Excursions from Lignano
Travel through time and space discovering the surroundings
In a day of clear sky, when the “bora” (North-Easterly wind) blows or even after a summer storm, go up on the top floor of the Aparthotel Esperya and admire a wonderful view, that from the sea of Lignano Sabbiadoro will take your eyes to the Dolomites and the Julian Alps. Here you will see the setting of a glorious past, where every little church, hill and island preserve precious memories of a great history.
Within an hour’s drive, you may visit the ancient ruins of Aquileia, one of the most important commercial, political and development of Christianity of the Roman Empire. To the north lies Cividale, cornerstone of Lombard rule in Italy.
Along the coast you will discover Grado, Marano and Caorle, cities that bear the marks of the barbarian invasions, the escape of their inhabitants, of rich trade with the Byzantine Empire and of the glory of the Republic of St. Mark, when Venice ruled the Mediterranean.
During your holiday in Lignano, you cannot miss a visit to nearby great cities such as Venice, Trieste, Verona and Treviso. And we can also suggest you to discover the hidden traces of our history even outside the major tours, through countries and towns with small wonderful treasures. We will be happy to suggest unforgettable itineraries and excursions, most of them less than an hour’s drive from the beach of Lignano Sabbiadoro. You will find information material at our reception.
