Aviano ES: Our Community

Welcome to the Community

Benvenuti (Welcome) to Aviano Air Base and the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region of northern Italy! Aviano is a vital link in the NATO defense chain and the premier air base south of the Alps. In fact, Aviano is nestled at the foot of the Pre-Alps or the Dolomities, and is located approximately 50 miles north of Venice, Italy and 9 miles from Pordenone, the largest nearby town. Aviano is unique because we are spread throughout the community in several areas, rather than centralized onto one installation.
