GRADO and AQUILEIA

The charm of a town suspended on the waters, the relaxation of the springs and the greatness of the Roman Empire’s history. Grado is a unique city, joined to the mainland by a narrow strip of land and surrounded by tiny islands that form its lagoon. The beaches are renowned for their fine sane, and the ancient baths of its hot springs make it the ideal destination for those who seek relaxation, but Grado offers many surprises also for those who love art and architecture: along its picturesque streets reminiscent of Venice’s, visitors can discover little gems like the cathedral and the octagonal baptistery. A few kilometers farther north is Aquileia, the ancient Roman city declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, which had Grado as its port and dockyards. A visit to the important archeological area is a must, as is the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, with its impressive mosaic floor that is one of the most complex and best preserved in the world.
