Cycling in Grado

Grado is the cyclist's paradise!

Thanks to its network of cycle paths within the city, the Alpe Adria Cycle Route and the FVG2, Cycle Route, Grado is a cyclist's paradise! The island is located at the end of the Alpe Adria, the best cycle path in Europe in 2015, with its beautiful mountain, hilly and lagoon landscapes stretching for 425 km, starting from Salzburg; other routes wind through roads, vineyards, fields and paths that run along the sea and connect Grado to the two nature reserves and the scenic Golf Course.

If you arrived in Grado by bike and you have to go back to Austria, or if you want to discover the surroundings of the island by bike, you can use the BiciBus service. The BiciBus service from Grado to Udine runs from April to September every Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. In July Bicibus operates every day. From Udine to return to Austria you must then take the MI.CO.TRA train; find out all the timetables HERE.

During the summer months, from June to September, Grado is connected by boat to Trieste and to Lignano Sabbiadoro every day except Mondays. In the event that conditions are not suitable for navigation, a replacement bus service with a bike wagon will be activated. On TPL FVG motor vessels you can travel with your bicycle (no more than one bicycle per passenger) within the limits of available space and at the discretion of the captain. We therefore advise you to enquire in advance about the availability of the service, especially during peak hours and at weekends.
