The wind and sea around you will gives a great sensation. I suggest to visit the cathedral and if you arrive around lunch time don't lost the opportunity to taste the monks restaurant. Is quite simple but with best fish assortment you can image.

Highlight of our trip to grado. Its a short 30-45 mins boat ride to this place and surely makes it worth it. Peaceful and lovely inside the church and chapel too. The food at the restuarant is good and worthy of a meal too
