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.

It's a long and steep walk up the hill from the Piazza Liberta to the Castle, which gives spectacular views of Udine and sunrise if you get your timing right. The Castle is more about the fortifications than the building itself, which contains an unexceptional...More
