Udine, located in North-eastern Italy, is the center of the Friuli Region, sometimes defined as a “jewel between the mountains and the sea”. Historically, Udine was part of the Venice Republic, and the influence of Venetian architecture is clearly seen today on some of its most beautiful buildings.
Udine is very close (and conveniently connected) to interesting tourist locations such as Venice (many conference participants will arrive at Venice airport), Aquileia, Cividale, Grado, and the Alps. It is also close to the borders of Austria and Slovenia. The Friuli Region is also known for some of the best Italian wines.
