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

On a hot sunny day buy a ticket from the hut near the road bridge over the canal to Isola della Schiusa for a boat trip to Barbana. A pleasant boat trip takes just over 20 minutes. There is not much to see on the...More

Rent a Boot and stop by this island while in Grado. It gives an otherwise stictly fun day in the sun an element of culture ...if you and/or your teens are up for it!

Nice boat trip, also for the kids, and a very beautiful small island, which is very good maintained. We're not that focused on visiting a lot of architecture and/or culture POI, but this was the best experience we've ever had. Worth both the money and...More

The best part of the visit is the boat trip, you cross a limited but significant part of the laguna and you reach a silent and peaceful small island, no surprise that the church was built here.
