This is a really nice church placed in the old town of Grado. Inside the church is wide and you can notice the antiquity of the building:roman . It's very impressive

There is nothing to dislike about this atmospheric, ancient and beautiful church. It's dark inside but that just makes the place even more special. It gives a window into the early Christian world that was building these soaring churches in the middle of the Dark Ages.

Beautiful church dating back to the early Christian age. Touching in its simplicity, it should be admired in different hours of the day to appreciate the changing of lights. Inspiring atmosphere.

We took a break from Grado and took a boat trip which took in the lagoons, a fish farm and Bascilica di Sant'Eufemia. The afternoon was a lovely relaxing trip taking in the sights and views. The island was very peaceful and picturesque, the mosaics were lovely as were the stained glass windows.

You must see this. It's free entry and is so old and beautiful it is well worth stepping out of the sun for 15 minutes to look round. Very peaceful.

Being in Grado should not only mean sun,clean beach and sea and fish restaurants, but to deal a little with the history of the place-very interesting as you could seein in wiki:Grado in the past was important (harbour) and a patriarchat."The patriarchate came into being when the schismatic Patriarch of Aquileia, Paulinus (557-569), moved to Grado in the mid 6th...

On 1 June the Linea Marittima Ferry to the Island of Grado opened for the summer season. It takes an hour from the Audace Mole which is located at the sea ward side of Trieste's grand Piazza Unita d'Italia for a return cost of ten euros. There are good views back to Trieste and the Slovakian coast and a toilet... More
