Grado

The last and the most turistic town we visited during our trip was Grado. The town is about 11 km far away from Aquileia and is located in an island. You can find there many historical sights such as three early-Christian buildings, the sixt-century Basilica, mosaics and many other buildings and monuments dated centuries back. Grado (means harbour) is also a modern turistic place with modern hotels, beautiful sandy beaches , lots of greenery and walking trails and numerous good restaurants.
A place, definitely worth to visit.

One among the numerous modern hotels, located alongside the long sandy beach, which has a reputation as the most beautiful in the area around.

The island of Barbana lies in the middle of Lagoon. Main sight of Barbana island is the Sanctuary, originaly dated back to VIII century .
A boat service connects Barbana with Grado in few minutes.

    Several years ago we took the ferry to Barbano from Grado. It was lovely. At the back of the church were many hand drawn pictures of people dying by accidental means. We have always wondered if there was some significance to that. Does anyone know?

    I think I could run away to this island and stay a very long time. gorgeous beaches, striking architecture and of course good ice cream. Seems everything you eat in Italy is delicious, isn't it?

    an interesting page & great pics, Olga ! This pulpit looks really great and very special and finally it would be nice to enjoy some Italian Icecream, as it seems to be the hottest day of the year today in Austria !
