Lignano Sabbiadoro

Travel Guide
Lignano Sabbiadoro which includes a sandy beach
A holiday in Lignano Sabbiadoro will bring you to a long sandy peninsula with pine forests close to the Marano Lagoon, Friuli's biggest seaside holiday destination. The picturesque beach with fine sand and clear shallow water makes it a great place for families to enjoy a few days of total relaxation with their kids. When the weather is especially clear, you can see the coast of Istria in the distance. The urban area is divided into three main parts: Lignano Sabbiadoro, Lignano Pineta and Lignano Riviera.

An oasis for relaxation and every kind of fun, Lignano Sabbiadoro is halfway between Venice and Trieste. It boasts 8 kilometres of fine golden sand (from which it gets its name) and calm sea, which has been awarded the Blue Flag for many years. The beach is perfect for those who love sports and outdoor activities: from sailing to windsurfing, beach volleyball to golf, jogging to horse riding. If you prefer cycling, you'll love the wide range of well-marked routes to choose from, granting you the most evocative views of the lagoon.

Lignano encompasses three main areas, each with its own special characteristics. Lignano Sabbiadoro, for example, is the town of a thousand restaurants, open-air cafés, great window shopping and nightlife. In the evening, Lignano Sabbiadoro comes alive with lights and colours, thanks to its vast repertory of summer concerts, events and thronging discotheques. Lignano's streets and squares are continuously buzzing with people. Lignano Pineta, on the other hand, is remarkable for its stupendous gardens and elegant avenues. Lastly, Lignano Riviera is the most tranquil area, a true paradise on earth completely immersed in greenery.

A holiday in Lignano is a great option for families. The beaches and hotels have play areas for children with qualified personnel who are also available for personal baby-sitting services. Above all, Lignano is the city of theme parks for unrivalled fun: Aquasplash, one of Italy's first water parks Gulliverlandia, great for young and old alike Strabilia amusement park, with rides and a thousand lights Punta Verde Zoo Park, an animal paradise.

If you like trips out-of-doors, you can reach Marano by batana (the traditional flat-bottomed lagoon boat) or by bike, where you can enjoy the authentic atmosphere of old fishing villages, where they still speak in Venetian dialect. From there, by sea, you can reach the Foci dello Stella Nature Reserve, a natural habitat of numerous local species of flora and fauna. The Valle Canal Novo Nature Reserve is a birdwatching paradise. Be sure to visit the inland sites of the Friuli Region, too, to discover the more genuine side of this area. Towns like Precenicco, Latisana and Palazzolo guard gems of art and architecture that are definitely worth seeing. Take a look at the holiday packages to Lignano Sabbiadoro and get ready for a new unforgettable adventure.
