The Carso: A world between Italy and Slovenia

To savor this particular corner of Europe, the Carso, with its caves and unique nature, as well as its country ‘osmizza’ restaurants and its many characteristic villages and towns, there’s nothing more comfortable than the Center Hotel of Basovizza. Its location, on the border between Italy and Slovenia, is in the vast region of Friuli and Eastern Venezia Giulia. The wine regions include the Collio, as well as Trieste, Lubiana and Istria. It’s a perfect point of departure for different daily outings, or as a strategic point for an overnight stay in a longer journey.

The carso

Hills, caves and sunken areas, the Carso is indeed a unique landscape.
From Postojna to Grotta Gigante, it is a succession of hills covered with colorful shrubs and dotted with small and ancient forts under which hides a secret underground world. It is a landscape where the water suddenly disappears into the ravines creating and revealing sharp valleys – a fascinating and mysterious universe.

up

Trieste

The culture of a great little town.
Trieste has always been a ‘bridge’ to Central Europe. Its churches, buildings and monuments bear witness to a rich history of culture and traditions. This mixture of cultures and languages makes it one of the capitals of the 20th century literature. Among these buildings and streets that look towards the Gulf and the Carso, you can still meet up with Saba, Svevo and Joyce.

Sea Passages

Blue as the ultimate horizon.
It is the gulf of gulfs – a large semi-circle full of bays, coves, headlands, cliffs and serene beaches that run from Trieste to the Istrian coast. Walk to the sea, for example along the famous Rilke path or walk to the marinas, promenades, beaches and reefs where you can dive into the infinite.

up

Land Passages

From Friuli to Slovenia walk in perfect harmony
into ancient towns and villages, monuments, art and culture that cross-over two thousand years of history, from the Romans, the Lombards up to the glories of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It’s an area of unspoiled nature, a true wilderness and the goal of many an admirer from far away.

up

Flavour Passages

From wine to seafood, there’s a continuum of flavours.
Be refreshed with cured meats and wines in one of the many osmizze (Carsic Country Inns open by rotation during the year) or be delighted with fresh fish near the sea. Your senses cannot help but love this area.
