Lignano in autunno

The closing of the season just ended has brought with it sun loungers, deck chairs and beach umbrellas that had populated our beautiful Lignano from May to the end of September. But even if most of our customers visit our beaches only when the high temperatures take over, it should be known that Lignano is a bit like New York… It never sleeps. Hence, the town is populated with activities and events that keep us company in the coming months, those in which the leaves fall, and we crunch chestnuts. So, what to do in Lignano in autumn? Find out with us!

In Lignano walking is a must 

The frame of the charm of Lignano during the autumn is given by the beach that moves towards a return to all its immense, silent, uncontaminated spaces again. Lignano is also gladdened by those who take advantage of the last glimmers of sunshine to not let go of the suntan conquered with so much sweat. And it is just on beautiful sunny days that, if you are around here, you cannot miss one of the favourite activities of the persons from Lignano born and bred: the promenade along the seaside.

Take your time and relax by walking among the grains of sand that make you work hard… But what a satisfaction! Fresh sand grains, at times washed by the waves, can make you lose yourself in your thoughts while a few shells peep out from time to time. 

If the Lignano summer stroll gathers in the central pedestrian avenue, autumn is the perfect time to deeply breathe the surrounding nature. You can also stroll not only along the seafront, but also along the lagoon, a 4 km path that extends on the opposite side of the beach which releases all its charm when the sun goes down. From its name you can imagine why: The colours of sunset. the stopover in the Belvedere Trabucco is a must!

If you still have some energy left, you can finish off with an outdoor workout in the fitness and calisthenics equipped area nearby!

But Lignano is not just nature and, as anticipated, in the late summer, it becomes the hub of activities and events of local as well as national and international importance.
