Starting in Venice, the route heads eastwards, hugging the beautiful golden beaches of the Adriatic coast. Heading into the region of Friuli, you will pass sleepy fishing communes and the fascinating star-shaped city of Palmanova before turning south. Crossing the borders of Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, it is hard to find a more fascinating concentration of culture anywhere else along the Adriatic.

Interesting facts
Triglav summiting or how to tame Goldenhorn

Triglav is the Slovenia’s highest mountain, featuring three peaks with the highest one reaching 2864 meters. According to one of the legends, there was a magical Goldenhorn inhabiting the Triglav Mountains. The horns of the mysterious creature were made of gold and would make anyone who caught Goldenhorn forever rich. The Goldenhorn was never caught due to its artfulness in escaping from the chasers, even when injured. The magic power of Goldenhorn was hidden in a divine flower protecting him from deathly wounds. The flower was growing in the crevices of Triglav and boasted unfathomable beauty.
