“Beautiful and historic”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

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.

“Grado is not only beach & fish”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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 century. But in their reunion with Rome in 606, a rival office was set up in Old-Aquileia. Aquileia later entered communion with Rome but was able to keep its independence and title from Grado. In 1451 the see of Grado was merged with Castello to form the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice."
Of course Sant´Eufemia ism not Sant Oeter in Rome,but because of history and architecture
weill worth visiting

“Day Trip by Ferry from Trieste to Isola Grado”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

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 on board. The island itself offers miles of busy sandy beaches and a small local fishing village with an historic (links back to the Empire) church featuring a mosaic floor. The township is now geared for tourism but has retained its unique small village appeal. It was a sunny and although not many were in the water I took the opportunity to swim out to the permanently moored bathing platform. We used the public library to obtain local maps and info. The official tourist info centre was hard to find and quite a walk from the Grado wharf where the Ferry docks. We should have made a plan to locate it on the map before we travelled.

“Grado island and Basilica di Sant'Eufemia”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

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 a visit.
