    Galerias Bardelli: Zara... of course

    by solopes Updated Jul 20, 2014

    We were almost leaving Udine, and I was seriously worried, because Fernanda couldn't find one of her "monuments". How could it be? How could Udine escape "H&M", "El Corte Ingles", or any other giant of that universal shopping culture?

    And suddenly... I lost Fernanda. A brief tension, browsing around, and, at last, the relief! There it was, just around the corner, "Zara's palace" with free entrance, and a smell that I couldn't notice, but strong enough to attract her from distance.

    Galerias Bardelli, was stated at the door, that I didn't cross, but she came out in peace.

    Get a bottle of Grappa

    by sierralyndon Written Oct 29, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Friuli is famous for its wines and grappe. In fact, Friulians have a reputation for enjoying more than their fair share of alcohol :-)

    Try some of the local grappa - a very strong (40%) drink. You can ask for a shot of it in the bar or buy a bottle as a souvenir. Some of the more famous brands are Nonino and Domenis.

    UDINESE STORE: A piece of football magic

    by sierralyndon Written Sep 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Udinese football team is in the Serie A of the Italian soccer league, and is currently playing in the Champions League. Not at all as glamorous as AC Milan or Juventus, Udinese Calcio plays excellent football (according to many experts... and my not-so-impartial husband from Udine!). Your chance to show off your knowledge of Italian soccer, by displaying something from a lesser known team, instead of your typical Milan, Inter or Juve t-shirts.

    On Via Mercato Vecchio right in the centre of Udine you will find the Udinese Store where you will be able to get official merchandise. Look out for the distinctive black & white motifs.

    What to buy: T-shirts and all sorts of merchandise.

    Gubana - local cake

    by sierralyndon Updated Sep 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When in Friuli, you must try the local "gubana", a delicate fruit cake that is realyl yummy. Many coffee shops serve slices of them, or you can purchase them whole in various provision stores.

    There are various brands of gubana, but I made the trip to the Gubana della Nonna headquarters in the Friulian mountains to make my purchase from a quaint little shop.

    There are some very good quality shops in Udine. Start from Via Mercato Vecchio and wander into the roads leading to Piazza San Giacomo (also known as Piazza Matteoti).
