Grado (Venetian: Gravo, Friulian: Grau, Slovene: Gradež) is a town and comune in the north-eastern Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located on a peninsula of the Adriatic Sea between Venice and Trieste.
Once mainly a fishing center, today it is a popular tourist destination, known commonly as L'Isola del Sole ("The Sunny Island"), also famous because it is also a spa town; together with Marano Lagunare, it is the center of a lagoon, which is famous for its uncontaminated nature. Grado is the birthplace of Biagio Marin, a poet who sang about the island in the local Venetian dialect.

E' una bella, luminosa immagine di Grado, che conosco bene: ci andavo in vacanza da ragazzina. Proprio lì, dove tu hai scattato la foto, ascoltavo con i miei amici, grazie a un mangiadischi ( te lo ricordi?) canzoni dei Beatles e di Gianni Morandi. Quanto tempo è passato! Anna Paola
