Create an itinerary including Udine Castle
One of the city's most emblematic structures, Udine Castle sits on a hill in the center of town. Modern scientists contest that the hill is of artificial origin, probably dating back to the Bronze Age. The castle itself was built in the 16th century on the ruins of an older fortress. On the ground floor you can visit two museums, with notable works of art by the likes of Tiepolo, Caravaggio, and Carpaccio. The third floor contains another museum dedicated to photography. Other collections stored inside the castle, including one dedicated to numismatics, can also be visited by special appointment.

  • We didn't go inside but it was a lovely view from up on the hill and there's a great legend about a barbarian king who made the hill to overlook a battle.

  • Very cool location. Steep walk up but worth it. This sun clock is actually at the bottom, at piazza. Easily walked thru in an hour. Bonus tip - you have a restaurant and a public restroom at the top of the hill!
  • Definitely this is the place where you need to come if you are in Udine. The old Town and the Castle looks very good. From the castle hill you have a view to pretty much 3 sides of the Town.
