If you are thinking of holidays with your children, consider the beautiful island of Grado. Beautiful all year round from April to October you will find many things to do. Of course, don’t forget to bring your bicycle with you or you can easily rent it in the center from “Mauro bike”, the Scaramuzza shore in front of the embarkation for Barbana, or in Piazza Biagio Marin you will find RIDEME bicycles.


Also for the 2020 edition of ComuniCiclabili FIAB #Grado obtained the maximum score of 5 bike smile, together with Bolzano, Cesena, Ferrara and Schio. From Grado starts the famous Alpe Adria cycle path that connects us to Salzburg but on this blog you will find many more or less long and demanding routes to do with your family. From the island you can reach Aquileia and its splendid ruins, Palmanova and go around the ancient walls, Trieste and Lignano by combining ferry and bicycle for a unique experience. If you prefer tranquility you can easily pedal to the nature reserves of the Cavanata and Cona Valleys, all on a cycle path. If you prefer not to move, enjoy a splendid ride along the beach with a playground and aperitif stop enjoying a well-deserved relaxation.


Grado is famous for its beach, perfect for families as the water is never too high and always calm. Children can have fun along the bathroom dryers without any problem. The beach is sandy and you will find all the amenities, a part of the beach is free but a very large part is free. Since 1989 it can boast the Blue Fee Flag to guarantee the purity of the water and the high quality of the services. Near the paid beach you will find the water park with a large garden with trees where you can relax, a swimming pool with sea water with slides, whirlpool, trampolines and swim-up bar. We highly recommend taking your children to the rose park where they can go wild on games suitable for all ages. The trip to Barbana, an island in the Grado lagoon, home to an ancient Marian sanctuary, is very interesting, you can opt for a picnic under the trees or a lunch at the pilgrim’s canteen. The ferry leaves every 20 minutes and the ticket costs 6 euros return.


Grado offers an unassumed tranquility to spend wonderful hours with your children. Large beach, large pedestrian area and many playgrounds. Wherever you can find time to return to being a couple while always being with your children. Typical clubs and beachfront establishments offer many alternatives. Do not miss a visit to the Basilica of Sant ‘Eufemia dating back to the fourth century, located on the square of the ancient patriarchal city, flanked by the baptistery and the spire bell tower of the fifteenth century. All around the ancient and well restored historic center winds.

Grado hosts families and bicycles all year round and I recommend if you come to visit us at NONSOLOVELA.
