DAY 4

UDINE – GRADO – 59 KM

Breakfast at the hotel and departure for the last section of the cycle route, not as challenging but for sure not monotonous nor boring.  Riding along antique villages towards the star shaped town Palmanova, we will encounter several elegant Venetian Villas, like Villa Declani in Selvuzzis and we will reach Aquileia, one of the major Romanesque cities and center of the “Patriarchate of Aquileia”. Free lunch at one of the typical local taverns and then a visit to the fabulous Basilica and the Roman remains. At the end of the visit, departure for Grado passing through the bridge that connects the dry land to the island, crossing the beautiful Grado lagoon.  Hotel accommodation, dinner and overnight stay.

DAY 5

GRADO

Breakfast at the hotel and free time to walk around this beautiful town (where you can also visit some Roman remains or churches), or simply enjoy a relaxing day on the beach. End of services. A chance to discover a unique territory surrounded by mountains and washed by the Adriatic Sea. This suggested tour starts from the mountain down to the sea along the cycle rout Alpe Adria, without forgetting the food and wine aspect that characterized our zone.
