Multifaceted road trip through Italy

The Germans like to travel to Italy, where the climate and landscape, culture and history, food and the sea all try to outdo each other. If you're traveling by car, you do not need to get that far to Rome or even Calabria to enjoy all this. A beautiful, versatile, but unfortunately somewhat underrated region is already in the extreme northeast: the provinces of Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
