    That's entertainment

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The town even had buskers. This blurred shot, taken in fading light, shows the man doing his thing with a piece of string but doesn't allow you to hear the odd music that was coming from his small stereo.

    The parks

    by iandsmith Written Apr 10, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing I noted about Udine was that it seemed to have more green space than many other towns I've visited in Italy.
    Well kept parks seemed to pop up here and there with the occasional odd-angled branch as shown in this picture.

    ...more green space...

    Pink and white, just like blossom time

    This eye-catching Loggia del Lionello (1448-56) has a variety of styles in its Venetian Gothic facade and the two things that stand out are the pink and off-white stone coupled with the intracies of some of the patterns.

    Note the different patterns

    Torre dell'Orologio

    by iandsmith Written Apr 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shining gold hands glistening in the sunlight as the two bronze moors strike the hours on this attractive timepiece from the early 16th century are but one of the distractions in this interesting piazza.
    The Utinenses monument in the foreground is another and the arcaded Porticato di San Giovanni beneath the clock is another.

    Piazza San Giacomo (also known as Piazza Matteotti) is a pleasant square with a raised centre. On Saturday mornings they hold markets there, which is always enjoyable. They also hold concerts here... which must please the residents around the square!!

    Roggia di Udine

    by solopes Updated Aug 25, 2014

    A small ditch crosses Udine, composing a few corners of great beauty. It seems that in medieval times there were six ditches, only remaining three.

    The longest inhabited nucleus of the city is the Castle hill. Today's castle was built after the 1511 earthquake because the old one was destroyed.

    Castello di Udine - it is a pleasant walk getting to the castle from Piazza della Libertà. The castle is now an art gallery. The grounds at the top of the hill provides a lovely view of the city.
