Tarvisio belongs to “Comunità Montana della Valle Canale e Canal del Ferro”.
Tarvisio (German and Friulian: Tarvis, slovenian: Trbiž) is a town in Italy located in the northeastern part of the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the Province of Udine, at the border both to Austria and Slovenia, in the Val Canale. The town has a population of about 5,500 and is located about 750m above sea level.
Its origin is Roman but previously it had been inhabited by the Taurisci – a Celtic population.
As the rest of the Val Canale, the town was mostly Slovenian-speaking in 1918, but today both Slovenes and German-speakers are only a minority compared to Italians.
The roots of Tarvisio date back to Roman times. Up to 1918, it was part of Carinthia. It is located upon ancient trade routes and also had considerable importance because of nearby mines.
For a long time, Tarvis benefited economically from people coming from Austria and Yugoslavia for purposes of shopping. Today, tourism and winter sports have become important industries, for which the Karavanke, the Carnic Alps and the Julian Alps offer good opportunities.
Lago di Fusine are in reality two connected lakes ( down and up ) in the mountains of Tarvisio.
This picture is of the upper lake which is around 950 metre above sealevel.
The lakes are very close to the Slovenian borderline.
