Welcome to Tarvisio

Tarvisio is famous for its historic Saturday market, which has long attracted day trippers from Austria and Slovenia and is now open during the week too. It has a definite border-town buzz, though since the advent of Schengen, the trade is mostly in dubious-looking leather jackets.
