A pearl among the pearls of Cividale, this UNESCO heritage town.
Cividale del Friuli, is most famous for its Longobardi history. It has a past which is more exciting than its sleepy present-day atmosphere suggests. Cividale’s official history begins in 50BC, when the town was settled by the Celts but made official by Julius Caesar and called Forum Julii.
Now a Unesco World Heritage Site, Cividale del Friuli has plenty of history and art to offer its visitors together with some excellent traditional food and world-renowned wines.
