The partners in the SLOWTOURISM
strategic project, which is co-financed within the scope of the Cross-border Cooperation Operational Programme Italy - Slovenia 2007-2013
from the funds for regional development and national funds, have prepared a diverse tourist offer. Slow tourists will be able to enjoy the area
comprising seven Italian regions of the Northern Adriatic (Ravenna, Ferrara, Rovigo, Treviso, Venice, Udine and Trieste) and
two Slovenian regions (Gorenjska and Goriška).
There are numerous slow tourism attractions to be enjoyed as part of the Slovenian portion of the Slow Tourism
project: Triglav National Park
, which is the only national park in Slovenia and one of the oldest in the Alpine area. Visitors to the park can admire crystal clear water courses, deeply cut gorges, untouched forests, and numerous mountain plants, many of which are endemic to the area. Countless paths wind along the park and lead to a myriad of attractions such as the chutes of Tolminska korita, the Pokljuka Plateau, Lake Bohinj, the Savica waterfall and Lake Bled
. In addition to the park, tourists can visit many quaint towns and settlements that boast rich cultural heritage and complement the slow offer in the area: Kranj, Radovljica
with the surrounding villages, and Škofja Loka
with its legendary forests.
The area of the Po River delta features extensive natural and cultural heritage and stretches over two regions (Emiglia-Romagna and Veneto) and three provinces (Ravenna, Ferrara and Rovigo). The area is home to numerous species of birds, which is why it is highly suitable for all types of relaxation tourism.
The area of the Province of Venice is characterised by the duo of water and land and features precious cultural and natural heritage. It offers visitors extensive sandy beaches, lagoons, coastal pine tree forests, towns and, of course, Venice, a city on the water that certainly needs no further introduction.
The attractions of the Friuli area include the city of Cividale del Friuli, which has been listed as a world heritage site by Unesco, Laguna di Marano and countless others. You can take boat trips from Marano along the Natissa River to Aquileia and Laguna di Grado, a famous swimming spot with an outstanding city centre. The eclectic city of Trieste with the Karst where the famous Water Forest is located are always interesting destinations for slow tourism visitors.
