What travellers are saying
- We were really surprised by the beauty of this town as we didn't expect to see so many beautiful houses in Corso Vittorio Emanuele. It is a very long and beautiful street in every aspect: historic, clean and tidy as well as the beautiful shops and nice cafes.Written 25 July 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful even in the fall and only 15 minute walk from the town center. Great place for a walk or a run or to bring the kids. Good mix of modern amenities and local history. There is also a small cafe in the heart of the park.Written 17 October 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- In the Pordenone downtown the are a lot of attractions: churches, places, monument..... But I prefere the enchanting Campanile San Marco.Written 2 September 2019
- This is a simple but impressive piece of architecture located within the old part of the town. It's kind of a reference point too as you can see it from most parts of the town. Try catching it on late summer afternoon to appreciate how a simple combination of local architecture and nature can work up a magical spectacle.Written 16 June 2016
- Simply a beautiful place to visit, full of atmosphere night and day. The area has lovely casual bars where you can quietly sit and watch the world go by.
Drinking late in the evening is the norm here. The red wines are excellent.
Highly recommended.Written 5 September 2019
- The stars of the show here are works by the artist Pordenone, named after the town. Pordenone was a rival to Titian at the height of the Renaissance. There is also a number of beautiful and evocative wooden sculptures of the Virgin and Child. This is a definite 'must see' if you are in the Friulli region.Written 1 October 2017
- My husband and I walked around this park one morning after visiting the market an d we spent quite a bit of time exploring and watching all of the swans and ducks swimming around. The water is beautiful and it's a nice leisurely walk about.Written 16 July 2018
- Piazza XX Settembre is one of the most attended places in Pordenone from local or foreigner tourists.
On Christmas parties or other events organized by public bodies and / or private organizations, the square is animated with stalls occupying the entire surface and offering seasonal or local food, drinks and souvenirs that can attract an immense crowd of visitors and customers.
The Square has no structural or architectural details, as the only building that imposes on the view is the Casa del Mutilato (House of the Mutilate), a horrible structure of the Mussolini era at the bottom of the square.
More interesting are the shops and boutiques that face the opposite side of the square, under a porch that from Verdi cinema leads to Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, the historic and unmissable street of the city.Written 13 November 2017
- I like their sunday afternoon classes for kids. For a relatively small fee, my son is engaged in a science activity for 75 minutes and returns with some "treasure" made out of recycled goods. I think the science center really tries but their displays do not change enough and are not extensive enough to warrant frequent visits. I do take my son fairly regularly to the science sundays classes as an good alternative to my son playing on his video games, etc. while I get a chance to read for a bit. The science center would do well to visit science centers in the states such as the hands on science museum in Ann Arbor, Michigan or the Toronto Science Center in Toronto. The center has some great summer camp programs but these did not appear to get off the ground last year due to lack of participation - the Immaginario Scientifico needs to do more advertising to boost participation/attendance and needs more funding to update their displays more frequently.Written 12 May 2013
