Ancient Cividale perched above the River Natisone is a gorgeous place to visit with pretty squares, romantic winding streets, the dramatic Devil's Bridge and good places to eat local food. If this were in Tuscany it would be infested with tourists but we visited in high season and there were no crowds. If you are interested in getting a different... More

We were there for only two days (one night). It's a lovely place, but it was enough to discover all of the important places.

It is a hidden gem - the place in enlisted on UNESCO world heritage site list. The best part is that there are very few tourists :-)

We went to Cividale on July 28, 2016 as a family of 4. I brought the entire family for the 1st time and they loved its unique medieval charm. From the spectacular Ponte Del Diavolo to the cobblestone side streets, this town is unspoiled by tourists. Worth an afternoon to explore its quiet and ominous Celtic, Roman and Lombard history.

Nice little city in nortern italy with a hostoric center. Info center is nowhere pointed at and there are parking lots in the middle of the historic center, ruins the scenery. Old bridge is the highlight. Visit of you pass by. But don't bother going a long ride of your track

A wonderful town, definitely worth factoring into any itinerary, the wine is superb (and cheap), the ancient town is a treasure (and car-free) I stumbled upon it and am so glad I have. Stay a few days, soak up the atmosphere and get perspective on life! Tourist info were really helpful too, I usually don't bother asking for advice but... More

A lovely historic town the main attraction being the beautiful river and bridge that spans across it there are 98 steps down to the river but worth doing the water is crystal clear some days there is a local market in the square. Worth a half day visit if in the area.

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is worth a visit. The stone bridge across the river into the city itself is a good photo opp, and there are many other old buildings and narrow streets that make this old town romantic. It is not very big, so a couple of hours would suffice if you want a quick... More
