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.

*ACI Europe Airport Connectivity (higher is better) is based on the SEO NetScan connectivity model, which measures airport connectivity in a more comprehensive way. It measures the number and quality of direct/non-stop connections as well as indirect connections via other airports. The NetScan model brings the most relevant connection components of every single market (frequency, travel time, connecting time) together into a single indicator: the Airport Connectivity Index. Find out more at www.aci-europe.org.
