Italy is an incredible country, known for delicious food, stunning wine regions, a variety of unique landscapes, historical cities and much more. I spent 6 years living in the small town of Sacile in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region and have included all the best places to visit in northern Italy in this travel guide.

All of these northern Italy cities would be a great addition to any Italy itinerary.

The Regions of Northern Italy

Northern Italy is made up of 8 different regions: Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. The landscape in Northern Italy is unique because the expansive Dolomiti Mountain range covers the majority of the land that borders Germany and Austria. As a result, many of the villages and towns that lie below the Dolomites are nestled within valleys including where I lived for 6 years in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region.
