ISLAND OF SUN

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

The Italian city of Grado, mostly known among Central-European tourists as a summer vacation headquarters, is much more than just a tourist-infested destination. Not a lot of people know that it actually boasts a large congress centre, making it suitable for this type of tourism too. If you succeed in avoiding the summer rush hour, Grado will impress you with its laid-back rhythm, great congress offer and numerous incentive activities, such as the golf courses or the excellent Friulian culinary experiences. Grado’s true charm hides in the inviting alleyways of the old city centre, where the full congress potential is still waiting to be uncovered.
