A charming and historical town, Cividale del Friuli was founded by Julius Caesar in B.C. period, but dates back from prehistory. As an Unesco site, the Gastaldaga is one of the seven sites that reflect the achievements of the Germanic tribe of the Longobards, who settled in Italy during the sixth century and established a Longobards Kingdom which ended in 774 A.D.

From the spectacular Ponte Del Diavolo to the cobblestone side streets, this town is unspoiled by tourists. Worth an afternoon to explore National Archaeological Museum, Duomo, Celtic Hypogeum, churches, refined palaces, or explore the enchanting landscapes that surround it.

P.S. Don’t try to park in the town centre as there is plenty of parking around the perimeter and the entire town is walkable.
