Gentle rides in the tranquility of the Grado Lagoon and the Friuli hinterland

Easy cycling weekend based in Aquileia, exploring the small and charming villages of the hinterland of Friuli, where the UNESCO site of Palmanova stands out, and the Lagoon of Grado, where beautiful bike paths flanks the sea. On the first day we cycle inland, following bike paths and country roads surrounded by the fertile Friuli countryside, we visit charming villages that feature elegant villas and medieval buildings and the incredible star-shaped city of Palmanova. On Sunday we get to the sea crossing large cultivated fields, following small streams, until we reach Grado, a pleasant town overlooking the sea. The weekend is enhanced by a guided tour of the archaeological site of Aquileia, one of the most important cities of the Roman era, and by a wine tasting in a winery.

  • The unique star-shaped Palmanova, Unesco site
  • The scenery of Grado lagoon

The itinerary follows country lanes flanked by small streams that cross an area of reclaimed lagoon, until we get to Punta Sdobba, where the river Isonzo meets the sea.

We follow a bike path that faces the sea until we reach the large beaches of Grado. We stop in Grado for lunch: the old town is a gem, with narrow and charming streets and beautiful old houses.

On the way back to Aquileia we pedal on a thin strip of land surrounded by the water of the lagoon: that’s the best way to end the weekend.
