by Alta Macadam, Annabel Barber
This easy-to-carry guide includes the city of Udine, with its masterpieces by Tiepolo, and the great Adriatic port of Trieste, on the border of two worlds, the Italian and the Central European. Here too is the charming town of Cividale, with its vestiges of Lombard culture, and Aquileia, a fl ourishing outpost of the Roman Empire and seat of an early Christian patriarchate. Reminders of Venetian rule, of Napoleonic occupation and of bitter fi ghting in the First World War are also to be found in this region of fertile plains, snowy alpine peaks and lively seaside resorts. This is also the home of some of Italy’s finest food and wine.
