    We stayed a few days in Aquileia, had seen a documentary on the Basilica and were eager to see it live. But you can't explain what you feel by visiting, because you feel small in front of so much beauty. The mosaics leaves, are very unique and you can spend hours to admire them, there are many details that are revealed bit by bit. Must see Crypts, the Bell Tower, the Baptistery. Also worth visiting is the cemetery of the heroes of the great war, just behind the basilica. You cannot take pictures inside the Basilica, which initially left me disappointed. In fact, forbid the pictures not only will preserve the mosaics but will give visitors the ability to remember those that are true works of art. Ticketing staff deserves a nod.

    Gradoban good, but on the basis of a recommendation of the morning átbicikliztünk here. Very worth it since it is nice, with a delicious coffee we drank and at the croissants. Grado-Aquileia CA. 45 minutes, along the cycle path built.
