Getting There

Udine can be reached easily from either Trieste, Venice, or Treviso airports. From Trieste there is a coach service to bring you directly to Udine, tickets may be purchased at the bar on the first floor of the airport. If you fly to Venice or Treviso you will need to get a bus to the train station where you can then get a direct train to Udine. For train times consult If you are travelling by car from Austria you will need to take the motorway A23 and follow signs for Udine Sud exit. Many students choose to take the coach service from Eastern European countries, which is a cheaper option, but we would like to highlight that these often arrive very early in the morning and we are unable to welcome students before 09.00 a.m.

The nearest bus stop is in Via Gemona. From the train station you can take buses 1 & 3 that run very regularly in the town center. You can also take a taxi.
