffic is intense. The castle is worth a
visit during this interesting tour. Proceed
towards Gorizia, on the border with
Slovenia. This banked road is rich in views
of rare beauty and the ups and downs with
nice bends will make the journey lively.
From the centre of Gorizia, going north
towards Cividale, the landscape becomes
softer in the gentle ups and downs of the
Collio, rich in vineyards. If you are keen on
the history of American motor sports, you
are suggested to make a short detour on
the SS351 road, in the direction of Farra
d’Isonzo, where you will find the Ford
Gratton Museum, dedicated to Henry Ford,
where you will have the chance to admire
a reconstruction of the first assembly line
in the history of car making, that of the
legendary Ford T of 1913, as well as an
endless series of vehicles coming from
Fo.Mo.Co. Here Paolo Gratton, a historic
dealer of the brand, has set up the first
and only Ford Museum existing in Europe.

centre, proceed towards Udine. About
fifteen kilometres more to the south-west
you will cross Buttrio with its beautiful
Dragon and Toppo Florio villas. From here
on you will cross small towns like Percoto,
Trivignano, Clauiano and Sottoselva,
before reaching the point of arrival of
the tour. We would like to mention the
plenty of taverns that offer tasting of DOC
(Denomination of Controlled Origin) wines
in Clauiano. After crossing the Porta
Cividale Gate, in Palmanova, you will get
back to the starting point after travelling
140 km.

Getting from Lignano to Marano by
circumnavigating the lagoon is a matter
of a few, long stretches of road, but the
desire to explore the Italian everglades
makes us look for (and choose)
secondary roads. From Viale Europa
turn into the SS354 road up to the traffic
lights of Pertegada, where you will turn
right. Follow the course of the Stella
river crossing small groups of houses
and farmhouses, followed by towns like
Precenicco and Pescarola, as far as the
crossroads with the SP56 road where,
turning right, you will proceed towards
Palazzolo and as far as Muzzana del
Turgnano. At the roundabout take the
first exit in the direction of Via Palazzolo,
immediately followed by Via Levada. We
are again in open countryside. In this
stretch of road the buildings are scattered
and the lagoon gets closer and closer.
Turn left at the first bridge, proceed as
far as the crossroads with Strada Bosco
Bando and go south. You will see the
first houses of Marano Lagunare as you
enter the town. You can stop anywhere
and visit the Canal Novo Valley Nature
Reserve around you, or keep driving up
to the last available stretch of asphalt
road, practically a strip of land on the sea.
Here you will see the typical straw casoni
huts, a typical building of the lagoon. You
have various options to go back: follow
the same roads backwards or follow the
main roads, in any case crossing Muzzana
and Palazzolo, then proceeding on the
SS14 road and on the central SS354 road,
which will lead you back to the starting
point, Lignano Sabbiadoro.

LATISANA
From Lignano Sabbiadoro (viale Europa)
we will choose an alternative route
to reach the wonderful Villa Manin in
Passariano di Codroipo: skirting the
Tagliamento river travelling on the
border between Friuli and Veneto. At the
roundabout go towards Bibione along
Viale Tagliamento and, once you have
got near the overpass over the river, go
straight on in Via Volton, in the direction
of Latisana. Keep going up along the river
across the open countryside of the Basso
Friuli area, often alongside pleasant
grassy embankments. Along the SP7
road you will cross Latisanotta, Ronchis
and Fraforeano, then turn left into the
SP39 road in the direction of Codroipo.
The road is smooth and is always
bordered by large countryside areas. You
will cross the small towns of Canussio,
Madrisio, Varmo, Roveredo, Rividischia
and Muscletto, up to San Martino, where
you will leave the SP39 road turning right
towards Villa Manin. The last spectacular
straight stretch of road, called “Stradon
Blance”, leads straight to our destination,
the residence of the last Doge of Venice.
Napoleon Bonaparte lived here for about
two months in 1797. We will go back
towards Lignano Sabbiadoro: from Villa
Manin head east turning into the near
SS252 road, commonly known as Strada
Napoleonica. About ten kilometres
before turning right towards Flumignano,
more precisely towards the hamlet of
Sant’Andrat. Go on until reaching a dirt
road, towards the beautiful Mondelli
Stable: a real wood and stone ranch/pub
surrounded by nature, which is much
appreciated by motorcyclists and where
you can refresh yourself and, if you wish,
go for a horse ride as well. The last
stretch of this motorcycle tour crosses
Castions di Strada, where you will turn
into the SS353 road as far as Muzzana
del Turgnano. Drive past Palazzolo dello
Stella up to the large intersection with the
SS354 road, which you will have to follow
as far as the point of arrival.
