Grado ..

is a wonderful town,
full of history.

The roots of of Grado,  go back 1,500 years,
and the history is told through the
Roman-era churches and narrow, stone streets.

It has a modern town with a historic centre and although tiny,
, the little medieval quarter is the most charming part of Grado.
With lanes and courtyards, like a maze.
The old fishermen's houses are clustered together ,
almost on top of each other, with pretty squares and little bars and restaurants.

You had to have eyes looking everywhere ..
so much to take in!!

I will be back with more soon, but work calls
and then off to London to meet up with Leesa!!

Hope you enjoy the little tour.
