Worth the walk

We didn't go inside but it was a lovely view from up on the hill and there's a great legend about a barbarian king who made the hill to overlook a battle.

Nice park and view

Some meters higher than the town, with a nice view over the city. The mountains at the horizon were visible as well. Worth to go there.The castle itself is not very interesting from the outside, the little church with gothic frescos closed for renovation.

Interesting mix of history and art
Oct 2019 • Solo
I enjoyed this mix of archeological museum / renaissance art / Italian history. Not all exhibits have explanations in English but most were still very well represented and accessible despite my basic Italian knowledge. The view from the castle is beautiful and worth a visit.

Nice view

Worth to climb up to Udine castle at least for the nice view on the whole city. Inside there are various museums (we didn't visit them). On the hill, also S.Maria di Castello church, with its nice bell tower.

Best place in Udine
Jul 2019 • Family
After a short walk from Piazza Libreta you can enjoy the best view on the city. The castle itself is like many other in Italy

Nice castle with great view
Feb 2018 • Friends
We passed by the church of S Maria in Castello which was closed, and reached the top where the castle is located. Rather than an actual defensive structure, the castle is more like a renaissance palace and holds a few museums inside, which we unfortunately had no time to visit.

Interesting exhibits, great view

A hike up the hill on the edge of the historic center brought me to the Castle Museums. Crowning the castle was a weather vane of a golden angel. The field beside the castle afforded a view of the Alps, hazy in the distance.
The Museum of the Risorgimento, the 19th Century resurgence of Italian cultural and political identity, was well-done. Although the explanatory texts were only in Italian, it contained a lot of artifacts. I especially liked the propaganda posters and magazine covers from 1918.
Despite its somewhat misleading name, the Museo de Arte Antica housed a good display of art from the 13th through the 18th Centuries, with most of its emphasis on the latter three. There were plenty of saints and rosy-cheeked angels. The Hall of the Comune (the large meeting room) included a Tiepolo ceiling and some handsome frescoes.
Having accessed the castle by climbing up the steep hill from Maggio Park, I took the gentler colonnaded brick lane down to the Piazza della Libertà, where a school band was playing patriotic songs in the loggia. Udine was clearly more an authentic community than a tourist destination.

This is a lovely short walk, go behind the museum for a large grassed area with good views back over the town

Worthy Castle and View
Jul 2018 • Solo
The whole castle complex is interesting but the view is even better. There are shops and place to eat up there as well. While steps are not a killer you can get a weekend shuttle bus.

Fantastic
Jun 2018 • Couples
This place is such a gem. It’s well worth walking up to the top to get a great view of udine. The museum is fantastic too. Outside on the terrace is a lovely cafe serving coffee wine and food and we were just about the only people there. They have free concerts there in the summer. Don’t miss it.
