Tips and hintsIt is possible to use the "Bike+Barca" service on the coast of Friuli Venezia Giulia: The routes between Lignano and Marano Lagunare and between Trieste and Grado can also be covered by boat.
The tour begins on the coast of Portorož and runs from the town of Izola along the Adriatic coast to the seaport of Koper, from where it continues for about 30 km to Trieste. The cycle path winds along the Adriatic coast in a northerly direction to Monfalcone, then continues westwards via the Foce dell’Isonzo nature reserve for a total of 147 km to the coastal town of Grado. From there the route returns to the mainland via SR352 near Belvedere. We follow the SR352 to Cervignano del Friuli and turn west onto the SS14 until we reach Marano Lagunare after another 35 kilometres.
We cross several small canals and turn onto the SP56. This provincial road winds its way to Lignano Sabbiadoro. We continue west, cross the Tagliamento river and turn onto the provincial road SP42 8 Via Fausta, a little further north. After a short stopover in Portogruaro at Concordia Sagitaria, we head south again and return to the Adriatic coast after about 40 km. There we pass Caorle and Jesolo and at Punta Sabbioni near Cavallino-Treporti we cross over to Lido. Venice now lies in a north-westerly direction, Chioggia is about 27 km further south-west.
