The "garden town" with its Mitteleuropean essence
The "garden town", abounding with tree-lined avenues, elegantly expresses all its Mitteleuropean essence. Due to its mild climate Gorizia was chosen as a residence for Hapsburg functionaries, hence its name the "Nice of Austria".

Mitteleuropa in the late 19th century
Gorizia, Teatro Verdi
Gorizia is a melting pot of different cultures and today it is a “garden town” welcoming its visitors to its tree-lined avenues and stately villas.

The layout of Gorizia"s streets and edifices, its churches adorned with their characteristic onion-shaped domes, and the atmosphere in its coffee houses are all a constant reminder of its Mitteleuropean matrix. Wandering along its main avenues, Corso Verdi and Corso Italia, admiring the historic villas in their spacious gardens, you can feel the late 19th century atmosphere, which gave Gorizia its name as the “Nice of Austria”, residence to Hapsburg functionaries who chose to live there for its pleasant climate.

A home for the rich and the famous
Many of the historic palazzos offered hospitality to illustrious people. You can trace the steps of the legendary Casanova, or breathe in the creative skills of Goethe and Goldoni in Palazzo Lantieri.

The Gorizia palazzos also offered hospitality to the powerful and mighty, among whom were Pope Pio VI, Napoleon and Charles V.

Once war scenery, now a land of extraordinary vineyards  
The castle is a symbol of the town and its original historic centre with its charming hamlet. It offers a stunning view of its splendid surroundings, with a marvellous panorama of vineyards, as well as of the territories still scarred by the trenches from the two world wars: real historic wounds you can visit at the battle sites.

You can go for a wonderful walk around the castle’s exterior walls as far as the Torre dell’Orologio, the bell-tower, where the armigers did their rounds.


For half a century, Gorizia was the symbol of the cold war, crossed by the “iron curtain”.

Gorizia, Collio
Piazza Transalpina was physically divided by a wall until 2004 and today you can still walk across it with one foot in Italy and the other foot in Slovenia: undoubtedly a unique experience, which only Gorizia can offer.

The city has also been an important town in Italy’s more recent history, experiencing moments of sadness, but also of great joy, images which can be seen as you walk in its streets and squares, listening to the locals’ stories.

Gorizia: the museum town
This is a real leap into history, enhanced by visits to the museums, including the Museo del Medioevo Goriziano and the Musei Provinciali di Borgo Castello adjacent to Casa Tasso and Casa Dornberg, which house important permanent collections, such as the Museo della Grande Guerra, the interesting museum on world war I, the Collezione Archeologica, the Museo di Storia e Arte and the Museo della Moda e delle Arti Applicate, the only museum on fashion and the applied arts of its kind.
