Grado — 4 nights

Stretching over an island and peninsula in the Adriatic between Trieste and Venice, sunny Grado may seem like a typical seaside resort town.
Explore Grado's surroundings by going to Gorizia (Viatori Park / Garden of the Azaleas, Cidin Eddo Pastry Shop, &more), Saint Elia Hill (in Fogliano Redipuglia) and Tiare Shopping (in Villesse). Spend the 13th (Sun) exploring nature at River Isonzo Mouth Reserve. The adventure continues: appreciate the history behind St. Euphemia's Basilica, make a trip to Stazione Transalpina, take in the spiritual surroundings of Military Memorial Redipuglia, and play a few rounds at Grado Golf Club.

Gorizia is a town and comune in northeastern Italy, in the autonomous region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. It is located at the foot of the Julian Alps, bordering Slovenia. It is the capital of the Province of Gorizia and a local center of tourism, industry, and commerce. Since 1947, a twin town of Nova Gorica has developed on the other side of the modern-day Italian–Slovenian border. The entire region was subject to territorial dispute between Italy and Yugoslavia after World War II: after the new boundaries were established in 1947 and the old town was left to Italy, Nova Gorica was built on the Yugoslav side. Taken together, the two towns constitute a conurbation, which also includes the Slovenian municipality of Šempeter-Vrtojba. Since May 2011, these three towns are joined in a common trans-border metropolitan zone, administered by a joint administration board.Gorizia is located at the confluence of the Isonzo and Vipava Valleys. It lies on a plain overlooked by the Gorizia Hills. Sheltered from the north by a mountain ridge, Gorizia is protected from the cold Bora wind that affects most of the neighbouring areas. The town thus enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate throughout the year, making it a popular resort.
