A marvellous position
This much disputed town stands on the Italian north-east border with Slovenia, in the beautiful Isonzo Valley. This river, known as So?a in Slovenian, was the scene of one of the bloodiest fronts of the First World War, since Gorizia and the nearby Trieste were claimed as part of Italy even though they were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This is one of the reasons why, even after over a century, this city keeps a certain mittel-European mood, perfectly uniting Mediterranean and Balkan characteristics. The Isonzo is an incredible place to relax: there is even a project to build a bicycle path that runs along it from the source, in Slovenia, to the mouth, in the Adriatic Sea. It runs through a big park, the Parco Piuma, where citizens usually go to find a cool spot in the summer, reading a book or even attempting to have a bath in the freezing waters.ViolaSerenaStefanello
