Lignano offers tourists a concentrated mix of services, attractions and accommodation while keeping in close contact with its surrounding nature thanks to its recent history as seaside resort: a long beach with very fine sand, six amusement parks dedicated to all age groups, sports structures of recent construction, pedestrian areas for shopping, hotels, villages and apartments to cater for all needs and demands. And of course there are plenty of discos, pubs and wine bars looking onto the sea, the aqua-gym courses the spas and the entertainment services for children; and to continue the list, the arena for the summer concerts, a Golf Club with 18 holes, bicycle routes, horse riding schools, tennis courts and over 5,000 berths in 8 modern and fully equipped wharfs. All this in a few kilometers which are traffic free and immersed in the greenery of the surroundings.

Located mid-way between Venice and Trieste, Lignano rises on a peninsula overlooking the peaceful Adriatic Sea, at a stone’s throw from the nature reserves in the Valle Canal Novo e the Stella River Estuaries, and it has boasted the “Blue Flag of Europe” for over 20 years , symbol of the cleanliness of its beaches and its sea.

Lignano is actually made up of three wonderful cities thought out for holiday makers: Sabbiadoro: its name (sabbia d’oro = golden sand) comes from the unique color of its very fine sand. Pineta: this village was planned by the architect Marcello D’Olivo and its construction started in the 50s, it has a typical spiral-shape, so that when walking through it you are always plunged into green areas. Riviera: it is set in a large pine-wood between the beach and the mouth of the Tagliamento river.
