Agriturismo Casa Gioconda: dintorni


La Casa Gioconda is an ideal place for those who wish to join the green and active holiday with the beach holiday. The house, in fact, is located few kilometres from the famous and beautiful beaches of Bibione and Lignano Sabbiadoro.
At the day at the beach you can alternate the excursion by boat or canoe on the river Tagliamento near the house, the horse and bike ride and the relaxation of a massage at the accommodation.
In addition, La Casa Gioconda is located halfway between Venice and Trieste, two cities which do not need presentation: the House is perfect starting-point for several tours to the many wonderful spots that can be visited all around, of historical and cultural interest, with private or public transports.
The archaelogical site of Aquileia is famous for the richness of its ancient Roman remains and the good state of its mosaics.
Only few kms far is the town of Concordia Sagittaria (Julia Concordia), of Roman origins, with archaelogical excavations all around the ancient cathedral. In the near region Friuli Venezia Giulia there are the mediaeval city of Cividale del Friuli, ancient capital of the Longobards, and the sixteenth-century Palmanova, bulwark against the turkish invasion, known for its city map.
Last but not least, Udin, the cultural capital of the Friuli, and the magnificent Villa Manin in Passariano, the country-house of the last Doge of Venice. In 1797 Napoleon himself stayed there on the occasion of the treaty of Campoformido.
Today, it is the seat of the regional centre of art cataloguing, and a restoration school, and during the summer, in its huge park, concerts and cultural events take place.
