Sacile is the “gateway city of Friuli,” and with its elegant Venetian architecture reflected in the placid, transparent waters of the Livenza River, it has earned the title “Garden of the Serenissima.”
The old town center spreads along the banks of the river, with its noble palaces of Piazza del Popolo, the Municipal Loggia, the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, the little Church of the Pieta, and the 16th-century Palazzo Ragazzoni with its magnificently frescoed interiors.
We recommend completing the city tour with a river excursion along the Livenza River.
For lovers of nature and good wine, we recommend a bicycle tour in the Sacile countryside, in the footsteps of the ancient worshippers, to discover medieval Sacile and its rural treasure chests that hold precious frescoes.
St. Gregory’s Hospice and the ancient village of Topaligo are worth visiting. Notable is the small church of St. Daniel, which houses valuable 14th-century frescoes inside. Vistorta is home to the small and lonely country church dedicated to Our Lady of Grace, built in 1014. You can also choose to visit one of the wine estates.
In September in Sacile there is the “Sagra degli Osei”,which began as a market for various goods, and through the centuries has specialized in poultry market and bird gear.
