• Portopiccolo
  • Overview

    Nestling in the beautiful Duino Cliffs Nature Reserve in an area known as the Karst, a sweeping limestone plateau of natural beauty, the little-known and car-free coastal village of Portopiccolo is about a 25 minute drive from the historic port and regional capital of Trieste and around two hours north of Venice.

    At the heart of this picture perfect village is a glamorous, redeveloped marina home to the exclusive waterfront five star resort Falisia, as well as bars, restaurants offering the very best in Italian cuisine and an array of elegant fashion, art and design boutiques, a serene spa, and a beach club next to a white pebble beach lapped by crystal clear waters. Holidays here are for those in search of peace and tranquillity in an exclusive waterfront setting.

    Sights

    As well as a whole host of trails and paths to explore in the surrounding landscape, around a ten minute drive from Portopiccolo is the sleepy seaside town of Duino, home to an ancient castle and the starting point for the beautifully scenic Rilke Trail. The ancient UNESCO-listed town of Aquileia with its medieval Basilica housing an exquisite and extensive mosaic floor is a 40 minute drive away and the region’s cultural capital Udine, can be reached in just over an hour. The regional capital, Trieste, with its grand avenues and elegant architecture is great for a day of exploring, whilst nearby is the fertile land of Collio Friulano with its gently rolling hills and historic vineyards to discover.
