Grado — 1 day

Stretching over an island and peninsula in the Adriatic between Trieste and Venice, sunny Grado may seem like a typical seaside resort town.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Sat): pause for some serene contemplation at Sanctuary of Barbana Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, appreciate the history behind St. Euphemia's Basilica, then take an in-depth tour of National Archaeological Museum of Aquileia, then take in panoramic vistas at Bell Tower of Aquileia, and finally don't miss a visit to Archaeological Area of Aquileia - Roman Forum.

Rome to Grado is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Traveling from Rome in August, Grado is a bit cooler at night with lows of 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can fly back home.
