Friuli Venezia Giulia Car Rental

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is located in the north-eastern part of Italy and is made up of the historic regions of Friuli and Venezia Giulia. It is a special region where different identities coexist, as a result of the different people who have inhabited it.

A borderland between Western and Eastern Europe, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is a place where diverse cultures meet and merge, an exceptional mix of languages and traditions that have given it a Central European atmosphere where the Roman past mixes with the Hapsburg past.

Visiting Friuli-Venezia Giulia therefore not only allows you to immerse yourself in a land of great cultural and historical variety, but also to travel through a geographically rich territory, capable of combining mountains and hills with a coastline made up of sandy shores and important seaside locations.

Friuli-Venezia Giulia on the road: the towns and villages to see

If you are thinking of taking a trip to see the historical and natural beauty of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, then a car is the best way to explore the region, because it will allow you to travel the length and breadth of the region in complete autonomy.

Your point of reference for renting a car in Friuli is the Maggiore Offices, located both in the Trieste capital, and at Ronchi dei Legionari Airport and the New Maritime Station, and in Viale Europa Unita, Udine.

With Maggiore you can enjoy a comfortable and safe on-the-road trip because all our rental vehicles are equipped with every comfort and carefully checked and sanitised.

Once your car is ready, you can set out to discover the most beautiful cities in the region, starting with Trieste, which offers places of great interest such as Piazza Unità, the Molo Audace, the most famous promenade in the city, and the Miramare Castle, located 10 km from the centre. Drive 50 km to Gorizia, where you can breathe in the atmosphere of a border town, walking through its beautiful piazzas such as Piazza Cavour and Piazza Vittoria.

Resume your on-the-road trip by heading to Udine, located in the centre of the historical region of Friuli and known above all for its majestic castle dating back to 1517, which today houses the Civic Museums, and for the characteristic Piazza della Libertà in Gothic-Renaissance style, over which opens the Loggia with the Tempietto di San Giovanni, surmounted by the Clock Tower and flanked by the Bollani Arch.

Also worth visiting is the Duomo of Santa Maria Annunziata, built in 1735, which houses valuable works of art such as the altarpieces by Gianbattista Tiepolo and Giacomo Martini, and Palazzo Patriarcale, home to the Diocesan Museum and the Tiepolo Galleries.

A 50-minute drive will take you to Pordenone, an interesting medieval city that will surprise you with the beauty of the Duomo of San Marco, which houses important works of art such as the frescoes in the Chapel of San Nicolò, the Loggia Comunale, a 13th-century building with a magnificent astronomical lunar clock, and Palazzo Ricchieri, which houses the Civic Art Museum.

Your itinerary must include Grado, a charming town between the sea and the lagoon, Aquileia, also known as the “Second Rome” due to the importance of its archaeological area, a UNESCO site since 1998, and Palmanova, a spectacular fortress town founded by the Republic of Venice in 1593.

If you love the mountains, don’t miss a trip to Tarvisio, a meeting place of Latin, Slavic and Germanic cultures, which will captivate you with its natural beauty such as Mount Lussuri and Lake Predil, and to Piancavallo, the ideal starting point for exploring the Friulian Dolomites Nature Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Moving from the province of Udine to that of Pordenone, don’t miss Cordovado, a small jewel in Western Friuli where you can see Palazzo del Capitano and the Church of San Girolamo, Poffabro in Val Colvera, with its typical stone and wood houses, and Polcenigo, renowned not only for the beauty of its castle, but also for the unique charm of the Gorgazzo Spring.

Known for its mountains and cities of art, the region also has a beautiful coastline full of popular seaside destinations.

You can start your journey from the best known, the beautiful Lignano Sabbiadoro with its 8 km long coastline surrounded by a magnificent pine forest and then drive 35 km to reach Marano Lagunare, a seaside village set in a unique natural environment.

From here, you can easily reach Grado, a municipality situated on an islet with sandy, well-equipped beaches. If you want to see something unique, park your car and head for Banco d’Orio, a long, unspoilt sandy beach washed by a crystal-clear sea to the south.

Going down the coast you can stop in Sistiana, where you will find sandy beaches and small coves, and then proceed to Grignano, a seaside resort known for the beauty of its coastline and the Miramare Marine Nature Reserve, until you reach the border with Slovenia where the beaches of Muggia, located a short distance from the town, await you.

Sea, mountain, city of art and ancient villages: this and much more awaits you for an unforgettable holiday in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
