Full description
Join a guided tour for a discovery of mosaic of history, art and nature. Depart from Trieste and upon arrival at Aquileia, a rich and flourishing city of the Roman Empire, discover its port and defensive walls. Tour the archaeological area to see the excavations of the Roman forum, the river port, the late antiquity markets and an area of necropolis called sepolcreto (little tomb). Admire the Crypt of the Frescos and Excavations, and discover the history of Christian Aquileia from the early centuries, and the so-called Holy Sepulcher. Make your next stop at Grado, the Golden Island, joined to the mainland by a thin strip of land and embellished by a maze of islands that form its evocative lagoon. Visit the historic center, with its Venetian features and alleys lined with picturesque fishermen’s houses. At the center are the remains of the ancient settlement of the Church of Corte. Walk along the Nazario Sauro promenade and enjoy a splendid view of the Karst, Trieste and the Istrian coast.

Aquileia church was beautiful, and relaxing walk along Grado beach

Our bus driver and our tour guide (Annalisa) were very good, and we enjoyed their company during the tour. We enjoyed Aquieleia and Grado very much, both different experiences (Aquileia being more historical and small town feel, and Grado being more a weekend town with lots more shops and eating places), but highly worth the trip. It ould have been good to have some more choices available for lunch at Aquileia.
