Until the beginning of the last century, Lignano was a little village “borgo” of fishermen surrounded by dunes, water channels, pines and grassy beach but not even a century later the peninsula was transformed in a modern city on the sea with 8 km of sandy beach, rich in attractions, hotels, apartments, villas, bungalow, residences, campings, dance-pubs, restaurants, amusement parks and sport facilities.
The beach of Lignano is rich in bathing facilities that guarantee fine services for your wellness at the sea on vacation with the family.
Beyond a wide choice of water games, Lignano offers you great opportunities for the open space sports lovers, from the horse riding to the long excursions by bike along the bicycle lanes that join the entire city and the golf.
