Wondering if anyone is familiar with the Carso Region between Venice & Trieste, and can share their experiences.
While we wait for international travel to resume, I've researched some "off the beaten path" destinations for our next trip to Italy.
The Carso Region, apparently virtually overlooked as a tourist destination, has registered here as worthy of consideration, for perhaps a 3-4 day visit as part of a longer Italian, or European itinerary.
It looks to be a blend of Italian, Germanic, & Slavic cultures.
Hiking on hillsides overlooking the Adriatic, walking on trails linking numerous towns, unique regional wine, castles to explore, a rich folk history, & sampling a network of local taverns (i.e. "osmizas"), are among the rewards that await the curious traveler.
With a bonus of freedom from hordes of tourists.
Would appreciate hearing about towns that are "must see", travel & lodging tips, any potential language issues, the ease of traveling here, etc.
Thanks in advance!
