Udine was first mentioned in a document in 983 AD, as one of five castra (Latin word for “military campground”) that emperor Otto II donated to the Patriarchs of Aquileia, Rodoaldo. In 1420, Udine was definitively conquered by the Republic of Venice, which had already extended influence over the area through the Savorgnan family.

Udine remained part of the Serenissima Venetian republic, which settled a  Lieutenant General for the “Patria del Friuli” (Friuli Homeland) and, later in 1483, the home of the Friulan Parlament. In 1797 Udine was given to the Austria Empire with the Campoformido Treaty. The city was conquered by French in 1805, and then it was conquered by Austrian again in 1813. During the insurrections of the Italian Risorgimento, the city rebelled, but was forced to surrender on April 22 to the troops of General Nugent. Udine was finally part of Italy in 1866. During WW I, the city hosted the headquarters of the Italian army high command until the Caporetto battle. Italian troops regained the city during the final attack on November 3, 1918.The most ancient monument in the city is a basilica with three naves, with restored frescoes of the thirteenth century – Santa Maria del Castello. The ancient part of the Dome belongs to the Gothic era, as many churches and palaces. Contarena Square (now Libertà Square) has a great harmony, being dominated by the hill of the Castle and on the other side by the Loggia Palace, also named Municipality Palace (1456), San Giovanni porch with the Clock Tower, San Giovanni chapel and Bollani Arch, probably by Palladio. In the city there are paintings by Giovan Domenico Tiepolo (frescoes in the castle, in the dome, in the ArchBishop’s Palace).

If you like wine you should visit the Collio region (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collio_Goriziano). Collio Goriziano or Collio is a Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) located in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, in the province of Gorizia near the border with Slovenia. The region is predominately a white wine producer with Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc being the leading varietals. Red wine is produced under the Collio Rosso designation and is usually a blend of Merlot, Cabernet franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
