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.

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