About Gorizia

Gorizia is a town in North Eastern Italy which lies on the border with Slovenia. It sits at the foot of the Julian Alps - a sheltered position which gives the town a pleasant mild mediterranean climate. As a result of this Gorizia has become a popular resort. Literally straddling the border, there is a twin ‘Novo’ Gorica in Slovenia which is slightly more modern and ‘racy’ - it boasts several casinos. No passports are required to cross the border.
