The sea of Central Europe and the charm of history
Suspended between sky, earth and sea, also called "Island of the Sun" for its south-facing sandy beaches, Grado, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, is one of the richest Italian seaside towns in history and rises in the middle of the northernmost of the lagoons of the Adriatic Sea.
The city is internationally known as a health resort, as well as a prestigious seaside destination, which developed at the end of the 19th century during the Habsburg Empire. As evidence of the ancient and important history of the city, not surprisingly also known as the first Venice, today you can still admire three well-preserved jewels: the Basilica of Santa Eufemia, the elegant Baptistery and the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The historic center is a picturesque labyrinth of calli and campielli, with traditional architecture dotted with stone and brick walls, narrow external stairways, balconies (balaor) and characteristic chimneys (fugher). An urban fabric that has remained almost homogeneous and unchanged over time, the typical face of a northern Adriatic seaside village.
Clean and safe waters, golden sand, constant breeze for the sails, sea water spas, excellent fish cuisine.
Grado, an ideal oasis for your beach house.
