Let's enjoy Fine And Unusual Museums in Friuli-Venezia Giulia...

The ancient Roman town of Aquileia lies close to the Gulf of Venice in the multicultural region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Unfortunately the no ancient structures remain above ground.

The city of Trieste was THE port of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This multicultural city joined Italy in a 1954 Memorandum of Understanding, the last territorial adjustment of World War II.
