We got up and had breakfast with Michelle and Paul who are taking care of the cats and house for us. We left around 10 AM. It was a beautiful day for our first road trip. We had no issues on the trip. We had decided to break up the long drive to Austria with this one night stop in Udine in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy. It is the most northeast province with the Adriatic sea to the east and the Dolomite mountains and the Carnic Alps to the north and west. They are spectacular mountains.
Our hotel, the Allegria, is in the Centro within easy walking distance of the sights. We had hoped to eat dinner in our hotel which has a well thought of restaurant but they are closed on Sunday evening, as are a lot of other ones. We did a little research and decided on Pepata di Corte, a seafood restaurant.
Tomorrow, onward to the Austrian wine region for three nights.
