A small gem in the heart of Friuli Venezia Giulia
The heart of Friuli and a gateway to a special world, where an ancient language is spoken. Elegant palazzos and charming streets, with "the most beautiful Venetian square on the mainland", are watched over by an ancient castle. The hill it was erected on is said to have been built by Attila to allow him watch Aquileia going up in flames.

Gateway to culture and tradition
Udine, Loggia del Lionello
Udine, a small gem in the heart of Friuli Venezia Giulia, offers you a genuine experience: It is the gateway to a culture expressed through unusual, ancient traditions.

Admiring the façades of the historic palazzos, enveloped in a special atmosphere and surrounded by people chitchatting in Friulian, the local dialect, is a sensation you can only find here.

From Piazza Libertà, recognized as “the most beautiful Venetian square on the mainland”, richly adorned by the Loggia del Lionello and the Loggia di San Giovanni, you walk under the stunning Arco Bollani to reach the castle complex, today housing the Civici Musei, the town museums.

Legend has it that the castle was erected on a hill built by the Huns to enable their warlord Attila to watch the spectacle of Aquileia going up in flames.

A walk through history
Do go for a stroll along Via Mercatovecchio, where the market was held in ancient times. In between fashion shops and ancient trattorias, you can admire beautiful noble palazzos, such as Palazzo del Monte di Pietà with its richly decorated Baroque chapel, lined with valuable gilded leather painted panels.
 
Arriving in Piazza Matteotti or “Piazza delle Erbe” is a magic moment at any time of the day: The charming palazzos embracing this “town salon” overlook the market in the morning and bars teeming with people at night.

How about a "tajut di blanc o di neri"
Udine, Torre dell"Orologio
Visitors to the town should make a point of visiting one of the many osterias located throughout the historic centre. Enjoy the experience of ordering “un tajut di blanc o di neri”, a glass of white or red wine, accompanied by a crostino with flavours from Friuli Venezia Giulia, and you may even hear the typical greeting “Mandi”! This will give you an idea of the unusual character of the Friulians.
 
The modern, bustling town is still dotted with countless osterias “like they were in the olden times”; they often feature a fireplace where chestnuts are roasted in winter, or friends get together for a game of cards. The atmosphere is warm and cosy, there is a friendly rapport with the owner and you feel like in your own home. A good time to go to an osteria, to get to know the local habits and experience Friulian hospitality, is just before mealtimes, when the locals meet up for an aperitif.

City of Tiepolo
Udine is also known as the “City of Tiepolo”, as the great eighteenth century artist spent an important period of his life here, as one of Patriarch Delfino’s guests. In Friuli Venezia Giulia, Tiepolo evolved towards a more captivating naturalism and a brighter palette, reaching what is defined as the period of his pictorial maturity.

His creativity came alive in Palazzo Arcivescovile, embellished by a spectacular cycle of frescoes, and in the Duomo, where the famous artist frescoed the Cappella del Santissimo Sacramento. The Oratorio della Purità houses one of Tiepolo’s greatest masterpieces and is well worth visiting.
