Flights Launching This Summer from Budapest to a Picturesque Italian Region
Starting June 2, Ryanair will operate a direct flight from Budapest to Trieste, the center of one of the most exciting regions of Italy, twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, the Friuli-Venezia Giulia regional tourist office announced.

Sandra Battigaglia, representative of PromoTurismoFVG’s press department, said that this part of Italy is the closest to Hungary, with sandy beaches and mountainous hilly countryside with excellent wine-growing, reports

The region’s millennia-old historical-cultural heritage reflects the influence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire as well as the traditions of Balkan, Mediterranean, and Venetian Italian culture.

As she pointed out, those who choose to fly from Budapest can expect to arrive at a small airport with its own railway station, which serves passengers quickly and is only 30 minutes from the region Friuli-Venezia Giulia’s center, Trieste, and other major towns of Udine and Gorizia.

Veronika Pertot, B2B Area Manager for PromoTurismoFVG, spoke about the active leisure opportunities in the region from the Adriatic coast to the mountains of the Alps.

As she noted, the region always offers something to suit both individual travelers and groups – not only in terms of water sports, exploring the world of lagoons and caves, but also hiking and mountain biking.

The most challenging stages of the Giro d’Italia international cycling race run through this region, she added. The race takes in landmarks such as Palmanova, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the finest examples of medieval Venetian military architecture, and Grado, which has been awarded European Best Destination 2024 for its high quality beach.

Two other UNESCO World Heritage sites are also worth visiting in the region: Aguileia and its basilica, a center of ancient times, and Cividale del Friuli, the namesake of the region.

Udine’s many restaurants and shops offer seafood and quality wines, and Trieste, a town with many attractions recalls the heyday of the monarchy.

Famous poets and writers, perhaps most famously James Joyce, author of Ulysses, used to frequent the town’s cafés overlooking the sea.

From here, you can also visit Miramare Castle, and Duino Castle, a castle on the Trieste Riviera, built on a cliff.

Hungary Today

Online since 2014, this source states its aim as "to provide a complete, unbiased picture of Hungary”. It continues by acknowledging this “does not necessarily mean that our writers do not have their own opinions, sometimes reflected to a degree in the articles they publish”, and it's really worth readers keeping that in mind. Another stated aim is to become ‘the leading English-language news portal of Hungary’, a position held for 20 years by good old independent XpatLoop! Still our team has no issue with positively highlighting one or two useful articles published by Hungary Today here with permission for your interest.
