Map and touristic guide of UDINE town in Friuli
(Europe – Italy – Friuli Venezia Giulia region – province of Udine - homogeneous area of Udine and countryside)
  Udine is one of the Middle Europe provincial capitals born and settled in a long history of cultural and, often, political autonomy: at first in the Aquileia’s Parliament (953-1420 a.C.); then as capital of Friuli nation within the Venice Republic (1420-1797); finally, in the state of Italy from 1860, as second town (today with 100.000 inhabitants) of the region Friuli Venezia Giulia (autonomous since 1963).
  They are three historical periods that you can see, going around in the town (in the streets drawn with yellow ochre colour), concretized in the most important buildings and monuments, as in following list under the map.

- the urban structure of the streets whole around the Castle hill;
- the Castel Hill (which lonely comes out of the flat country offering very nice views in all directions toward mountains and the sea) with S.Maria Church of 1200 with frescoes and the famous wheathervane angel (town symbol) upon the tower, the Houses of the Confraternita (Brotherhood) 1400 and of the Contadinanza (Pleasant society) 1500, Palace-Castle of 1500 with municipal museum;
- ancient houses in Borgo Gemona;
- three gate-towers at North, Centre and South of the ancient town;
- the main religious buildings: the Duomo (1200-1400-1700) and S.Francesco of 1200 (now exhibition hall).

- several palaces (Archbishop’s one with religious art museum; Province’s one)
- two very nice squares: Libertà with Lionello’s and S.Giovanni’s open galleries; San Giacomo with the church having the same name;
- the churches: Monte di pietà chapel of 1600, Manin Chapel, Beata Vergine del Carmine of 1700 with frescoes and sarcophagus of 1300 in Borgo Aquileia; the sanctuary-monastery of Madonna delle Grazie of 1500-1700 at East of the large square-garden Primo Maggio
- the pictorial heritage (Udine is the town of Tiepolo whose the Purità chapel, beside the Duomo, preserve several frescoes, as also the Archbishop’s Palace)
- the evocative places (in via Gemona, in the Centre and in via Grazzano) where flows the ancient irrigation ditch.

  You can see some neoclassical palaces of 1800 and other scattered minor buildings in Art-nouveau style, the new Theatre, the Ossary temple of 1931, the Events Centre, the University, the Fair, International mechanical sciences Centre, the renowed High Schools.

  However very interesting are three traditional activities of the people of Udine:
- RETAIL TRADE very appreciated also by tourists for the fine selecting capability and affable business proposition of its operators;
- COOKING hot and cold that you can find very good in elegant cafès, osterie and restaurants which are superb presenting the gastronomic culture of all Friuli (both in the recipes and in the high level ingredients)
- ARTISTIC CRAFTS which renovate with creativity the precious heritage of celtic, roman and lombardic ancestors.  
  The historical centre of Udine is easy to run through also with the car: it presents a square design (with sides 2 km long) subdivided in fore squares by two main ways North-South and East-West; there also are two ring roads: an external one, very easy to run, with two lanes; and an internal one with 1-2 lanes, less simple but intuitive.
