The city of Udine is located in the Province of Udine which is in the Northeastern part of Italy near the border of Austria. It is situated in the Upper Tagliamento River Valley and is surrounded by luscious mountains and greeneries.
Being at the exit point of Italy to countries like Austria and Slovenia, transportation is an important industry this part of Italy. The train station in Udine is as important as any other venue for transportation. Aside from that, iron and mechanical industries thrive in the city.
The Loggia del Lionello is a must visit spot in the city. Of course, there are the usual museums, churches, duomos and other particular Italian sights that can also be seen in other cities. But Udine is not one city to be left behind. As in any other European city, it may be quiet on the outside but people can be seen inside establishments. Restaurants and bars offer the usual Italian and European fare.
Typical of any other place in the country, Udine is another city which shows off Italian architecture preserved for the appreciation of everyone. Of course, there are also modern buildings because Udine is a thriving city. It’s vast land area still has room for further development.
The rich vegetation in the city is one good reason to visit Udine. It may not be as popular as the other Italian cities but it has many things to offer to tourists. The city can be reached via Venice, the nearest city where there is an international airport.
Thank you to Laarni Silva and the officers and members of the Samahang Filipino sa Udine for bringing the Philippine Tapestry group to this beautiful city.
