This Charming Italian Region Will Pay You to Visit

SmarterTravel

In case the mouthwatering cuisine, stunning scenery, and ancient architecture weren’t enough to entice you to visit Italy, one Italian region will now pay for your ticket to visit. 

Tucked away in the northeast corner of Italy, the Friuli Venezia Giulia region borders Austria, Slovenia and the Adriatic Sea. Despite the breathtaking Dolomite views, award-winning vineyards, and beautiful beaches, this area of the country doesn’t see nearly as many tourists as more popular regions.

In an effort to draw more visitors to this hidden gem, Friuli Venezia Giulia’s tourism board will refund train tickets for people coming to visit now through May 31, plus throw in a free FGVcard, which offers discounts and free tickets to public transportation and popular attractions.

In order to take advantage of the deal, you’ll have to do the following:

  • Book the package directly through Travel One Tour Operator
  • Stay overnight in a participating property in Grado, Lignano Sabbiadoro, Udine or Trieste
  • Take a Trenitalia train to the region from Latisana-Lignano-Bibione, Cervignano-Aquileia-Grado, Trieste Airport, Trieste Centrale, or Udine.
  • Travel before May 31, 2023.
