Day 4: Udine and San Daniele del Friuli
Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to Udine and free visit of the historic centre of the city which is often defined as a people-oriented city.
An historic centre similar to a living room, with welcoming squares and surrounded by outdoor bar tables. The city is dominated by the hill on which the ancient castle stands, now home to the civic museums. Udine is also the city of Tiepolo and Tina Modotti. To admire the works of the Venetian painter, it is essential to visit the Galleries of the Patriarchal Palace, as well as admire the Assumption on the ceiling of the Pureness Parish, in Duomo Square.
The memories of the photographer who was born in the Friulian capital and became famous in Mexico are scattered in various places in the city. But it is worth visiting Udine even just to walk along its beautiful streets without a specific destination. Most of the streets of the historic centre are enhanced by the arcades or the ancient drains still visible in the city. We recommend an aperitif in a typical Friulian inn (tajut). Free lunch.
In the afternoon it will be possible to walk along the road of the castles and the ham to reach San Daniele del Friuli (km 23). Free visit of the town (Guarneriana Library) and to an ham factory with the possibility to consume a dinner with a menu based on ham, of course. Return to Udine for overnight stay at the hotel.
