Sunday in Cividale del Friuli is a travel blog post about our family’s day trip to stunning Cividale del Friuli in Italy. We visited it in August two years ago. That was our daughter’s first international trip. She was less than 2 years old. It was a pure coincidence that our daughter’s first international day trip was to a town so close to Udine which was our son’s first international day trip when he was less than 6 months old. We all enjoyed our day trip to Cividale del Friuli immensely. It was our first trip abroad during coronavirus pandemic (we had vaccines and it was allowed to travel with a vaccine certificate).

Cividale del Friuli is a stunning Italian town, near Udine, situated in the northeastern part of Italy between the Adriatic Sea and the Alps. It’s quite close to the Slovenian border as well. That’s why we saw some bilingual signs. In 2011 Cividale del Friuli became a part of UNESCO World Heritage Site Longobards in Italy.

My plan was to just walk around the Old town and take in the sights and have ice-cream. Of course, we didn’t visit any museums. That’s a bit difficult with a nearly 2 year old and a nearly 4 year old kids as my kids were at the time of this day trip. I took spare clothes for kids and lots of snacks. It was sunny but then suddenly dark clouds appeared of nowhere and it rained for a short while before it cleared up again. I was very happy with what we managed to see and we even got to have a glass of Aperol spritz while the kids gulped down excellent Italian gelato. We found a free parking site just at the entrance of Old town ( parking in Italy is usually free on Sundays). We strolled down the narrow cobbled streets and found our way to the symbol of Cividale del Friuli-a magnificent Devil’s bridge. ......
