Grado is situated roughly halfway between Venice
and Trieste and was once a small fishing village.
The fishing industry is still active and was very much in evidence
as we entered the harbour,
passing numerous fishing vessels moored on either side, but today
Grado is also a popular tourist resort which prides itself on
its clean sandy beaches, safe bathing and mild climate.
