This is one of the most beautiful basilicas I visited. Dating back to ancient Roman times, wonderful mosaics and it gives you a sort of feeling and understanding, what early christianity might have been.

A classic Roman Basilica. The only thing special are the beautiful mosaics on the floor. Very simple temple.

And the Basilica di Sant'Eufemia in the heritage town center of Grado is worth at least a honourable mention. A severe church on the outside; the Basilica is impressive on the inside. No specific tourist spot, as Grado is more sought out for its waterfront and beach, the Basilica is quiet inside. To be admired are the pulpit, altar and... More

It is a nice place to visit. I really like the spirit of the city and it's great place for weekend runaway especially in spring. In the center of the town there is an old Basilica which is interesting to visit and just around the corner there is street with some nice restaurants.

This is a beautiful VI century church built on the rest of a Roman building. The interior is severe. There are beautiful Roman mosaics on the floor and the columns along the nave come clearly from more ancient structures. There is a fantastic "ambone" the platform from which the priest preached, in Moresque style. The mosaic pavement around the main... More

As a precursor to our visit to the basilica in Aquileia this gave us the taste for what was to come. Just gorgeous

The town of Grado is best known for its beaches, but this gem of paleocristian church sits, mostly unnoticed, a few blocks from the seafront promenade (well worth a stroll all by itself). The area is a pedestrian island (centro storico); parking in Grado is mostly metered, but there are areas on the northern side of town where one can... More

I've been here for several masses and it has a very particular atmosphere, I recommend a visit during the day but if you have time come in the evening.

Very beautiful setting and nice murals on the ceiling- if you are looking for ornate decoration inside you will be disappointed but there are nice mosaics on the floor.
