Day trip to Grado. Feb 19, 2018
Grado is an island situated 52 km from Trieste. It is linked to the mainland by two bridges.

One of the highlights of this town is the basilica of saint Euphemia. It has a beautiful mosaic pavement which covers almost the entire floor surface. This church dates from the end of the VI century. It was built on the site of a previous basilica built between the IV and V centuries. Beside this church there is a baptistery which dates to the fifth century. Some meters from the church you can see the basilica of saint Maria delle Grazie. It was built at the end of the VI century. This church was built over another one of the V century. It is smaller than the basilica of S. Euphemia and houses a beautiful colourful Madonna.

Once you visited the churches and the baptistery you could have a stroll in the town center. The old core of Grado is made mostly of stone houses. Grado has narrow streets (calli), small squares (campielli) as in Venice. but there are not channels there. You can wander in the center of Grado for at least a couple of hours or maybe more.

There are even some Roman ruins in this town.

Grado has also a small marina.

I went to Grado from Trieste by bus. I took a bus from the bus station in Trieste to Monfalcone. Once in Monfalcone I crossed the road and I took a bus to Grado.

The bus station in Grado is in piazza Carpaccio; which is just a couple of streets from the harbour.
