Grado, Old Roman Town on the Adriatic
This church has Byzantine frescoes, Venetian lions carved on the Moorish inspired pulpit, ancient mosaic floors below - and it is still actively used, second below.
Grado was a magnet resort for Romans - and it still is.
We cycled on, heading for the Italian east side of the Adriatic, bordered by the high limestone plateau of Slovenia, below.
