Along with Marano Lagunare, it is the center of the Marano-Grado Inlet, which is famous for its pure nature and scenic beauty .Today there are regular finds of engravings, caskets, marble monuments and small bronzes that once furnished its cottages. The remains of one of these villas have been unearthed on the islet of Gorgo in the bay. Some of the places worth a visit are The Basilica of Sant'Eufemia (Cathedral), the basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, The Barbana Sanctuary which was rebuilt and enlarged. Inside the church you will find mosaics done many years ago, making for a very pretty picture. Of the ancient fort only one tower was turned into a private residential place and portions of the old walls are still visible. Underneath the Town Hall are the remnants of the Palaeo-Christian basilica of Piazza Vittoria. Today, Grado entices notches of travelers every year to its hotels and encampments.
