Between historically significant towns, beach, pizza, pasta & wine, your cycling holiday in Grado will become unforgettable.
Varied tours are guaranteed on the north coast of the Adriatic Sea. Where do you want to go? Along gentle paths in the rural villages on the lowlands? Or into the nature conservation area? And what about a discovery tour through the karst? The main thing: la dolce vita in bella Italia!
Gentle cycling through the lagoons of Grado
Grado – a small town with a lot of history, where bikers‘ hearts will start racing and there’s no shortage of pleasure. Surrounded by the exceptional Adriatic flair, there’s a lot of food waiting to be discovered on a cycling holiday in Grado.
In the bars, restaurants, trattorias and osterias by the beach and in the old town you can try the Fruilan specialities: as well as the traditional pizzas and pasta you must, of course, sample all the varieties of freshly caught fish and seafood.
