Frecce Tricolori, a visit to the Rivolto Air Force Base.

Frecce Tricolori

Did you know that the Frecce Tricolori (the Italian military aerobatic demonstration team) that are considered a national treasure in Italy have their base in Rivolto, 10 kms far from Udine.

In 2013 there are special opportunities to visit the Frecce Tricolori base that will allow for a day of great excitement and exclusivity for all fans of flight.

This is a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else, only in Friuli Venezia Giulia. It’s something you won’t what to miss!

Villa Manin

Not far from Udine, in the “terre di mezzo” that in addition to the Frecce Tricolori has also hosted the last doge of Venice in the historic Villa Manin and this is where the National Acrobatic Patrol likes to fly in its daily workouts, covering the villa in its tricolor fumes.

For those who participate in the guided tours, they can witness a special acrobatic display that has made the Frecce Tricolori famous all over the world from the nineteen twenties until today.

From May to September 2013, you can experience Frecce Tricolori live but only in FVG!

The tour takes place in the morning in both English and Italian. Tickets must be booked in advance by filling out an online application on the website Turismo FVG
You can reach Rivolto from the tourist information point FVG with a shuttle bus or of course by your own means.

As your day draws to a close why not stop in at the Cantine Pittaro on your way back to Udine. You can enjoy a wonderful visit to the Museo Del Vino. There you can view a very interesting private collection of antique tools for processing grapes. But make sure you don’t leave without tasting the Brut Rosé house wine.
