Friuli Venezia Giulia and the sites of the Great War

From Udine to Trieste to discover the history and places of the First World War, in a region in which often citizens of a same city fought on opposite fronts.

Trieste, two fronts in one city, was both Italian and Austrian; Udine saw both Italian and Austro-German troops march along its streets; the Redipuglia Memorial is the resting place of many Italian soldiers with Slovenian surnames. These are some of the reasons why in this border region you can understand and learn about the Great War.

The programme

You will arrive in Udine late in the morning. During the First World War, Udine was the headquarters of the Supreme Command of the Italian Army and at the time was known as the “Capital of War”. It kept this name until 24 October 1917, as things changed following the defeat in the Battle of Caporetto. The tour will take you to discover the most significant places of the Great War, such as Piazza Primo Maggio, in the heart of the city. During the First World War, this was where the great military parades – initially of Italian troops, after the defeat in Caporetto, of the Austro-German troops – took place. Lunch at leisure. At 3 PM h, transfer by private bus to Aquileia, one of the most important archaeological sites in Northern Italy. You will visit the beautiful basilica with its mosaic floor and the archaeological site. On the way back, you will stop at a renowned winery where you will have the chance to taste some of its great wines. Back from the winery to the hotel in Grado, where you will check in, have dinner and spend the night.
After having breakfast at the hotel, the bus will take you to the Redipuglia Memorial, the largest military memorial in Italy, built in honour of the soldiers who fell in battle during the First World War. Erected at the feet of Mount Sei Busi, designed by architect Giovanni Greppi and sculptor Giannino Castiglioni, it was inaugurated on 18 September 1938, after 10 years of works. The monument, also known as the Memorial of “the Hundred Thousands”, accommodates the remains of 100.187 soldiers who fell in battle in the surrounding areas, some of which had initially been buried nearby, on Sant’Elia Hill. After the visit to the Memorial, by bus you will reach Dolina dei Bersaglieri, a valley on the Karst Plateau between the altitude of 89 (where the Redipuglia Memorial is) and 118 (where Mount Sei Busi is). Thanks to the “Sentieri di Pace (Walks of Peace)” reconstruction project, today visitors can walk along the evocative paths used by the soldiers during the war. After the visit led by a history expert, you will have lunch (starter, two first courses, second course, fruit and drinks) at an agritourism. In the afternoon, you will meet your guide in Trieste, the most international city of the region, with its glorious past, when it was known as the “Little Vienna by the sea”; today it is a truly cosmopolitan city. Trieste is a city of cultural encounters: for centuries it has hosted the Greek Orthodox and the Serbian Orthodox churches, the Synagogue, the Evangelical-Lutheran and the Helvetic church, the oldest in the city. The afternoon is dedicated to shopping in the historic centre followed by an aperitif in the city centre. Dinner will be enjoyed at a restaurant that offers a meat menu. Back to the hotel in Grado for the night.
After breakfast, you will have time to visit the town of Grado and, if you like, take the boat to Barbana island, which has an old Marian sanctuary. Departure.

Trieste and Maria Theresa of Austria

A great vision for a great city

Three hundred years from her birth (Vienna, 13 May 1717), Trieste remembers the woman who helped the city change and enter the Contemporary Age.
The daughter of Charles VI, who granted Trieste the status of free port in 1719, Maria Theresa ordered the demolition of the medieval walls and united the old part of the city with the new part, characterised by its bustling commerce.
She planned everything from Vienna with great long-range perspective and never visited Trieste.
She created a new city that you will discover following this itinerary, which will lead to the places on which Maria Theresa’s rule had the most impact, but without forgetting the more modern and multicultural aspects of the city.
3 days/2 nights

Canal Grande, borgo Teresiano
Museo della comunità ebraica
Museo Revoltella
ex Ghetto Ebraica
piazza Unità d’Italia

The programme

Arrival in Trieste and check in at the hotel.
Afternoon dedicated to visiting Miramare Castle. Built in the mid-19th century at the bidding of Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg, as a home for himself and his wife Charlotte of Belgium, it is a unique example of aristocratic luxury, which still preserved its original furnishings.
After the visit, back to the city centre. Rest of the afternoon at leisure.
Dinner at a typical restaurant. Overnight at hotel.

Breakfast. Meet with the guide to visit the places in the city that have a strong link with Maria Theresa.
The tour, entirely on foot, starts walking uphill along Via del Monte, were you will visit the Carlo and Vera Wagner Jewish Museum. Its collections include silverware, textiles, documents and books that show how the Jewish community and families lived in the city. The names of important Jewish families from Trieste appear between those of the owners and donors of the objects in the museum, which also hosts a number of very significant historical documents, such as a Pawn Record Book (Libro dei Pegni) of the mid-17 century and the royal charters granted by Empress Maria Theresa in 1771.
The tour continues along Via Capitolina, where you can still see the ruins of the medieval walls, attached to the Round Bastion of San Giusto Castle. This is what remains of the walls that Maria Theresa ordered to demolish. Parts of these walls can also be seen at Tor Cucherna, as the tower was part of the walls that surrounded medieval Trieste. Some think that its name, Cucherna or Cucherla, derives from the German “gucken” (to peep), in fact, in Trieste “cucherle” is the front door peephole.
After a visit to San Giusto Cathedral, back to the city centre, downhill along Via Donota, passing by the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore and Trieste’s first Lutheran church, Beata Vergine del Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary).
Via Donota runs along the back of the Roman Theatre. The theatre, which dates back to the end of the 1st century BC, was extended at the beginning of the 2nd century AD.
At the bottom of the hill, you reach the old Jewish ghetto and Piazza Unità d’Italia, the largest square in Europe that opens directly on the sea.
Lunch at leisure.
In the afternoon, the tour continues with a visit to the Greek and Serbian Orthodox churches and the museum of the Greek-Orthodox community. Above its entrance, below the semi-rose window, on black marble you can see the epigraph with the authorisation to build granted by Maria Theresa.
The name of the area where the Greek and Serbian Orthodox churches are located is called Borgo Teresiano. With its orderly orthogonal and perpendicular streets, it represents a fine example of urban planning. It was commissioned by Emperor Charles VI of Austria, after granting the city the status of free port in 1719; but the actual project was carried out under his daughter, Maria Teresa, from whom it takes its name: “Borgo Teresiano”.
After the visit, a stop at one of Trieste’s renowned buffet for a “rebechin”, a taste of hand-sliced ham baked in bread crust, accompanied by a glass of good local wine.
Dinner at leisure. Overnight at hotel.

Breakfast. Morning devoted to visiting the beautiful Revoltella Museum, one of the symbols of the city. The Revoltella Museum is a gallery of modern art founded in 1872 at the bidding of Baron Pasquale Revoltella (1795-1869), one of the most representative figures of Trieste’s society during the 1800s, who at his death left many of his assets – including his home with all its art collections, books and furnishings – to the city of Trieste.
After the visit to the museum, you can enjoy an aperitif and taste some local products at the recently-inaugurated EATALY (option available on request).
Departure.

Those who visit Trieste from October 2017 will have the option to add or replace a visit of this itinerary to include a visit of the exhibition “Maria Theresa and Trieste. History and culture of the city and its port”, which will open on 6 October at Magazzino delle Idee, in Corso Cavour.

Option to join the group visits arranged by Turismo FVG between April and October (subject to availability and according to schedule).

Option to attend a cooking show at Eataly to learn how to prepare STRUCOLO DE POMI, or apple strudel, an original Austrian recipe.
