925. 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.
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.
