Lignano Riviera is the most recently urbanized area of the seaside resort, as well as the greener.
The thought of the designers and architects who worked in the building of this area, was to keep intact as much as possible the nature and to try to enhance it with low buildings surrounded by the greenery. The designers wanted a quiet and elegant part of Lignano, with a beautiful marina on the last bend of the river Tagliamento and a part of the beach almost to its original condition, with dunes and typical vegetation.
At the present we can say that their thought and work have been respected.
Lignano Riviera is the most quiet area of the city, with small villas surrounded by the green pine wood, few and low apartment complexes with pools and large gardens, the marina Marina Uno with its elegant hotel and the mouth of the river Tagliamento, offering a scenario of the past.
Here even in the summer you find the silence and the peace to spend a beach holiday different than usual.
The various small streets named calli, yes, like in Venice, enter the pine wood and lead to the villa or the apartment, that never would have seen from the main road, the cycle paths take to the relaxing beach rich in entertainment for adults and children and the restaurants, pizzerias and ice cream parlours welcome guests in familiar atmospheres with their specialities.
During the holiday in Lignano Riviera you can not remain unmoved by the beauty of the river Tagliamento: its wide mouth divides the city from Bibione, seaside resort of Veneto, and it is a perfect way for those who with the boat, want to spend moments in the open sea.
Those who want, can go along the last stretch of the river by bicycle on the cycle path on Viale Adriatico and continue then on a large street totally closed to the cars. The bike path restarts on Via Casa Bianca and goes into a part of pine wood near the Golf Club. Here you can choose if continue to the canal or if go out in front of the Golf and go to the area Punta Verde where you will find the zoo and the homonymous marina. A piece of heaven that continues along the bank of the river Tagliamento to come out in front of the canal.
Along this tour you can see the beautiful marinas Marina Uno and Marina Punta Verde, the Golf Club with its elegant restaurant, stop for a rest on the benches and play with the children in the playground along the cycle path of Via Casa Bianca, stop at the Zoo and, not least, admire the river Tagliamento and the nature of this wonderful part of Lignano.
