Grado & Aquileia Day Trip
We'll meet at 9 am at the Riva Tre Novembre in Trieste and set off on a one-hour bus journey to Aquileia.
When we arrive we'll go on a tour of the main tourist attractions in Aquileia with an audio guide. We'll start by visiting the Roman Forum, the ancient river port and the Via Sacra.
Our next stop will be at the Cathedral, Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta a World Heritage Site. Inside we'll marvel at magnificent mosaics that are over 1000 years old! We'll also visit its crypts to admire the spectacular frescoes.
