Udine, a city to discover

Udine is certainly not one of Italy’s most famous cities. For the Japanese it is just an insignificant geographical place name somewhere between Venice and Vienna, while Americans often confuse it with the more famous Urbino.  Europeans are often none the wiser, and one finds oneself having to patiently explain where Udine and Friuli, this strange region with its equally peculiar name, is located. ........

Udine ... Tiepolo's city

Udine is known for the work of the last great painter of the Venetian school, Giambattista Tiepolo.

Here the visitor can admire the extraordinary masterpieces of one of the major 18th century European masters, works of such greatness that Udine has been awarded the title of "Città del Tiepolo".

Cultural itineraries

Come to Udine to discover Piazza Libertà, described as "the most beautiful Venetian square on dry land", dominated by the Loggia del Lionello, a splendid example of 15th century Venetian gothic architecture, distinguished by its stripes of pink and white stone. Facing, there is the Renaissance Loggia di San Giovanni, with the famous Torre dell'Orologio (clock tower), an almost exact replica of the homonymous tower in Piazza San Marco, Venice, with two "Moors" who ring the bell every hour.
