Gorizia

Gorizia has a harmonic historic centre with medieval, bizarre and nineteenth century architecture. The medieval castle, with its well preserved village is a real gem to the town.   From the castle it is possible to view the entire city.
Slovenia is near by, Gorizia and Nova Gorica have now become more or less one city.
