At the crossroad of several cultures

Udine is now the capital city of the cultural region of Friùli (not to be pronounced Frìuli) but its history was marked by many peoples and cultures, which made of modern Udine a mixture of architectural styles.
The first to conquer the area were the Romans; in the Renaissance the town belonged to the "Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia" while in the XIX century it lied under the Austrian empire.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:it has very beautiful monuments and lots of green areas
  • Cons:everything is close from 12.30 to 15.00
  • In a nutshell:if you want to see Venezia and Wien, go to Udine
