Founded by Julius Caesar in 50 b.C., Cividale is truly an enchanting little gem in the region's eastern foothills, known for its famous Devil's Bridge, mysterious Celtic Hypogeum, ancient Lombard Temple as well as its lively atmosphere that you can breathe strolling around the narrow cobble stone streets leading to the enchanting Main Square. Cividale is also the capital of the Colli Orientali wine district, and therefore well known for its top wines, great food (Gubana is a delicious local specialty, a type of strudel with apples, pine seeds, raisins and grappa) and close position to the finest wine cellars of the region!
