From the tip of the lagoon of Venice to the former gateway to the world of the Austro-Hungarian Empire

We pass through Italy to the east and visit the western tip of the Venetian lagoon. The tranquil Chioggia with its canals invites you to linger. We then head north to Udine with its delightful old town. The day ends at the former Austrian naval port of Trieste. Here you can feel the influence of the Danube monarchy especially through the architecture.

Limousine

Friuli & Istria

1 day

Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian’s paradise Miramare & Adriatic coast of Istria

Some of the planned activities

Not far from Trieste, Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian (younger brother of Emperor Franz Josef and later Emperor of Mexico) fulfilled the dream of a unique country estate right by the sea – Miramare. You can still feel the “spirit” of this historic place. Then we drive briefly through Slovenia to Pula in Croatia. Pula was the second important port of the Danube monarchy, since it was home to the K.u.K. Kriegsmarine (Imperial & Royal Navy). After visiting the Roman amphitheater, we enjoy the drive along the Adriatic coast and reach Opatija in the afternoon – Italian Abbazia, German Sankt Jakobi. Hard to believe this place could be achieved in the 1910’s by train faster than now. Opatija was THE summer resort for Austrian high society on the upper Adriatic. The name of the waterfront “Kaiser Franz Josef” is just one of the countless testimonials from this period.

Bled Island & Grossglockner High Alpine Road

Some of the planned activities

We leave Croatia heading north and visit the small town of Bled with its lake in Slovenia. With a traditional plette we cross over to the small island and visit its landmarks. If you like, you can climb the church tower and take a unique view of the surroundings.
Afterwards we do not approach the roof of the world but at least the roof of Austria, the Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain.
On the Großglockner high alpine road it goes to Kaiser Franz Josef Höhe where you can enjoy the view of the glacier called Pasterze.
One of the most extraordinary experiences is a sunrise on the Grossglockner. We do not want to withhold this from you and so we spend the night on the Edelweißspitze at 2500m above sea level. Early in the morning you can enjoy a huge panorama with the rising sun (weather permitting). The ascent to the Großglockner is only permitted in good weather.
