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.

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

Grado is a beautiful part of northern italy that should not be missed. Great beaches, golf clubs, marina, restaurant and ancient city. Basilica di Sant'Eufemia is a beautiful example of mosaic and art, the Baptistry dates back to late 5th century and the bell tower the 15th century. I really enjoyed the natural beauty of this place and highly recommend... More

One of the biggest examples of early mosaics. Quite interesting is the Christ was symbolised by a cook which was fighting with a turtle.
