Orrido dello Slizza Gorge (Italy)

Just across the Italian border, near the town of Tarvisio (a bit northeast of the town), the small river Slizza forms a short but picturesque gorge. A secured path through it was made already in the middle of the 19th century. Today, you can do a round hike in good one hour. Orrido dello Slizza Gorge is located about 50 minutes drive from Bled.
