This region is situated in the north-east of Italy and borders Slovenia and Austria. Friuli Venezia Giulia overlooks the Adriatic Sea and is surrounded by high mountains, enclosing many different landscapes. The impressive Carso plateau is formed by windswept rocks, and soil erosion created a series of caves, hollows and 'resurgences'. The sceneries of the mountains are spectacular as well, in the Eastern Dolomines, the Carnia and the Julian Alps, among lakes, valleys and protected areas. From its boundary with Veneto up to Monfalcone, the coast is trimmed with lagoons and has long sandy beaches, with several tourist resorts like famous Lignano Sabbiadoro; from Monfalcone to Trieste the coast is rocky. The great variety of landscapes matches a rich and variegated cultural heritage that was determined by a complex history and by the confluence of different civilizations in this territory. For this reason, Friuli Venezia Giulia looks like a small universe with many different traditions: it is the 'land of contrasts'. The provinces of the region are: Trieste (regional capital), Gorizia, Pordenone, Udine.
