Grotta Gigante
Italy

105 min

Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia boasts in many interesting tourist sites but the cave Grotta Gigante is definitely one of the most fascinating. Due to its... exceptionally large dimensions (98.50 meters high, 76.30 meters wide and 167.60 meters long) it has entered in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1995 as the world’s largest tourist cave (this title was lost in 2010 with the opening of La Verna Cave in France). The cave has a breathtaking setting where you can admire the stalactites, stalagmites and other natural compounds formed over the past millions of years. The tour takes one hour and it includes 500 steps up and down, but the impressive beauty that waits for you in “the center of the earth” is well worth the effort.

Standing on a cliff that’s falling sharp into the sea, facing the gulf of Trieste this 19th century castle is truly stunning. The owners, family... of the Princes of Thurn and Taxis, were in the past great patrons of the arts and hosted some famous guests like Mark Twain, Liszt, Strauss, and the poet Rilke. In fact, Rilke loved this place so much that he used it as inspiration for his Duino Elegie and the path from Duino to Sistiana is called “Rilke’s trail”.

Dating back to pre-historic times, the town of Senj is one of the oldest towns in North Adriatic and thus has seen the fall and... rise of many empires. The biggest influence though is the one of Romans that can be traced in archaeological findings such as stone monuments, sculptures of Gods and Goddesses and tomb stones. The symbol of the town is the Fort Nehaj. It was built in 1558 by the famous Uskoks of Senj with the purpose of defending the town from the Turkish and Venetian invaders. Today it houses a museum that exhibits uniforms, cannons and other weapons.
