WINES AND GASTRONOMY
Strolling through the narrow streets, invaded by the scent of gubane and strucchi, the typical cakes of the Cividale area and the Natisone Valleys, baked daily by the pastry shops and artisan bakeries, browsing the windows of the shops on the main streets, you reach Piazza Paolo Diacono and Foro Giulio Cesare, where you can enjoy a moment of relaxation, while the children can play at chases, ride their bikes or have fun splashing around with the water of the fountain.
You could take the opportunity to enjoy a break and decide where to
- taste the extraordinary wines of the Eastern Hills of Friuli: autochthonous wines, such as Friulano, Picolit, Verduzzo friulano, Ribolla gialla, Schioppettino, or those from other wine-growing areas (Merlot, Cabernet, Sauvignon).
- discover the other
typical products of the territory, as well as gubanaand strucchi, starting with the dairy cheesewith its exquisitely Cividale variants, olive oil, an ancient production recovered with the new millennium, craft beer, produced by various small companies and, of course, grappa, for which Cividale boasts a centuries-old historical distillery and a varied local production related to quality viticulture;
- choose to taste the dishes of Friulian culinary tradition: from the inevitable frico with polenta, to the tasty “muset e brovada”, or the legendary salami with vinegar (or the variant with onion), just to mention the classics
Wine bars, restaurants, trattorias, taverns, eateries and farm holiday centres are widespread everywhere in the territory and the zero-kilometre concept is well established
Lastly, if you wish, you will also find many options for an overnight stay, in the city centre as well as in the open countryside: in addition to farm holiday centres, there are hotels, bed and breakfasts, rooms-to-let and holiday homes.
