    Udine

    August 8 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Udine ist eigentlich nur ein Zwischenhalt auf unserer Reise westwärts nach Slowenien. Sieht aus wie jede andere Kleinstadt in Norditalien, von denen wir in einer Woche bereits einige gesehen haben. Wir merken langsam, dass das ständige Reisen sehr anstrengend sein kann. In Slowenien werden sir wohl einige Tage am selben Ort bleiben, um aufzutanken.Read more

    Udine

    July 20, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Nach den letzten anstrengenden Tagen ist nun Entspannung angesagt! Ein Tag in Udine mit Bummeln, Espresso Tasting und super leckeren Buffalo Mozzarella. Genau das richtige zur Wiederherstellung. Wir merken wie stark der Tourismus hier leidet. Die Straßen sind weitgehend leer und wo immer wir hinkommen werden wir durch herausragenden Service bedient, inklusive Limoncello Variationen als Dessert aufs Haus - um 13:00 Uhr... Prosit! 😅👍Read more

    Italy, Udine.

    June 28, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Today was check out day, and not surprisingly the massive storm that raged all night was still going this morning which made loading the car a bit tricky. Apparently this kind of weather is common in Lake Como at this time of year. This entry (and tomorrow's) are going to be short and boring. We are spending these two days driving to Vienna where we stop for 3 days. On leaving Lake Como we had hoped that once we cleared the mountains that form the "bowl" of the lake that we would be past the worst of the storms. That theory held true for a few hundred K's and I am now sitting in our hotel room in Udine listening to the thunder. It's not cold though. I drove about 440k's today to get here, all of it on autostrada, so not hard driving, just boring. The town of Udine is north of Venice and I wish I could tell you that it is a pretty river town, with lots of trees and gorgeous old buildings. Roger went for a walk through the old part of town and it actually looks quite interesting. We only here for the one night, same type of journey to get to our next stop tomorrow . The hotel we're staying in? Unremarkable, although, I'm always a little suss when I first open the door to the room and I am overpowered by the artificially floral smell of cheap air freshener.Read more

    Udine

    August 7, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    After breakfast we checked out of the hotel and walked to near the railway station to catch the "Flix" bus to Trieste at 9.50 am. We had pre-purchased tickets. The almost 2 hour bus ride from Ljubljana was comfortable. There was wifi on board. We arrived in Trieste shortly before noon. We left our bags at the luggage storage and then changed some money. We bought some baguettes to share on the train for lunch. With a minute to spare we managed to board the train in time to Udine.

    We arrived in Udine 1.5 hours later. From the railway station it is a short walk into the historic centre.

    Udine is a city in northeastern Italy. Although it is a large city it is rarely visited by tourists. Surprising, given its splendid buildings. It was early afternoon. Most of the shops were closed and the streets practically deserted. We walked up to the hilltop Udine Castle which is home to several museums and an art gallery with works by Tiepolo and Caravaggio. From there we enjoyed the views of the city and surrounding mountains. The central Piazza della Libertà has Renaissance buildings, including the pink-and-white-marble Loggia del Lionello and a clock tower. We passed by several churches including the Udine Cathedral which has a baroque exterior.

    It was only to be a quick visit. We headed back to the train station to catch the 3.08 express train back to Trieste.

    From the railway station it was a 10 minute walk to our overnight accommodation. After settling we headed out for supplies including washing powder. Upon our return we loaded up what we thought was the washing machine with our dirty laundry only to discover in fact it was a dryer. Jeed spent over an hour cleaning up the mess and cleaned clothes by hand. Not a happy bunny. After happy hour we went to a nearby restaurant "ristorante pepenero pepebianci". It was a lovely restaurant in a restored 19th century horse stable. Food and wine were superb. The complimentary Prosecco was a nice touch.
