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.

Nice view from tge boat abd the island as well, worth the price. But check tge schedule, they are larger gaps at midday, abd there are not that much spectacles except the church to see there.

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

Having had our visit to Grado, it was a surprise to discover the boat to the island. The lagoon was flat calm and the crossing very pleasant. We had about two hours before the next boat back and that was fine for us. The main...More
